The film grabber system is usually combined with a bag opener installed upstream.
The material is carried into the machinery through a conveyor belt, airflow is then blown on the falling materials. The airflow is adjusted in terms of direction and capacity by the regulation system of the machine. A group of special spikes placed on a rotating drum captures the lighter materials (film and plastic bags) and conveys them downstream, thus sorting them from the other recyclable materials.
The film grabber has a high-efficiency blower fan suitable for effective separation of the material with reduced energy consumption.
