Our partner, Impact Air, specializes in solutions to support various material recovery facilities. Impact Air’s technology use air to convey dry materials, such as foil, film, dust and fractions of paper and plastic that can otherwise be very costly and difficult to remove from the material streams. The CP Group and Impact Air Systems have an exclusive partnership in USA, Canada and Mexico.

Impact Air Machinery offered and Distributed by CP:

ZigZag Separation:

The Impact ZigZag separation system is ideal for shredded or granulated plastics, rubber, WEEE material, C&D waste and plasterboard. It has a fully adjustable cascade cleaning solution, is suitable for most recycling facilities, and designed to efficiently remove lightweight material and debris from the material stream. Differences in particle shape and density cause the “lights” to be lifted up by the air stream, while the “heavies” discharge from the bottom, providing excellent rates of separation.

AirKnife Separator:

The versatile AirKnife’s main function is to remove lightweight “un-pickable” items such as paper, plastic and foil from the material stream. The input air creates a high velocity air stream through which the falling material has to travel. The lighter material fractions are blown or separated from the falling material and are captured by the extraction hood and conveyed away. The heavier material is unaffected by the incoming air stream and falls through the air stream onto the conveyor below.



Film Vac System:

The Film Vac offers flexible solutions for collecting and conveying handpicked material, such as plastic film, during the manual sorting process. Material is typically fed directly into a bale press or the Impact Film Screw to reduce material volumes. The Film Vac System reduces labor costs and eliminates the need for transfer stations and additional storage bunkers.



Pneumatic Transfer Lines:

The Pneumatic Transfer System allows separated dry materials like plastic containers, aluminum, and beverage cans to be conveyed through a system of silos directly to storage bunkers or balers using the most direct route, eliminating the need to utilize multiple conveyors, which often take up valuable space.




Dust Control System:

Processing waste in a MRF can generate a lot of dust which can create an unpleasant working environment for employees, housekeeping issues and significant fire risks as airborne dust particles come to rest on plant equipment. These dust control solutions can be integrated into the MRF using stand alone fully automatic filter systems or incorporated into other centralized pneumatic conveying systems.






High Capacity Drum AirKnife:

The technology used for Impact’s High Capacity Drum AirKnife takes many of its design elements from the existing airknife system, utilizing a high velocity channel of air, through which the in feed material must travel. The addition of the rotating drum in this application has dramatically increased separation efficiency.
