SPS122T Tracked Picking Station

The Screenpod SPS-122T picking station is a mobile material separation machine, providing an all-encompassing platform from which numerous different types of waste can be extracted from a given material stream around any number of sites across a vast range of applications, all from the safety of the on-board, air-conditioned cabin.

How it Works:

Stage 1: Material is fed into the inlet chute of the machine via a conveyor.

Stage 2: As the material falls through inlet chute, it is subject to a blast of air from an air-knife, which blows any lightweight material, or ‘lights’ out of the waste stream. The ‘lights’ are then blown through an outlet chute, where they can be collected.

Stage 3: Following the air-knife, the material falls onto the main picking conveyor belt, and passes into the cabin.

Stage 4: The cabin has 2 bays and 4 discharge points, each of which has an assigned operator. Each operator is designated a particular waste type to look out for. As the material passes through the cabin, they look out for any of their designated material in the waste stream, and as they see it, they’ll remove it by hand and deposit it into their respective discharge chute, thus separating it from the waste stream.

Stage 5: As the material moves out of the cabin, it passes under a vacuum head. Any ‘lights’ still in the material stream get sucked up through the vacuum head, getting blown out to the side of the machine through a hose, where it can be collected.

Stage 6: After the vacuum head, the remaining material falls onto the discharge conveyor, where it passes under an overband magnet. The magnet attracts any ferrous metal to it, pulling it up and out of the waste stream, discharging it to the side.

Stage 7: Any remaining material on the belt will be deposited out the end of the discharge conveyor, where it can be collected or processed further.
