Foils such as shopping bags and wrappings make the recyclables sorting process more difficult and more time-consuming. The filmgrabber has been developed to solve this problem.
The Filmgrabber removes foils from a recyclables stream at the beginning of the separation process. In this way over 70 percent of the foil larger than A4 will be removed. The machine consists of a revolving drum with a variable speedmotor and inward and outward moving pins. The recyclables are moved up by air, which allows the foils and films to be picked up by the pins inside the revolving trommel.
- Removes foil from the beginning of the material flow
- Saves time
