Fiber Compactor for paper and plastic waste

Fiber Compactor FKA / FKC
Fiber Compactor

Separating and compacting units
for textile, paper and plastic waste

Functional Description

The dust-laden air stream enters the separator tangentially at the top, creating a rotating airflow (vortex). By centrifugal force, the dust particles are moved along the outside wall where they are separated and, in a spiral motion, deposited to final collection point. In the lower part of the housing, the air stream is forced to reverse and flows upwards through the vortex. The cyclone separators are particularly suitable for the separation of dust with low content of fibers and granules.

The pre-compacted material is pressed against a diaphragm at the bottom outlet opening. This continuous process compacts the material and pushes the diaphragm open. The material is discharged into a suitable container or bag. This continuous operation of the units prevents fluctuations in the extraction system.

Fiber Compactor (FKA / FKC)

The separating and compacting units are perfectly suitable for paper residue, edge strips, foil shreds and different shredded plastics. The solid particles are extracted from the production process by suction, separated from the air stream and deposited in bags, containers or silos.
