Komptech Primus Core Features

1 Easy Feeding

Steep side walls in the large 4 yd3 hopper prevent materials from bridging during infeed, allowing consistent flow, even with wet material.

2 Clean Screening

A freely revolving circular brush cleans the screen drum. The position opposite the screen side presents no risk of contamination by the screen material.

3 Efficiently Driven

With its efficient 70 hp Perkins diesel engine, the Primus can also be equipped with a grizzly or wind sifter option for light film plastic removal requirements.

4 User Friendly Access

The Primus side door opens so operators have quick and easy access for cleaning and drum changing.
