The TWISTER separation process differs from conventional methods; it doesn’t rely on size reduction but utilizes a vortex effect. Similar to a twister or tornado, light materials ascend in a spiral movement during turbulence.
The TWISTER is the only de-packager that can handle large plastics and textiles, even small carpets without requiring a pre-shredder. The exclusive filtration screens yield a clean organic mixture without necessitating a second pass.
Upon entering the separation chamber, the packaging swiftly separates from the organics due to the vortex effect acting on lighter materials. Chains open the bags upon entry. The separation process is solely driven by wind force, not shredding. The packaging materials removed maintain a larger size and are instantly lifted by the twister movement, as opposed to being conveyed over a screen to a compacting zone. The organics freely drain from the bottom.
To prevent the accumulation of heavier organics at the chamber’s bottom, continuous chain action grinds and eliminates debris. This eliminates the need for end-of-shift cleaning or any maintenance stops during operation.
