Screw Compactors

SCREW COMPACTORS are used for the transport, washing and dewatering of screenings and various solid materials.

They can be installed horizontally or inclined to suit application requirements. In conventional design the material is collected into the inlet hopper and is transported by a rotating screw that is situated into a trough with protective lining and lid cover. Solids are washed with the use of clean water spraying system installed into the unit. Compaction is performed into the last section of the unit and moisture content is adjusted via the counter compression system. Discharge of solids is through an end shoot. Continuous nylon bag may be mounted on the discharge shoot to allow convenient collection and elimination of odours. Drive gear motors are positioned at the front of the unit near the receiving hoper in a screw push configuration. SCREW COMPACTORS are tailored to serve the particular system requirements taking into consideration side conditions and specifications.
