Sparta’s Self-Cleaning OCC Screen is an innovative screen designed specially to defy the wrapping that plagues traditional OCC screens. Its specially shaped and sized steel discs optimize the separation of the larger OCC (cardboard) from the smaller paper, film and mixed recyclables. And its unique, bi-directional corkscrew motion defies the wrapping (and associated maintenance & cleanup) that plagues traditional OCC screens. The result – increased uptime, production, and recovery efficiency!
Its innovative, patent-pending screw style design conveniently directs the cleaned up, larger OCC off the end of the screen, allowing Sparta’s Self-Cleaning OCC screen to readily replace recyclers’ standard dual and triple deck OCC screens (with no changes needed to infeed or takeaway conveyors). ‘If you find yourselves spending 1-2 hours per day cutting tightly wrapping film plastic and more off your OCC screen’s shafts, it’s time to stop banging your head against the wall,’ says Rutger Zweers, Sparta VP of Sales Engineering and single stream specialist. ‘Spend your time producing, not cleaning.’
