The Centro Recupero Carta facility has a plant with two ballistic separators for automatic waste-paper sorting, which signifi cantly reduces the manpower required for manual sorting. Centro Recupero Carta SpA acquired this, the third, plant from Ecomaster, which had supplied the first one in 1994. Paper mills now produce paper for newspapers using 100% recycled paper treated in their de-inking plants. This has made specifications even more restrictive for the acceptance of waste paper as raw material. In particular, newsprint must be separated from cardboard and small-size paper as they are not suitable for deinking. Centro Recupero Carta’s plant has two ballistic separators set up in sequence; they automatically select paper, thus limiting the use of manpower for manual selection. Ballistic separators are special screens where screening is favored by the ballistic effect induced by oscillating elements that form the screening surface. The first ballistic separator screens cardboard, which is sent to one of three balers, which were bought by the customer, while small-size material is sent to the second separator. This machine eliminates small size paper, which is then packed by the press used only for less valuable paper product. The large size material separated by the secondary ballistic separator, in other words material to be de-inked, is manually sorted in the plant previously designed by Ecomaster because cardboard and low quality paper are still present, even if in a limited quantity. The conveying system of the plant is designed so that each product is taken directly to the relative baler, without any need for further handling.
