hamos RSS - Elastomer Separators

Separation of elastomers from plastics

The hamos RSS elastomer separator is used for the dry separation of rubber and other elastomers from plastic regrind. The hamos RSS was developed to produce high-quality plastic regrinds such as PP, PS and ABS as a largely rubber-free fraction by dry means.

Requirements for your material

In order to achieve an optimum separation result with the hamos RSS, the plastic mixtures to be separated must be as follows:

  • Dry plastics
  • Particle size 2 mm to 10 mm
  • Dedusted material (fine dusts should be separated)
  • Maximum moisture less than 0.5

You are not sure whether your material is suitable for separation with the hamos RSS? Talk to our experts. We will be happy to carry out a separation test in our technical center to investigate the separability of your material.

Based on our test report, which we carry out with your materials on the basis of the separation results, we offer you equipment and systems specially tailored to your needs.

Operating principle

The plastic mixture contaminated with rubber should be dust-free, dry and smaller than 10 mm to achieve an optimum separation result. The contaminated plastic fraction is collected in a silo, for example, and conveyed to the supply hopper of the elastomer separator. In the hamos RSS separator, almost all elastomers that occur are now separated. The result is a clean, practically rubber-free plastic regrind that can be transported away, e.g. by a screw conveyor, and filled into big bags. Thanks to optimized machine settings, the hamos RRS also produces a highly concentrated rubber fraction.

Your advantages

  • Clean, rubber-free plastics
  • Dry separation process
  • High output
  • Low loss of good material
  • Concentrated elastomer waste
  • Fully automatic function
  • Low energy consumption
  • High efficiency


If, for example, you are processing from recycling electronic scrap or the shredder light fraction, then the hamos RSS is the ideal device for separating impurities from rubber or other elastomers.

Professionals work with professionals

After 21 years of operation, our experience with the hamos WRS window recycling plant is very positive. The plant is an important part of our process. It helps us to achieve our targets. It guarantees the highest quality required for the PVC and thus increases the overall performance of our process. The hamos plant is indispensable and "closes our recycling loop."

- Bodo Streubel, Operations Manager of Dekura Bad Schmiedeberg

We are very satisfied with the standard hamos GmbH has achieved. Previously, it was not possible to sort PVC from profile sections and production remnants fully automatically to this high standard of quality and purity. This development has helped us to completely close the material loop in window profile production. A new world-class standard was born.

- Jörg Ipfling, Manager Recycling Technology Window Solutions at Rehau

The electrostatic recycling systems of HAMOS make a very important contribution to the recycling process of PVC windows due to their good separation performance.

- ppa. S. Lengnick, Production Management, VEKA Umwelttechnik GmbH

The separation systems supplied by hamos are an essential part of ensuring the highest quality of products supplied by Metal-Plast to the market. By using hamos solutions we have increased the processing capacity of our plant and the products manufactured by Metal-Plast are of the highest quality.
