New compact air separator
The unit can be used to separate waste into two waste streams; a heavy and a light waste stream. The compact air separator can for example be used to separate a waste stream from construction & demolition waste in two streams. One (heavy) stream with stones and one (light) stream with wood, paper and plastic.
The compact air separator consists of a fast running speedup conveyor, a horizontal air separator, a fan separator and a specially manufactured rotary material separator. The unit also includes all the necessary ductwork to connect the mentioned components. The air separator can be connected to a dust filter to keep the separator dust free. The unit can be delivered in two sizes; one with a inlet width of 800 mm and one with a width of 1000 mm. The maximum fraction size the compact air separators can handle is 150 mm.
The capacity depends on the bulk density of the material. For example, in a construction and demolition waste stream process the air separator can handle between 20 and 30 ton/h.
The Walair air separator can be placed directly behind a screen. The screen is designed to remove at least 0/10 directly behind the screen the 10+ mm fraction is dropped on a high speed conveyor. With this high speed conveyor the input material is spread, dosed and brought to a horizontal Air separator. The air separator consists of a separation room, a blowing mouth, a adjustable separation plate, and a adjustable extraction hood.
The heavy fraction is separated from the light fraction with a blowing airstream of 80% and an extraction of 100% in the extraction hood. The heavy fraction is dropped on a bunker or conveyor. The light fraction is extracted in the collection hood and transported to a rotating separator. In the rotating separator, the exhaust air will be removed from the light fraction and the light fraction (without pressure) will be transported to a conveyor or waste bunker. The Walair rotating separator is specially fabricated for the recycling industry and is equipped with big entrance doors and an oversized screen to separate the exhaust air from the light fraction.
The air outlay of the material separator is connected by a small suction conductor to a fan separator. The fan is only connected to the rotation separator (100%).The fan includes a separation curve with an adjustable valve and two outputs, one air dust/exhaust output and one air output. The air dust/exhaust output (20%) can be connected to a dust filter, and the air outlet (80%) can be connected by two flexible tubes to the blowing mouth of the air separator.
The suction opening of the fan is equipped with an air regulation valve which can adjust the capacity. Walair can deliver the unit exclusive/inclusive a control box. The customer can install and start-up the unit themselves if they prefer to.
With all the adjustable components the unit can be used for several types of waste.
