We were asked by the customer, Pets at Home, to design a system to separate sawdust and hay from most other objects. In the system pictured below, the products are sucked from a twin vibratory feeder, allowing a powerful fan to blow this directly into a 14-metre road wagon. The conveying air is sucked out of the wagon and filtered in a continuously rated filter. The dust is vacuumed directly out of the filter and is blown back into the road wagon. The system has been designed to handle up to two tons per hour.
Since the installation has been completed the disposal costs have been dramatically reduced! Other objects which include paper, cups, toys and so on are segregated automatically.
