INSTALLATION: Plastic Film Capture and Dust Control System installed at waste facility in Wisconsin, USA.

Posted on: 7 November 2023

Due to the impressive results from previously installed Impact film capture systems in the UK and at various waste facilities across the USA and Canada, our customer has ordered numerous systems from Impact to further improve their efforts to remove flexible plastic contaminants resulting in high quality waste streams for recycling.

Impact’s Airlift is an innovative solution designed to work in conjunction with optical sorters to capture film that has been rejected from the material stream by the optical sorter air injection. Film contamination is collected using the Impact Airlift system, allowing other reject materials, such as rigid plastics, to be removed for overall improved quality.

The benefits of the Airlift system include:

  • Improves the quality of the material stream by effectively removing FPP.
  • Reduces maintenance of downstream machinery due to FPP blockages
  • Potential to increase film and flexible packaging recovery to be used as a fuel source
  • Significantly reduces manual sorting labour requirements and costs
  • Significantly improves the performance of downstream processes by removing unwanted/tangling contaminants
  • High material throughput capabilities
  • Low maintenance and minimal downtime with quick release inspection doors
  • Additional solutions to work in conjunction such as pneumatic transfer, dust control filtration and briquetters
