Machine type:



Designed to process materials more efficiently resulting in higher yield recover rates.

The Zig-A-Flow aspirator is designed to divide the stream of materials into two groups so they can be processed accordingly within the same system. Using an air flow technique, the Zig-A-Flow separates the lightweight material from the heavier material; lights are vacuumed upwards allowing the heavies to fall to the bottom. The benefit of separating the materials by weight allows them to be processed through the method that best prepares them for separation. This results in a higher yield recovery rate.

Our History

It all started with an imported gang saw. After WWII, three brothers from Germany migrated to the United States and built a sawmill on Galls Creek in Gold Hill, Oregon. Dissatisfied with the imported gang saw they were using, they decided they could make a better saw themselves.
