Patented screening solutions and more premiered at Ecomondo

More than 1080 brands presented innovative equipment and clean tech solutions at Ecomondo tradeshow in Rimini, Italy. Recycling technology provider Ecostar launched not one but two new products; a new stationary screen called “Easy One”, and its new screening technology “SWAT”.

The circular economy and renewable energy were main topics of interest at the 25th edition of the international exhibition. The event, which included 500 hours of conferences and seminars, took place from 26-29 October.

Ecostar took the opportunity to demonstrate its screening solutions. The Easy One disc screen was specially designed to screen waste materials such as tyres, aggregates, and organic fractions, such as wood. ‘Its name sums up its mission: to make difficult tasks easy while minimising problems,’ says Filippo Cappozzo, ceo sales & marketing at Ecostar.  

The stationary screening product accurately separates simple materials, and is reinforced to withstand impacts from heavy materials. Besides, Easy One’s new traction shafts absorb stress and vibrations to minimise wear and maintenance operations. ‘Customers can choose from up to 14 screening sections to find the best solution for their type of material, composition and size,’ Cappozzo adds.

The new stationary screen, Easy One, is made of high quality and highly resistant materials allowing it to reach production volumes up to 60 tonnes per hour.

SWAT was created to allow operators to quickly modify the screening section on-site. The patented technology can be installed on all Hexact and Hextra screening solutions, with screening sections from 100mm. The new separation system was designed in particular for screening plastic scrap, multi-material, paper and cardboard.

SWAT discs consist of two semicircles with a double spiral which can be mounted in series directly on the drive shaft between the hexagonal discs. ‘Depending on the position of the discs, it is possible to configure different screening sections, from 200mm to 150mm or from 200mm  to 100mm in just a few minutes,’ Cappozzo points out.
