Density separation with the Hyrocyclone - Precise sorting for greater purity

The key factor in the economic success of a recycling operation is the purity level of the plastic material. And standards of purity will only continue to increase in the future. In practice, plastic waste is usually mixed. For example:

  • Heavy PET drink bottles are mixed with lightweight HDPE and PP caps
  • PVC must be separated from high-value HDPE and/or PP
  • Foreign objects such as stones, glass cullet or stainless steel must be separated from PET, PP and HDPE

Most separation tanks available on the market are poorly designed and constructed, using strong water currents that can interfere with density separation in the gravity field. Air bubbles that gather on the surface of the plastic material can also keep heavy particles afloat. Sorting plastics in this way is often ineffective and leads to poor results.

Pla.to provides a solution for achieving density separation with a gravity field of more than 20 g.

Success lies in the precise details we incorporate for better separation results.
