nihot sds 650-iAmsterdam-based Nihot Recycling Technology has announced an update to its single drum separator (SDS) product line with the release of the i-Series.

The line will initially be available in two sizes, the SDS 650-i and SDS 800-i. Both are described as self-contained, plug-and-play units that use negative pressure to separate materials based on density and shape. Nihot and its parent company Bulk Handling Systems (BHS), Eugene, Ore., report that an SDS 650-i will be on display at Waste Expo, which begins April 28, 2014, in Atlanta.

According to Nihot, the SDS i-Series features numerous improvements over previous models, most notably improved separation results and straightforward adjustability.

“We listened to our customers,” says Nihot Sales Manager Joep Barenbrug. “Whereas the previous model required some labor to adjust settings, operators can now make adjustments easily and while in operation. The i-Series features a self-supporting frame and in-line design that enables it to fit in a single shipping container. It will show up fully assembled and ready to perform at a high level.”

Other improvements, Nihot says, include a longer expansion chamber and blow-nozzle for more consistent separation and adjustability, more robust components in a modular design, integrated return ducting and dust collection and an improved look and feel.

“This machine is lighter yet more durable, and features increased adjustability and mobility. Our team has taken an industry-leading offering and improved upon it. We’re all quite proud and excited to bring this equipment to market and to show it off at Waste Expo,” says Nihot General Manager Huig van der Meij.

Nihot says its SDS line is known for precise, tunable density separation using negative pressure. The units are designed to be “plug-and-play,” the company says, and offer contained dust collection and low maintenance requirements.

The SDS 650-i and SDS 800-i can be used in a number of applications, the company adds, including construction and demolition (C&D), single stream glass cleanup, municipal solid waste (MSW), commercial and industrial (C&I), Auto Shred Residue (ASR), E-Waste (WEEE), Compost, Biomass, Metals and Incinerator Ash, among others.
