Nihot Air Technologies

Nihot air technologies use controlled air to efficiently and reliably separate waste by its density characteristics.  These units are at the core of our patented MSW sorting process, and are used to liberate the lighter (and higher value) products from inert and contaminated materials.  When applied to C&D recycling, this technology can dramatically increase your recovery of smaller material fractions by providing two or three streams of highly concentrated products.

Available in multiple sizes and configurations, we can custom tailor a Nihot equipment package to your sorting needs.

BHS is the exclusive North American distributor of Nihot air separation technology.
