The Ecostar materials separators are superior to vibrating screens in terms of increased productivity, lower investment and maintenance costs and better quality of the screened product.
A vibrating screen is able to separate up to 190 cubic meters/h of material. With wood alone, Ecostar’s dynamic disc screening reaches 400 cubic meters/h with the same screening surface and installed power.
The total investment costs for vibrating screens are very high because they need sturdy reinforced concrete foundations to withstand the strong vibrations. In contrast the Hexact dynamic disc screen simply “rests” on the ground on its legs. With the same screen length, the size of a typical vibrating screen is much larger than that of an Ecostar screen. Hexact reduced footprint results in the reduction in investment costs related to structures: up to 800% less for accessory structures, up to 30% less for conveyor belts.
Vibrating screens use a “passive” screening system: they work by lowering the material by gravity. In the Ecostar Dynamic Screens, thanks to the patented design of the discs, the material flows over the discs, optimizing the separation of the two fractions, which results in high screening quality.
