GLOSSARY OF EQUIPMENT 4. Ballistic separator paddles. 100-101 and the supply stream to the machine. Reference values for ballistic separator slopes range from 13º-20º depending on the manufacturer. • Installed power. The installed power in a ballistic separator is related to capacity. Ballistic separators with low capacity generally have a single 5 kW motor, while ballistic separators with large capacity require to 5 kW motors. • Separation effectiveness. A ballistic separator is considered to operate correctly when the percentage of rolling material in the rolling current is greater than 90% and the percentage of light flat material in the flat or light material current is also greater than 90%. • Fans. Some ballistic separator models have fans in the top part. These fans, which can be 2 or 3 depending on the ballistic separator capacity, help improve the distribution of light flat and rolling materials, as they push light materials towards the collection chute. • Supply. The supply to the ballistic separator must be performed such that it fulfils two goals: to use the maximum possible sifting area of the ballistic separator and to achieve an optimum distribution between rolling and light flat material. The drop from the supply conveyor to the ballistic separator must be arranged such that the ramp is fed at a position equivalent to one third from the end of the ramp constituting the rolling fraction collection. The optimum implementation of the ballistic separator supply conveyor to the aforementioned ramp position must be direct and longitudinally to the ballistic separator shaft. However, two supply formats can exist depending on space limitations: transverse and inverse feeding. In both cases, the drop must be considered for proper operation of the machine.
