Separation by static electricity

06/04/2017 at 15:02

Hi everyone,
In a quest to find the best sorting methods I made multiple post on different ways of separating plastics.
In this post I will explain separation by static electricity.

Another industrial way of separation is static separation. With this method a sample of plastic is dropped between 2 static charged plates, and the amount of static energy the sample absorbs determines the type of plastic
+ relatively simple principle
– High voltages

– Which kind of plastic will be affected by anot, catot?
– How to make electric plate? How much voltage? How is it work?
