The Ecohog Windshifter is versatile and effective in a wide range of applications. Our customised precision settings and ability to provide or integrate any necessary auxiliaries allow us to advise and work with customers to ensure the optimum results. On the basis of our knowledge, extensive industry experience and ongoing investment in research and development we strive to offer the best Ecohog configuration to every customer in their specific area of application. Examples of typical input material in main application areas are demonstrated below. Ecohog output following processing is demonstrated on our video page. If your application differs from those demonstrated, please do not hesitate to get in touch so we can advise on suitability.



In RDF / SRF applications Ecohog Windshifters are used to protect shredders by removing all heavy product e.g. stainless steel, brick, ceramics etc. The clean product can be used or go on for further processing depending on the fuel application.

The Ecohog Windshifter can provide the solution to cleaning up oversized compost by separating contaminants, stone and wood from compost oversize. The cleaned wood can also move on to shredding for use as biomass.

MRF Separation


EcohogWindshifters and HogMag Eddy Current Separators can be used in many parts of the Mixed Dry Recyclables processing cycle, for example separating: glass from paper, plastic from paper, paper from cardboard and metals from any MRF products.

C&D / C&I

EcohogWindshifters are typically used in conjunction with different types of screens to efficiently separate different fraction sizes. The HogMag Eddy Current Separator can be used to recover the valuable metals in this process.



Ecohog Windshifter technology is used in plastics recovery systems to reduce and eliminate non plastics contaminates and in some cases unwanted plastics.



In Incinerator Ash Clean up, EcohogWindshifters are used in conjunction with screening equipment; the screen removes the fines fraction and the oversize is fed to the Ecohog and light fraction is then separated from the heavy. The heavy material is typically made up of metals and aggregate that can then be further separated with ease.These materials then go to the HogMag for removal of ferrous and nonferrous metals. The remaining product can be sent for further processing.

Recycled Wood

The HogMag is used in this scenario to remove the metals. Ferrous and Non-ferrous metals must be removed prior to burning as the metal swill damages the grates in the burner causing downtime and associated costs. Higher quality recycled woodchip is required for biomass fuel.
