DDS windshifter

The Nihot DDS windshifter (Double Drum Separator) is the ideal solution for a three-way and high-volume separation. The DDS has two separating sections, this unique separating solutions separates the input into three fractions:

  • heavy
  • mid-heavy
  • light

The DDS windshifter is especially capable of processing e.g.:

  • High moisture content
  • Abrasive materials (glass, inert, car scrap, etc.)
  • A high volume percentage of light materials (plastics and film)
  • A relative sharp density distrubution of substreams is required.
