Country of origin: Germany

Technical Specification

Typical applications include:

  • Plastic packaging
  • Tins
  • Glass  

Operating principle: The food waste depackaging equipment comprises a feed hopper, 2 screw conveyors, 2 shredders and a separating screen. The feed material is conveyed from the feed hopper to the first shredder where the material is reduced to a size chosen by the client. The material is then conveyed to a second shredder, further reducing its size for the subsequent separation process. The elevated solid/liquid screw conveyor comprises an inner and an outer working area separated by a mesh screen. The incoming material is sprayed with water whilst being transported upwards. The liquidised food waste runs back down into a hopper, the solid waste is transported upwards and discharged at the top into a container.

Available models: One model built to size

Telephone: +49/2421/801-104

web: www.kufferath.com

Contact person:Birgit Schmauss - schmauss@kufferath.com

Country of origin: Germany

Technical Specification

Typical applications include:

  • Mixed supermarket waste
  • Liquid and pasty foodstuffs in cans
  • Tetra-Pack products
  • Beverages in PET bottles
  • Tinned packaging
  • Dairy and ice cream products

Operating principle: The material to be unpacked is fed to the screw press via filter chute and transported by the screw towards the outlet of the press. The conical outlet remains closed until the internal pressure exceeds the working pressure. The working pressure is set pneumatically. The internal pressure is built up by the screw during depackaging. The screw shaft is enclosed in a screen basket. The internal pressure drives the free liquids/ pasty stuff of the treated material through the perforated screen discharging the separated foodstuff into a hopper beneath the screen. Packaging is retained and discharged via the exit at the far side of the press.

Contact person: Trevor Roberts          

Email: trevor.roberts@mewa-recycling.de

Country of origin: German Built – Sales office in the UK         

Technical Specification

Typical applications include: 

  • Mixed Food Waste
  • Packed food waste
  • Unpacked food waste
  • Slaughter house waste
  • Food waste and Green waste mixed
  • Energy Crops 

Operating principle: The operating principle of the machine is to accelerate the material within the chamber which results in one material hitting another, thus releasing contents from the packing. This process involves no cutting just acceleration resulting in low operating costs.

The materials can be feed via grab or conveyor into the core machine dependant upon the feedstock; the material is batch processed for just a few seconds and is then emptied from the machine automatically via a discharge door. The packaging and contraries are then removed using a number of specialist systems.

The processed organic fraction due to the action of the machine is completely broken down with maximum surface area thus increasing the yield in the Anaerobic Digesters. 

Available models: QZ900, QZ1200, QZ1600

Throughput capacity (m3/h):  4 – 20 tonnes per hour

Separation efficiency (%):   Up to 99% dependant upon the down stream

Speed (rpm):  Circa 400 rpm dependant on motor size etc.

Power requirements (kW):      60kW to 120kW

Dimensions (mm): Circa 5 x 5 meters without infeed

Base package includes: Machine, Control Panel, Cooling System

Fabrication: Heavy Tool Steel

Layout: Please contact for drawings, infeed and separation options

Anticipated delivery time: Circa 16 weeks

Guarantees provided by the supplier: 2000 operating hours or 12 months

Price range: 150k Euros upwards dependant upon ancillaries and options; annual operating costs for maintenance and consumables (%); less than 1% of the purchase cost.

References: Many in Germany and Austria processing Biomass fractions, 15 QZ’s operating in the UK processing other materials.

Estimated Maintenance cost £/a or % of purchase price: Minimal - the machine was originally designed to process metal fractions so resistant to unshredables etc. Will not be affected by cans etc.

Required service Intervals (monthly or annually): Fill the automatic greasing; check acceleration tools

Technical Specification

Typical applications include: The installation removes foods from their packaging. This unpacking technology handles both cans and plastic packs. 

Operating principle: The unpacking installation consists of two stages. The packaging is opened and pressed flat in a continuous operation during the first stage. The pressed out contents is conducted via a product line from the side of the installation.The package material is cleaned in the second stage. The residues are rinsed off with water nozzles in a sieve drum. The rinsing water is recirculated to keep water consumption as low as possible.
