Bulk material separation and screening

Material separation and screening solutions are designed for size control and removal of unwanted particles from the bulk material. The size of the screening station is dependent on the needed capacity of the material flow.

Laitex’s tailored material separation and screening solutions are designed to ensure low maintenance need and cost-efficient operation. Our standard biofuel screening station includes screening and crushing of oversized materials and separation of ferrous metals. Optionally separation of non-ferrous metals can be included.
