BHS Polishing Screen

The BHS Polishing Screen is the industry’s most effective separator of fiber and containers. This unique screen creates three material fractions: Mixed Fiber, Containers and Fines by using the 2-D and 3-D characteristics of these materials.  Paper is conveyed over the screening surface, while containers and other three-dimensional objects roll off the back of the screen and are consolidated for sorting. The fine materials, consisting of bottle caps, dirt, grit and small fiber, fall through the screening surface and are removed from the material stream in order to limit product contamination.  Our 3-sort unit provides an extremely clean container stream, resulting in improved recovery of valuable containers and virtually no loss of fiber to residue.


  • Single piece of equipment to separate paper from containers – no air drum separator is necessary with a BHS Polishing Screen
  • Patented in-line discs virtually eliminate material wrapping, resulting in reduced downtime, enhanced safety and extended screening efficiency
  • Longest disc wear in the industry
