Apex Machine: Solution for Recycled Product Recovery Showcased at RWM
12/08/2013

Rotex Europe’s Apex Dry Separation Screeners are an ideal and effective solution to any recycling processing line.  Rotex Europe will be exhibiting and demonstrating the screening technology of the Apex machine at the 2013 RWM 10-12 September.

The Apex is designed for efficient performance, reduced downtime within the processing line, with quick and easy maintenance and cleaning. At RWM, application experts will be on hand to demonstrate how the lower operating costs together with the higher levels of productivity can give a return on investment in as little as 10 months.

Apex Screeners feature Gyratory Reciprocating Motion which has been proven time and again to increase quality product yield, with less reject of good material.  The Gyratory Reciprocating Motion has three separate and distinct motions beginning with a circular motion at the feed end.  This motion spreads the material across the full width of the screen surface, while stratifying the material.  The second type of motion is elliptical, which promotes stratification of material while conveying at a high capacity. Finally, the material is discharged through straight line motion which removes near size particles, and with no vertical component to the action, the material remains in constant contact with screen surface throughout the entire process. 

By utilising precise screen openings along with Gyratory Reciprocating Motion, Rotex screeners can remove a specific size range of particles with greater accuracy and efficiency. In addition to innovative screening motion, Rotex’s Apex Dry Separation Screeners offers ergonomically-designed performance and service features. A single operator can complete all screen inspections quickly and easily. Weighing just 2.26 kgs, each screen panel can be changed in 80% less time than other competitive models.

The Apex Separation Screeners are ideal for dry separations of a wide variety of recycling application types including bakery waste, crushed glass, ground PET bottles, wood, clay/non-metallic minerals, plastic regrind, and more.  Constructed from high quality, corrosion resistant stainless steel, Rotex screeners are built to last.

At RWM, Rotex Europe will have a team of expert engineers at stand 19W48 to offer advice about screening technologies and solutions for the recycling and waste management industry.
