Screening of multi-material and mixed materials

Excellent separation quality and high yield 

When talking about mixed materials screening, Ecostar screens are extremely efficient as they are capable of reaching high production output in a small space, managing to recover the most valuable materials.

Mixed materials and the importance of the screening process

Packaging mixed material can be made up of plastics, PET, metal cans, paper or glass, in different quantities and types depending on the area in which it is collected. With the use of a dynamic disc screen, it is possible to obtain different fractions with well-separated and clean materials, ready for their respective subsequent recycling processing. Ecostar screens can also separate caps, labels and aggregate, PET bottles, flasks and different plastics such as films, bags, and large plastic items.

The advantages of Ecostar solutions

Using Ecostar’s dynamic disc screens, either stationary or mobile, it is possible to obtain high yield, more efficient use of space, and a net reduction in energy consumption. Ecostar technologies enable real time interventions on the pre-established screening section.

The best screening technology to process multi-materials

SWAT (Screening Width Adjustment Technology) is the Ecostar patented technology specifically designed for mixed materials screening that can be installed on Dynamic Disc Screens (DDS) in order to quickly modify the screening section on-site according to the customer’s needs.
