Press screw separator

The purpose of the press screw separator is to effectively dewater, compress and transport materials containing a high proportion of water. The material to be pressed is transported via a screw to the conical pressing head.

The compressed material is pressed through the conveying tube to the outside where it falls into a container, or is transported onwards on a conveyor belt for example. The liquid which is pressed outpasses through the slotted sievewhich is fitted inside the pressing head into the collection tray which is attached underneath. Liquid can be removed via connectors in the base of the tray.

The press screw separator can also be built with an adjustable outlet at the pressing head. This allows the degree of compression, and therefore water removal, to be adjusted to different materials.
