ballistic separator

[bə′lis·tik ′sep·ə‚rād·ər]
(civil engineering)
A device that takes out noncompostable material like stones, glass, metal, and rubber, from solid waste by passing the waste over a rotor that has impellers to fling the material in the air; the lighter organic (compostable) material travels a shorter distance than the heavier (noncompostable) material.
