Matpro Machinery is the proud exclusive distributor of Ecostar machinery to the UK and Irish market. Ecostar have undertaken 20 years of research and as a result, have developed custom solutions for the screening of every kind of waste stream. They are synonymous with the most advanced and refined technology in the mechanical separation of waste.
Dynamic Disk Screening is an Ecostar patented technology, which uses a series of hexagonal or octagonal disc shafts to create a flatbed over which the waste material is pulled.
Thanks to the shape of these screening disks, as the material slides along the top of the bed it’s subjected to an ‘up and down’ motion that separates the waste into the different sized fractions. The screened material passes through the spaces in between the disks, leaving the oversize on top which moves to the end of the screening surface.
The shafts on which the disks are mounted have an inbuilt anti wrapping system. In between each disk on the shafts, there are loose sleeves made of a highly resistant material which are independent of the rotation of the shaft itself. The system does not allow the long and fibrous parts of the material being screened to twist around the shaft, minimising downtime.
This technology also allows for real-time changes to the predetermined screening size (±20%). This change can be made by varying the speed of the shafts with the aid of an inverter. The available screening sizes range from 10 to 350 mm.
Hexact is the screening machine with Dynamic Disc Screening technology and modular structure designed for those who require high performance, compact size and low power consumption.
Hextra is the ultra-efficient machine designed for those who require the operational flexibility of a mobile solution combined with the quality and precision of the exclusive dynamic disk screening technology.
Hextractor works in combination with Hexact. The hood is placed over the Hexact and extracts light plastic, leaves, and dust as the material flows over the modular screen. The extracted leaves and plastic are deposited, whilst the powders continue to the “cyclone”, where they settle. The result is perfectly separate and clean material.
