  • Ballistic Separator - From poor relation to serious opponent

    Up until recently the ballistic separator was generally seen as an unreliable machine with horrendous maintenance costs. The ballistic separator is still suffering from this prejudice, although the technology has changed. There has been a large step forward in development due to the increasing demand for ballistic separators for sorting lightweight packaging and co-mingled materials. With the ...

  • “CO-MINGLED” SORTING WITH THE BEST EFFICIENCY

    Ballistic separators are a standard when sorting “co-mingled waste”. Even 20 years ago various experiments were carried out to try and imitate the ballistic effect with other machines. Until now the sorting quality and efficiency of the ballistic separator has not been achieved in any of the experiments with tilted conveyor belts, disk screens, banana screens, star screens and ...

  • Electrical conductance in a typical linear and cyclic quantum wire

    Theoretical studies on electrical conductance in nanostructures which consist of two semi-infinite leads separated by a typical molecular wire are carried out within Green's function (GF) formalism in the linear regime. For this reason, the GF of extended molecular wire is obtained. Hence, the electrical conductance of the system is derived theoretically, using the GF elements and wire ...
