How our bulk star screens work
The star screen consists of several sections, the speed of each section can be set separately from each other. An additional advantage of the star sieve is that chunks of product are broken loose. The product enters the star sieve from above. Because the star sieve continues to rotate at a predetermined rate, the product is kept in continuous motion, resulting in automatic separation of particles. This falls through the stars and is the sieved fraction.
Use of our star screens
A star screen is mainly used for screening bulk material. Areas of application are compost, biomass, bark, wood chips and soil; mainly coarse and sticky products. The pitch between the stars and the number of fingers of the star determine the fraction that is sieved out. In addition, the fraction and the screening capacity can be influenced by adjusting the rotational speed.
Advantages of our star screens
The star screen offers several advantages:
- High screening capacity in a small area;
- Suitable for very sticky products;
- Can be built into existing production processes;
- Different star types available;
- Different sieve configurations available;
- Product-specific adjustments possible.

What our customers have to say
‘We were looking for a dosing system that could fill containers with clay and also ensure an even distribution. When emptying the containers, we are now able to deliver a good mixture of the ground clay to the factory. Thanks to ARCO’s dosing system, there are far fewer fluctuations in the clay, which in turn improves the quality.’
