TELFORD SMITH Sink Swim Tanks

Shredded or Granulated material is discharged into the front end of the SST and moved along the tank by a succession of motorised paddles.
For Automatic Separation of Non-Floating Materials such as Stones, Soil & Metal from Floating Plastic Materials

Shredded or Granulated material is discharged into the front end of the SST and moved along the tank by a succession of motorised paddles. The agitating action of the paddles pushes the material under the surface separating the floating material from the heavy contaminants, which sink to the bottom of the tank.

All paddles are equipped with independently controlled variable speed drives in order to optimise the separation process. Materials which sink to the base of the tank are continuously transported by a horizontal Auger to one end of the SST where they are removed from the tank by an inclined auger and discharged into a receptacle.
