The equipment dimensions are agreed upon individually depending on the functions to be performed.

The disc separator is designed for sorting bulk materials (including timber and wood waste: sawdust, chips, bark). The device consists of a frame, rollers with discs and a gear motor providing the torque. Neighbouring rollers are rotated by a chain gear. The discs are removable, allowing the disc spacing to be varied.

The feed material with the required dimensions (standard material) passes through the gaps between the rotating discs and is discharged from the bottom. The rotating discs move the substandard material across the surface to the discharge point.

The customised disc separator offers the following technical advantages in all sizes:

  1. The gear motor can be located on either side of the equipment.
  2. Quick-release hatches allow visual inspection of the main components.
  3. Plastic guides made of PE-1000 to reduce chain wear.

Output particle size and capacity depend on the distance between the separator discs. Increased capacity is achieved by raising the number of rollers, the separator width and the drive speed.
