Fiber Compactor FKA/FKC

Fiber Compactor FKA/FKC

Separating and compacting units
for textile, paper and plastic waste

Functional Description

The particle-loaded air stream enters at the top of the housing through the tangential inlet, flows through the perforated cone and is discharged through the outlet. The collected material and waste is deposited on the inside of the perforated cone. From there the material is continuously scraped off and compacted by a plug screw.

The pre-compacted material is pressed against a diaphragm at the bottom outlet opening. This continuous process compacts the material and pushes the diaphragm open. The material is discharged into a suitable container or bag. This continuous operation of the units prevents fluctuations in the extraction system.

Fiber Compactor

The separating and compacting units of type FKA/FKC are perfectly suitable for paper residue, edge strips, foil shreds and different shredded plastics. The solid particles are extracted from the production process by suction, separated from the air stream and deposited in bags, containers or silos.
