Screw compactors dewatering screenings
We offer three type of waste compactors achieving different dry substance of the compacted product.
- Spiral screw and pressurised trapdoor (dryness of about 20%)
- Hydraulic piston compactor (dryness of about 30%)
- Wash press - "high pressure" screw washer (dryness> 40%)
The washing screw compactor - "high pressure" allows a dryness of 35 to 60%, while eliminating effectively organic substances through its integrated washing system. Washing the screenings increases the dry substance.
After washing, the screenings consist mainly of paper and plastic, which provides a very high compression and a decrease in the volume of waste. Decreasing the amount of waste with very high dryness reduces the landfilling or incineration costs significantly.
The washing press ensures a return on investment very quickly.
