Is "centerflow drum screen" used outside this company? What's an alternative?

Is "centerflow drum screen" used outside this company? What's an alternative?

I'm looking for a name for this machine:

However, it seems the term "centerflow drum screen" is only used by this company (and one partner). How should I call the device in a document if I don't want to commit to this supplier yet?

RE: Is "centerflow drum screen" used outside this company? What's an alternative?

From WIKI:
A trommel (from the German word for drum, Trommel)[citation needed] is a screened cylinder used to separate materials by size - for example, separating the biodegradable fraction of mixed municipal waste or separating different sizes of crushed stone.

Portable trommels (also called portable trommel screens) are often used in the production of organic products from various types of waste.

For example, excavation contractors may screen their site debris into two fractions; a saleable topsoil for farms, nurseries and site-work, as well as cleaned rock for aggregates or landscaping work. This allows the contractor to resell their waste, instead of incurring the cost of sending it for disposal.

The same principle applies to the production of compost, sand/gravel, lumber mill by-products and municipal waste.
