Technology Description:

The 2-Stage Separator is normally installed on a platform raised above a concrete dry pad. The wet fiber sliding off from the Screen is compressed between a 8 feet wide rubber roller and a stainless steel screen roller that allows remaining liquid to drain out. This process brings the solid output level to approximately 18% dry matter. The separated liquid is rejected through an 8" (203 mm) gravity discharge while fiber is stacked on the concrete pad underneath.
