Nihot - Drum Separator

In waste processing, controlled air is a great separation method, both in terms of technology and as a business solution. By using air, materials can be separated based on both material density and shape.

The Drum Separator is a combination of a recirculation fan, a separation section with a rotating drum and a connecting expansion chamber. It is the best separating solution based on the density of the material at capacities up to 100 tonnes/hr of input and up to 25 tonnes/hr of separated light fraction.

Nihot offers both single drum separator, capable of separating waste into two fractions (lights and heavies), and a double drum separator which is capable of splitting the waste into three fractions (lights, mids and heavies).


  • MSW (Municipal Solid Waste)
  • C&I (Commercial and Industrial) Waste
  • C&D (Construction and Demolition) Waste
  • Compost
  • WEEE (Waste from Electrical and Electronic Equipment)
  • Biomass / Wood Recycling
  • RDF (Refuse Derived Fuel)
  • Incinerator Bottom Ash
  • Glass

Key Features

  • Versatile: Processes many different waste streams, including high moisture content input. 
  • Control: Gives control of the caloric value of the output
  • Protection: Removes interferants from the input material, thus protecting the granulators in RDF production. 
  • Low Maintenance: Low maintenance and few wear parts i.e. reduced downtime. 
  • Large Fractions: Can handle large fraction sizes (plastics and foils)
  • Low Dust Emissions
