Air Dirt Separator

The waste stream is blown by wind and air in the air dirt separator system, which subsequently employs gravity to separate the trash. As a trash sorting machine, A conveyor transports a waste stream to the pneumatic air dirt separator, where heavy wastes with solid shapes (such as glass bottles and plastics) are delivered directly to the air dirt separator's bottom. Plastic and glass bottles are the first to fall, then light wastes like film and paper are blown away by the air and dirt separator from the air flow and land on the end conveyor for separation. The air flows through the air and dirt separator as the cyclone collects the dust.

Air and Dirt Separator Technical Advantages

  • This device, which is primarily made up of a material conveying system and a blower system, has a simple structure, a good operating effect, and is simple to maintain.

  • To achieve the desired wind sorting effect, the feeding conveyor angle and air nozzle angle can be adjusted, and the feeding angle and nozzle angle can be flexibly modified according to the material composition.

  • The separation chamber's inlet and outlet, as well as the distance between the drum and the discharge channel, are all adjustable, allowing for flexible air separation distance adjustment between the air dirt separator and the rotating drum.

  • The light and heavy materials are separated and sorted aerodynamically, with the heavier component being transferred to a storage bin or discharge belt before passing through the drum through the dumping channel. The lighter material is blown through the separating drum, sucked into the settling chamber, and released.

How Does an Air Separator Work

How Does an Air Separator Work

The feeding conveyor, rotating drum, blower, heavy material conveyor belt, settling chamber, and light material conveyor belt are the primary structural components of the Hengchuang air compressor separator. According to the principle of aerodynamics, controlled airflow as a sorting medium, under the action of controlled airflow to make the selected material according to the density and size of the wind selection method, airflow can be lighter materials (such as paper, feathers, plastic bags, dead leaves, etc.) up to take away or horizontal direction to a farther place, while heavy materials due to rising airflow can not support them to land, or due to ineligibility. As a result, the wind sorting process is based on the law of solid waste settling in the air to fulfill the goal of sorting and recycling with solid waste management equipment.

Q&A Of Air and Dirt Separator

  • How does an air separation plant work?

    The air separation of solid waste blows light materials (film, paper, fabric, etc.) into the settling chamber, where they are delivered to the next link via the conveyor, and the heavy materials fall directly into the conveyor below.

  • When the air separation of solid waste is in Operation, How Much Dust is Produced?

    Because the air compressor separator is an airtight device with little dust leakage, you can add a dust collector to collect dust for centralized processing.
