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.

DDS windshifter producing high quality SRF

The customer, N+P Subcoal®, is more than pleased with the performance of the windshifter. The line is processing pre-separated C&I/MSW waste and the DDS windshifter adds value by protecting the secondary shredder, removing inert and creating high calorific value SRF (used in a kiln or boiler).

One DDS windshifter = three fractions

1 windshifter = 3 fractions The DDS windshifter is specifically designed to separate a waste stream into three fractions (heavy, mid-heavy and light) all done in one pass. It was originally designed for C&D and C&I recovery applications by separating the input into: stones, wood and RDF material.
