About the T42 Turbo Separator

T42 is the flagship of de-packaging systems for pre-consumer food waste streams. It has the ability to process from 10-30 ton per hour depending on the products. The horizontal shaft has 56 flat paddles that work together to split, separate, and convey.

The organics are collected and either conveyed or pumped to their holding location. The inorganics are also collected and conveyed to a roll off container or compactor.

The system can process and separate

  • Cased products you hold in two hands/up to 5-gallon pails

  • Pallets of wet or dry cased goods

  • Large plastic of kraft paper bags of pet food, salt, bakery

  • All forms of packaging (except glass…smashes it to smithereens)

Why choose a T42?

For those sites that are processing mostly pre-consumer food waste and some restaurant and grocery waste. The 42” [1067mm] processing diameter allows you to process large, 55 gallons [208L] plastic bags; double-walled boxes; and more

Systems come standard with

  • 75 HP TEFC motor 3ph
