SAVECO/Enviro-Care SEPCOM Vertical Screw Separator

The SEPCOM Vertical Screw Separator from SAVECO/Enviro-Care was engineered to dewater liquid/solid mixtures in which the ratio of liquid to solid fluctuates dramatically. The design includes two vertical screws manufactured from SINT-engineered polymers. This separator ensures there is no clogging or loss of plug during operation. Separation is performed by a flexible combination of gravity and mechanical compression. This flexibility allows the machine to separate the liquid phase from the solid phase of a wide range of materials where the percentage of the liquid inside the solids may be constantly changing. 815-636-8306;; Booth 4309

Sealing Systems Flex-Seal 2.0
