Sachets & Pouches De-Packaging

 Tea from Tea Bag Separation


De-Packaging products from sachets and pouches by hand is slow, time consuming and un-economical. Shredding or crushing is not an efficient solution due to contamination of the recovered product. This resulted in the product requiring sifting further before being able to move on to the following process.


The Turbo Separator is designed to separate a wide range of packaging from its contents with up to 99% efficiency. The Turbo Separator separates the products using centrifugal force, air flow and mechanical action.

The paddles for separating sachets and pouches are larger than standard paddles and are designed so to split the packaging open and squeeze the contents out. This causes minimal damage to the packaging and generates higher air flow which increases separation efficiency. The Turbo Separator separates all sizes of sachets and pouches with either dry or wet contents.


The Turbo Separator Depackaging Machine is fitted with a variable speed drive to enhance efficiency. The system is capable of being mounted either indoor or outdoor.

The Turbo Separator is mounted on an access platform and includes controls housed in a floor mounted panel.
