The SPIRALIFT SC washer compactor is an advanced machine that is primarily designed for the treatment of solids and waste materials, making it an integral part of waste management and processing systems. The process begins with the utilization of a rugged TASKMASTER® Screenings Grinder, a specialized mechanism engineered to reduce solid materials into smaller particles. This initial grinding phase facilitates the subsequent steps of washing and compacting by breaking down large and unwieldy materials. By efficiently resizing the waste, it enables a more effective and streamlined process, increasing overall system productivity.
As screenings drop into the SC hopper, they are washed by the upper spray nozzles and then ground by the TASKMASTER® shredder. Next, the SPIRALIFT SC intensively washes organics and flushes them back into the system. The screenings are then compacted in the unit’s press zone. Finally the processed screenings pass through a discharge pipe and are deposited into a bin, bag or conveyor — washed, ground and reduced in weight. The grinder and press technology, along with highly rugged construction, makes the SC uniquely effective.
The SPIRALIFT SC is provided complete with hopper, shredder, tank enclosure, solenoid valves, spray manifolds and controller. The PLC- based controller monitors and integrates the entire system. The SPIRALIFT SC is provided in several models: The SC1620 features a 10HP TASKMASTER shredder and a 3HP shaft mounted auger drive. It handles up to 175 ft3/hr of solids. The SC8520 features a 5HP grinder, 3HP auger drive for up to 50 ft3/hr of solids. Other sizes can be provided as well.
