Recycling - Recovering Valuable Material

The primary target market for Impact is the recycling sector for density separation whereby the removal of unwanted dust and fibres from the dry recyclables results in a ‘cleaner,’ more valuable product. This is a sector in which the systems pay for themselves in a short period of time and the customer can calculate the additional revenue they can make by improving the quality of their recyclables.

The recycling market continues to be buoyant as world interest in protecting the environment and natural resources rises. Within the UK there have been recent changes in legislation (increases in landfill tax) to incentivise processors to improve the quality of their recyclables, making Impact Air Systems even more desirable.

Waste & Trim Extraction
Impact's market for waste and trim removal systems is also far reaching. Our solutions allow production facilities to automatically collect ‘waste or scrap’ trim and convey it to a collection point, typically a baler or compactor where it can then be collected for recycling. These systems typically allow the customer to generate revenue from their waste whilst fulfilling their obligation to recycle. The systems also eliminate the need for staff to have to keep removing the waste and allow production to run continuously. Impact’s most worked with sectors are print, corrugated, board/carton, beverage can, label, foil and film.

For both our recycling and waste and trim customers, nuisance dust is an inevitable by-product and problem for operational areas. We provide a range of effective dust control systems which are designed with in-depth knowledge of the European ATEX directive for equipment intended for use in potentially explosive atmospheres.

Global Operations

For the last 20 years we have provided air systems outside of the UK. These opportunities primarily arose as a result of UK customers choosing to put similar systems in their other facilities outside of the UK. However, as our internet presence improved, we received enquiries and installed systems across the globe for a huge variety of customers.

In order to better serve customers outside of the UK, Impact has established a number of trade partnerships in Japan, Poland, Russia, Spain and the Netherlands. For the last 4 years Impact has also had an exclusive trade partnership agreement with CP Manufacturing in the US, the leading recycling system provider for that area. 

Our project team have vast experience of installing systems in a variety of environments across the globe. They are well versed in the management of imports and exports and understand the importance of safe and efficient transportation of goods.

Impact's installation teams are also used to working outside of the UK for weeks at a time. They understand the importance of doing the best job first time and communicate with the customer to ensure the health and safety of the site is maintained at all times. They pride themselves on efficient installations with minimum downtime and disruption to the customer and existing operations.

Commissioning & Quality

Once installed, Impact also have a commissioning team to ensure that the system is running to specification, to address any teething problems and to train staff in the safe and efficient use of the system and any maintenance required.

We pride ourselves on providing a quality system at a reasonable price. We strive to ensure that we have the most up to date knowledge, software and equipment. Our quality management system is certified to ISO9001:2008 and we have Investors in People status.

All staff have an in depth technical understanding of the systems we provide and ensure that the customer is consulted and kept up to date throughout the project.

Our combination of 2D and 3D modelling software allows our design team to provide accurate drawings at proposal and project stages.

Impact Air Systems enjoy repeat orders from the majority of their customers and establish long term relationships with key contacts due to the trust and confidence that they exceed expectations.
