The Machinex Group, based in Plessisville, Que., has introduced the latest addition to its range of separators, the MACH Ballistic. Machinex says it introduced the new separator to offer a wider range of products to its clients. The ballistic separator is a European-based sorting technology.  

The MACH Ballistic separator is designed for sorting two-dimensional material such as plastic film, paper, cardboard and fibers from three-dimensional material such as containers, plastic bottles, cans, stone wood, etc. While the two-dimensional material travels up the slope in a forward direction with the paddles, the three-dimensional material bounces or rolls downward. Fine particles can be collected separately with the optional variable screen openings, according to the company.

The separator is designed to handle different material types, including: single-stream, municipal solid waste, commercial and industrial waste. The MACH Ballistic includes multiple separators designed to be stacked or paralleled to address various sorting challenges.

By manufacturing this new equipment, Machinex says it wanted to offer a screening alternative for its clients. On top of offering an exceptional material screening quality, the MACH Ballistic requires minimal maintenance, significantly reducing repair costs.

“We know the challenges that our customers have to face; the quality of the sorted material has become an issue on the market and the downtime for the maintenance of equipment is costly to the sorting centers. With the MACH Ballistic, we are offering a sorting solution adapted to the actual market, Pierre Paré, president of the Machinex Group, says.
