The EKS Electrostatic Separators for the separation of polymers can separate mixed plastics, achieving a purified plastics-fraction using a dry process at low processing costs.Material mixes of PS/ABS, PVC/rubber, HDPE/PP, PET/PVC, PP/PS, ABS/PMMA, PVC/PE and many others are efficiently separated. The EKS systems separate material mixtures independently of their colour and can also handle plastics which are black. The polymer mixtures for separation need to be dry and dust-free with a partical size from 6 to 12 mm.
The KWS Electrostatic Metals/ Plastic Separators separate even the smallest metal particles from plastics and other non-conductive materials, using a dry separation process. This technology separates metals, such as steel, copper, aluminum and precious metals. Conductive materials, such as wood, paper, conductive rubber etc., are also separated from plastics. For best results, the material to be separated must be dry and have a particle size of less than 5 mm.
