Overbelt suction

Use and application

Overbelt suction is used in sorting cabins by waste management companies where employees manually remove films from the overall mass flow. Previously, shafts at every sorting workstation were used to transport the films away.

The overbelt suction allows employees to feed the sorted films into the extraction fan above the workstation.

The films are fed into the light fraction separator via a pipeline system where they are separated.

The system operates using recirculating air so that the airflow in the sorting cabin is not affected.

Benefits of the overbelt suction:

  • Easily retrofitted
  • Optimal workflows
