Screening of ferrous and non-ferrous metals

Maximum efficiency and productivity

The efficiency of the Ecostar dynamic disc screen, combined with the resistance of the Hardox with which it is made, guarantees maximum efficiency and reliability in the separation of ferrous and non-ferrous metal waste by size and the elimination of inert materials.

Metals and the importance of the screening process 

The use of an innovative screening system increases the value of the metal, especially in the case of large quantities, as it is able to group any type of metal in homogeneous fractions and, at the same time, reduces the operating space necessary to clean the inert materials from metal fractions.

The advantages of Ecostar solutions

Superior flexibility, maximum accuracy in sizing and cleaning the resulting metal fractions from inert materials, low maintenance costs and limited energy consumption are just some of the advantages of Ecostar screens.

The best technology in the treatment of ferrous and non-ferrous metals

DDS (Dynamic Disc Screening) is Ecostar’s patented technology particularly efficient for the processing of scrap metal. DDS allows real time changes to the predetermined screening section (± 30%), which can be obtained by varying the speed of the shafts with the help of the inverter.
