Film Vacuum System

In sorting cabins where manual sorting takes place, Nihot offers a series of very flexible and effective extra collection points for taking out film and foils from waste streams. The Film Vacuum System (FVS) is a combination of one or more suction points above a sorting belt, a recirculation fan and a Rotary Air Separator (RAS).

The FVS consists of one or more suction points, a re-circulation fan, and a material/air separator. The complete systems works in a closed loop. This means that the air which is used to suck the material is 100% brought back into the system. The FVS can be easily installed in existing sorting cabins.

Principle separating process

The material which is (manually) brought to the suction point, is sucked into suction hood and pneumatically conveyed to a RAS where the material is dropped pressure less onto a conveyor belt or storage bay.

Joined forces, Nihot’s DRS disc screens and SDX windshifters operational in an installation in Thailand!

Nihot supplied 2x DRS disc screens for removing <70 mm organics from MSW waste. The overs (70-200 mm) of both screens are the input to 2x SDX windshifter for removing inert material for the protection of the secondary shredder (reducing OPEX) and creating RDF with a high calorific value.

Several images of two of our SDi windshifters within in a new industrial waste sorting line in France!

Both windshifters are extracting the light fraction (textiles, plastics, cardboard, etc.) for creating a clean heavy fraction (stones, wood, glass, etc.) on a small and on a medium fraction size. Special thanks to AKTID! The Nihot windshifters are characterized by using negative pressure (aspiration)
