Press screw separator XSplit by Vogelsang

Innovative concept for low-maintenance separation

  • High dry matter content of up to 40% possible
  • Variation of the dry matter content due to adjustable pressing area
  • Easy access to sieve and screw for quick service
  • Reliable plug formation without auxiliary agents
  • Ideal separation results due to high-quality elastomer sealing disc


Reliable and economical separation

The innovative press screw separator XSplit offers an effective way to optimally prepare suspensions such as digestate, slurry or sludge for further use. The proven concept of the press screw separator for solid-liquid separation has been technically redesigned and optimized. The drive of the XSplit is located at the solids outlet – this prevents liquid from entering the drive. Thanks to the high-quality elastomer sealing disc, the XSplit automatically forms a reliable plug during start-up, no auxiliary agents are required. The sieve basket impresses with its segmented design. Individual sieve elements can be replaced quickly and easily. In this way, it can be individually adapted to the medium and the entire sieve basket does not have to be replaced immediately in the event of wear in the front area.

Service and maintenance of the XSplit separator

Thanks to the Vogelsang QuickService concept and the novel design, the XSplit Separator convinces with a uniquely easy access to all essential parts. Four 6" cleaning ports and the large end cover provide very good access to the interior of the XSplit. This significantly reduces the time required for service and maintenance work. The end cover is removed in just a few steps, giving free access to the sieve basket and press screw. They can be removed easily without time-consuming work steps and the sealing sleeve can also be replaced.

Features of the XSplit

The inlet nozzle, like the filtrate nozzle, can be rotated in 90° increments and can be mounted both at the top and at the bottom in a connector size of 6". This allows flexible adaptation to the respective situation on site.
The screw of the XSplit press screw separator is made of stainless steel and specially armored for extra durability. Fiber pockets are integrated for self-cleaning.
The wear-resistant elastomer closure disc ensures automatic plug formation without the use of additional auxiliary agents.
The drive motor is located on the solid side and thus has no contact with the liquid during the separation. The conveying and separation direction is towards the drive. Therefore, the XSplit does not require an extra mechanical seal or radial shaft seal.
The length of the pressing area can be adjusted by means of a threaded spindle. A longer pressing area means higher dry matter content of the solid phase.
The sieve basket of the XSplit separator consists of three sieve elements. These are individually replaceable and enable optimum service performance and individual adaptation to the output medium.
The generous end cover provides easy access to the sieve and screw. In addition, four 6" cleaning ports provide good access to the interior of the XSplit. Service and maintenance work is completed quickly.

Options of the XSplit

With the stud frame, the XSplit is easily and quickly elevated. Pumps and, if necessary, a shredder can also be assembled on the base frame, so that the installation effort on site is reduced.
Compact unit including pump, optional shredder and the XSplit separator, which is folded out and positioned in an elevated position by means of hydraulics. Completely pre-assembled including static calculation, the basic hoisting gear is the ideal solution for changing locations.
Drive up, set up, connect, get started. Assembled on a trailer, the hoisting gear pro complete solution is the flexible variant for inter-company use. All components including hydraulics are fully assembled and connected to the controller. A generously dimensioned projection and ejection height make it possible, for example, to separate directly on high trailers.
Depending on the customer's requirements, we offer the necessary control technology for manual operation of the individual components up to control with touch panel and intuitive user interface.

Separation rethought
Separator XSplit

In the development of the new XSplit separator, Vogelsang has technically rethought the proven functional concept of the press screw separators. Based on this, the XSplit convinces with a very good cost-benefit ratio. This allows high throughput rates of up to 50 m3/h. On the other hand, the new concept allows dry matter content of up to 40 percent and is therefore superior to other press screw separators.
