SWAT, screening technology for large materials

SCREENING WIDTH ADJUSTMENT TECHNOLOGY

SWAT is the patented Ecostar technology particularly efficient with materials such as PET and plastic, paper and cardboard and multi-material. SWAT can be installed on DDS screens in order to quickly change the screening section on-site according to the customer’s production needs and the material to be screened.

Top efficiency and on-site customization

SWAT discs consist of two semicircles with a double spiral which are mounted in series directly on the drive shaft between the hexagonal discs. Depending on the positioning of the SWAT discs, it is possible to configure different screening sections, ranging from 150 mm to 200 mm or from 200 mm to 100 mm, in just a few minutes. The installation can be carried out on site on operational DDS screens with screening sections starting at 100 mm and above.

SWAT: optimized anti-wrapping separation

The double spiral shape pushes large materials upward, separating the oversize from the undersize more efficiently. In addition, the risk of material wrapping around the shaft is minimized and the quality of the separation is increased.
