The trommel separator is excellent for removing small contaminants such as glass, metals, wood, paper/cardboard, and others before the plastic bottles are granulated. On top of its applications in PET recycling, the trommel separator is often found being used in municipal waste separation.
How It Works
The trommel is a large cylindrical mesh screen tunnel that slowly rotates. To transmit the PET bottles forward, the trommel is set at a tilt and flaps are added on the interior to continuously flip and guide the PET bottles in a forward motion. As the PET bottles slowly moves through this large piece of separation equipment, small pieces of unwanted contamination such as broken glass falls through the mesh screen and is collected. The holes on the screen are small enough so PET bottles do not fall through.
ASG offers a standard trommel that is 1500mm in diameter and 4500mm long with automatic brush units to keep the mesh filters clean. Depending on your requirements, ASG can also provide trommels made to your specifications.
