With its impressive dimensions of 3.6 x 0.9 and a height of 1.3 m up to the inlet, the PSS 8 separator, developed for continuous operation on large farms, is an extremely robust machine. The proven FAN press screw concept has been retained while the components have been enlarged: The 2200 mm long and 350 kg heavy auger is additionally supported by a head bearing. With a diameter of 400mm, the sieve is also generously sized. The built-in auger is driven by a 30 kW electric motor running at 400V/50Hz. This ensures worldwide use for different applications.
With cattle manure with a dry matter content of 7 to 9%, the PSS 8 achieves a throughput of up to 65 m³ per hour. The dryness of the solid obtained can be varied by the number and position of counterweights using a patented output regulator. The user can trust on constant output and a high-quality pressing result: the dry matter content, once set, remains unchanged throughout the entire period of use. Up to 36% dry matter content in the solids can be achieved consistently with the PSS 8. It is possible to use sieve baskets with five different gap widths from 0.25 to 1.00 mm.
Like the entire FAN product range, the PSS 8 is also built from carefully selected materials. The screw features wear-resistant reinforcement, and all parts that come into contact with the medium are made of stainless steel. This ensures an exceptionally long lifespan for the machine. Thanks to the floating sieve bearing and the associated continuous cleaning of the sieve by the screw, the PSS 8 remains almost wear-free even over long operating periods. A swivelling press head on the sieve housing makes maintenance easy.
With its large dimensions and increased throughput, a single PSS 8 can replace two or more smaller machines. Energy costs, space usage and labour in connection with operating the necessary peripheral equipment, such as pump stations, are all reduced. This saves time and money, decreases the environmental footprint and makes the PSS 8 an important ambassador for a green future.
