Since then substantial improvements - with focus
on efficiency, reliability and minimal maintenance - has been

The weed cathers are designed and supplied according to the
factory capacity and are available
in many sizes.
We typically recommend 2 types of weed catcher, which are
installed in continuation of each other. The one called "Type
4H" is equipped with 4 set of catch arms and is installed as the
first in the process followed by a another weed catcher "Type
6H" with 6 catch arms. The Type 4H separator catches the main
part of the grass, weed, plant stalks etc. in the water. The
catch arms on the 6H weed cather, which has a longer residence
time in the float channel, catches the remaining parts.
advantage of this method is minimizing the risk, that the first
separator is overburdened. In that case, the trash materiel on
the potentially overfilled catch arms falls back in the water
causing difficulties in the slicer.
In order to further improve the efficiency of the separation
process we recommend to install a compressed air lifting system.
This lifts the trash from the bottom of the float channel into
the catch arms thus removing the trash which the arms cannot
Some of the many advantages
of using our weed catchers:
The catch arms are mounted in durable and movable rubber
gaskets. These gaskets are fastened in a conveyor i.e. no
chains and axes that needs maintenance. The rubber gaskets
are water proof, especially salt water.
The weed catcher generates no noise emissions.
The weed catcher is designed for working at temperatures
below freezing without problems.
