Inline macerator reduces solids and fibers in pumped products. Macerator design is described below:
1 - geared motor; 2 - screen and knife 3 - housing 4 - heavy material removal outlet
Product features: - Has an integrated heavy materials separator - Maceration could be controlled by the different screens free passages - Easy to replace screen and knife - Installed power varies from 2.2 to 5.5 kW - Flow rate is in range: 2m3/h – 50m3/h, depending on solids content and input fibers size.
See below the photo of the substrate before and after processing by the macerator
Let's summarize. What do the macerator do? - Decreases the substrate viscosity and energy consumption for mixing & pumping; - Protects the downstream equipment from clogging; - Separates heavy solids (stones, metals, etc.); - Prepares substrate for the main processing by the Feedstock Pretreatment Module
