Excellent separation of kernels and granular products.
The Cimbria Gravity Separator is used for the separation of any kinds of kernels and granular products of almost identical size. The Gravity Separator is utilized when the limits of air-aspiration-systems as well as screening are reached. However, the Gravity Separator does no substitute those foregoing sorting steps, but it is an additional piece of equipment for separating more exactly according to the specific weight.
The product processed by the Gravity Separator is separated into layers with different specific weight according to the “fluid bed” principle. The deck is fluidized by a completely uniform pressurized air system stratifying the light material to the top of the product bed and allowing the heavy material to contact the deck surface. The deck is inclined from side to side and inlet end to discharge end at adjustable angles.
The deck itself is powered by a fully balanced eccentric drive, which moves the deck at low amplitude and high frequency up hill. The heavy material contacting a specially designed square wire deck surface moves up hill, while the light material fluidized by the air system moves down hill due to gravitational pull.
The patented and unique counterbalancing system in the eccentric drive prevents transmission of any vibrations to the building or steel platform, thus saving installation costs.
Further, the Cimbria gravity separators are famous and accepted as the absolute No. 1 on the world market due to their distinguished air distribution system, empirically developed and permanently enhanced over decades by our experienced R&;D engineers.
Standard feeding and aspiration systems grant 100% uniform operation combined with dust free working area.
The Cimbria Gravity Separator has a capacity up to 20 t/h depending on model and product being separated.
