Sparta Manufacturing launches non-wrap OCC screen for single-stream and commercial recyclers
Sparta Manufacturing has launched its non-wrap OCC screen for single stream and commercial recyclers.
Its specially shaped and sized steel discs optimize the separation of the larger OCC (cardboard) from the smaller paper, film and mixed recyclables. Its unique, bi-directional corkscrew motion defies the wrapping (and associated maintenance and cleanup) that plagues traditional OCC screens. This results in increased uptime, production, and recovery efficiency.
Its screw style design conveniently directs the cleaned up, larger OCC off the end of the screen, allowing Sparta's non-wrap OCC screen to readily replace recyclers' standard, dual and triple-deck OCC screens (with no changes needed to infeed or takeaway conveyors).
"If you find yourselves spending 1 to 2 hours per day cutting tightly wrapped film plastic and more off your OCC screen's shafts, it's time to stop banging your head against the wall," says Rutger Zweers, Sparta VP of Sales Engineering and single stream specialist. "Spend your time producing, not cleaning."
