The efficient de-packaging machine reducing the level of organics going to landfill
Since taking on the agency in 2019 for the Atritor Turbo Separator, Wastech has seen a high level of interest in this efficient de-packaging technology. With one installation already commissioned this year and two more due to be installed shortly, our customers are experiencing the benefits offered by this simple, but very effective piece of de-packaging equipment.
The Turbo Separator offers a range of de-packaging machines developed and engineered to efficiently separate organics from their packaging, ready for recycling or disposal. The equipment is ideal for separating out-of-date, out-of-specification and mislabelled products from a wide variety of packaging; including cans, plastic bottles and boxes.
Depending on the model selected, the Turbo Separator provides the flexibility to be used across a wide range of applications including separating paper from gypsum in plasterboard, removing organics from packaging in food waste and for separating general foodstuff from its packaging.
The technology combines centrifugal forces, self-generated airflow and mechanical processes to successfully remove up to 99 per cent of dry or liquid material from packaging, which can then be recycled or disposed of correctly to minimise the organics going to landfill.
Along with achieving its impressive separation rate which is higher than other package separation methods, it also delivers many operational efficiencies . The Turbo Separator is also more cost effective to operate than competitors thanks to a lower power consumption.
