Windshifter SDS: single drum separator


The SDS windshifter separates the waste input into two fractions:

  • heavy

  • light

Characteristics single drum separator

The SDS is a highly versatile separator that processes a large variety of waste streams. This high capacity separator system is capable of processing e.g.:

  • Bad shredded materials

Details and separating process SDS

The Single Drum Separator (SDS) has one splitter drum, at which the heavy material is separated from the light material. View the picture below for the operating principles.

The heavy fraction

The heavy fraction falls down in front of the splitter drum and is discharged by means of a conveyor. 

The light fraction

The light fraction is transported over the splitter drum and will be separated from the air in the expansion room.
