Tiger HS640 offers shredding, screening and depackaging functions for food waste and anaerobic digestion applications.
New from Doppstadt US, a division of Ecoverse Industries, based in Avon, Ohio, is the Tiger HS640 depackager, shredder and screener for food waste recycling and anaerobic digestion applications.
The Tiger HS640 offers three functions in one piece of equipment, the company says. According to Ecoverse, the machine can process solid and liquid fractions, and organic wastes can be processed as they are.
The company says the Tiger helps to mitigate feedstock contamination because it is capable of removing organic materials, such as food waste, from packaging containers.
Doppstadt says the machine is ideal for applications which require the processing of packaged organics, such as food waste. The equipment opens packaged organic materials, the company says, and efficiently separates organic content material from containers, for a contaminate-free feedstock introduction.
The unit is built to be versatile, allowing waste companies to accept a wide range of feedstocks, such as expired packaged food and drinks, and to generate revenue from materials that would otherwise be either too contaminated or impractical to accept, the company says.
Doppstadt says the Tiger depackager will be on display at the WasteExpo, set for April 29-May 1, 2014, in Atlanta.
