Ballistic Separator BRT HARTNER BPS for Waste Paper

Ballistic Separator for the Separation of Cardboard and Cardboard Boxes from Waste Paper and for Fine Screening of Impurities from the Mixed Paper

The Ballistic Separator BRT HARTNER BPS is the best choice for an effective sorting process with high availability at low cost. The Ballistic Separator separates the material into two fractions. The waste paper falls through the openings of the paddles. Subject to its climbing ability cardboard travels upward, to the overflow at the upper end of the machine. The vertical acceleration mixes the material thoroughly which leads to good separation with a high separation quality. The construction with several screening decks in a row supports the efficiency.

Ballistic Separators are the best alternative in comparison to disc screens or rotor screens. They are nearly entanglement-free as well as maintenance-friendly and flexible in use.

The size of the openings in the paddles is reduced for the fine screening of the previously generated mixed paper fraction. Thus, problematic fine shares and impurities are removed from the material which enhances the deinking quality.

A sturdy machine design for continuous operation, a wide variety for different types of application and a patented bearing distinguish the BRT HARTNER BPS Ballistic Separator. The bearings are exchangeable without dismounting of the shaft. A high-maintenance crankshaft is not necessary. In addition, the machine impresses with a shock-absorber-system for each paddle and a central lubrication system. It is available in different construction designs, variable lengths and widths and with several types of additional equipment.

The machine is driven by an electric gear motor with frequency converter, the transfer of the torque onto the crankshaft at the output side is done by the paddles. The sieve grids can be exchanged easily. Maintenance openings which are secured with safety door switches facilitates the maintenance of the Ballistic Separator BPS.
