Function - Shaftless Screw Compactor
Transport and pressing of materials proceed via a heavy shaftless spiral in a plastic wearing plate. Maximum transport length is 10 m.
The water is drained off in the bottom outlet, where the wearing plate is cut into tapered slits in order to prevent blockages. From there the screen solids pass up into the pressure zone. The pressure zone consists of a tube made from trapezoid sections 1 mm apart.
The spiral stops halfway up the pressure zone, enabling formation of a blockage. Friction is further increased by the bend in the outlet, thus pressing the water out of the goods and leading it off to the bottom drain. The pressure zone is fitted with a removable hatch for inspection and cleaning.
The pressure zone also features a rinsing divice to ease cleaning of both pressure zone and bottom drain.
