Vogelsang launches separator for processing of digestate and liquid manure

Vogelsang GmbH & Co. KG is launching an innovative press screw separator. The XSplit separator is easy to maintain and enables a dry matter content of up to 40 percent for liquid manure and digestate processing. “It’s becoming increasingly important to our customers to fully exploit digestate and liquid manure in the best and most efficient ways – whether as fertilizer for plant cultivation, as bedding, for soil improvement or for power generation in biogas plants. The separation technology rounds out our portfolio for even more efficient management of digestate and liquid manure,” says Harald Vogelsang, managing director Vogelsang GmbH & Co. KG.

The XSplit can be seen at the BIOGAS Trade Fair (December 7th-9th, 2021) in Nuremberg. Vogelsang has already demonstrated the XSplit to the agricultural specialist audience during its inhouse event held at the company’s headquarters in Essen earlier this month.

New drive arrangement reduces maintenance costs

The XSplit helps biogas plant operators and contractors to separate digestate and liquid manure for further use optimally. Vogelsang has taken up the tried and tested method of solid-liquid separation of liquid manure and digestate using a press screw separator and optimized the technology behind it: the drive is located at the solids outlet and not, as is customary on the market, at the inflow of the raw medium. In contrast to conventional separators, liquid cannot get into the drive. This means a shaft seal is no longer required, which in turn reduces maintenance effort and costs. Vogelsang’s QuickService concept also enables direct access to the screen and press screw for quick service.

Reliable plugging

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 optimized technology, the press screw separator from Vogelsang achieves a dry matter content in the solid fraction of up to 40 percent, making it capable of meeting a wide range of requirements relating to liquid manure and digestate processing. In developing the separator, the company also placed great emphasis on a very good cost-benefit ratio for the user.
