Vogelsang has taken the solid-liquid separation of liquid manure and digestate using a press screw separator and optimised the technology behind it.

Vogelsang has introduced the XSplit press screw separator which enables a dry matter content of up to 40% for liquid manure and digestate processing.

The XSplit helps biogas plant operators and contractors separate digestate and liquid manure for further use. Vogelsang has taken the solid-liquid separation of liquid manure and digestate using a press screw separator and optimised the technology behind it. The drive is located at the solids outlet rather than at the inflow of the raw medium. In contrast to conventional separators, liquid cannot get into the drive so a shaft seal is no longer required, which in turn reduces maintenance effort and costs.

A high-quality elastomer sealing disc, against which the press screw works in the separation area, ensures reliable plug formation, without extra aid and with almost zero initial leakage. The pressing area and thus the dry substance content can also be adjusted quickly and individually in just a few steps. With its optimised technology, the press screw separator from Vogelsang achieves a dry matter content in the solid fraction of up to 40%, making it capable of meeting a wide range of requirements relating to liquid manure and digestate processing.

Further information on the XSplit separator will be available at the Vogelsang booth at the BIOGAS Convention and Trade Fair (7-9 December 2021): Hall 9, Stand D28.
