WSV & WSZ windshifter

The WSV and WSZ windshifters are the ideal solution for removing light fractions from liberated and densified input materials, with a high separation efficiency of up to 99%.

Would you like to know which solution suits your requirements best, please contact us.

WSV principle separating process

The windshifter is a combination of a recirculation fan, a separation unit (the actual windshifter), and either a Rotary Air Separator (RAS) or Cyclone. This configuration is individually designed and ideal for any operation, especially in tight spaces and in retrofits. As an alternative to a Rotary Air Separators (RAS) we offer a complete range of Cyclones for fraction sizes from 0-20 mm.The picture below shows the operating principle of the WSV. The shifter unit of the WSV windshifter has a vertical design. In the vertical separation unit, the heavy materials are separated from the light materials.

WSZ principle separating process

The shifter unit of the WSZ windshifter is of a zigzag-type design. In the zigzag separation unit, the heavy materials are separated from the light materials.

Successful trip to South Korea again for commissioning our SDS windshifter in an RDF production line.

The SDS 1400 windshifter is removing inert material from C&I waste for the protection of the secondary shredder (reducing OPEX) and creating RDF with a high calorific value. The windshifter is processing a 15-300 mm fraction size. Nihot windshifters are characterized by using negative pressure (aspiration)

Returning French customer with multiple Nihot windshifters with yet another operational SDi windshifter in ASR (zurik) waste!

We have recently supplied an SDi 800 windshifter for removing plastics and fluff (light fraction) for creating a clean zurik (heavy) fraction. The windshifter is processing a 13-40 mm fraction size. The Nihot windshifters are characterized by using negative pressure (aspiration) to separate waste into a heavy and light fraction.
