Brief Introduction about the Spiral Separator

Henan Hongxing Mining Machinery Co., Ltd. is a professional spiral separator manufacturer, with decades experience and advanced technology. Now, our engineer will give you a brief introduction about the spiral separator to make our customers know the spiral separator better.

Spiral separator refers to a device for separating slurry components by density, or a device for sorting particles by shape. It has been widely used in coal choosing industry to sort the crude slime in 0.15~3mm level since the beginning of 1990s, especially in some coal-producing countries, such as China, America, Australia, and so on. 

Usually, the spiral separator can be divided into two types, the wet spiral separator and the dry spiral separator. 

The wet spiral concentrator, also called spiral concentrator, is a device to separate solid components in slurry, based upon the different density of solid particle as well as the particle's hydrodynamic properties. The device consists of a tower, around which is wound a sluice, from which slots or channels are placed in the base of the sluice to extract solid particles that have come out of suspension. As larger and heavier particles sink to the bottom of the sluice faster and experience more drag from the bottom, they travel slower, and so move towards the center of the spiral. 

Dry spiral separators, capable of distinguishing round particles from nonrounds, are used to sort the feed by shape. The device consists of a tower, around which is wound an inwardly inclined flight. A catchment funnel is placed around this inner flight. Round particles roll at a higher speed than other objects, and so are flung off the inner flight and into the collection funnel. Shapes which are not round enough are collected at the bottom of the flight. Separators of this type may be used for removing weed seeds from the intended harvest, or to remove deformed lead shot.
