Aspirators, Cleaners, Graders and Separators
This range of machinery aims to help you remove impurities to leave a clean sample of the material that you are handling.
Aspirators effectively extract dust, chaff, light grains and other impurities from grain. There are two basic types of aspirator available:
They can be used both before and after the grain has been cleaned and dried.
Traditional ‘dust and chaff’ aspirators:
These work by spreading the incoming grain over a screen, then air is used to vacuum clean the grain and remove the dust and chaff
Dust and chaff aspirators are available in capacities from 30tph to 150tph
Heavy duty aspirators:
Grain enters the cleaner body via a built-in duct, this directs the grain centrally to an inverted cone, where it cascades and drops into an outlet hopper. A gap between the cone and hopper pulls the air through the grain, so that any particles lighter than the grain are removed from the sample. An adjustable air control is fitted to the fan unit to regulate the airflow when cleaning lighter crops. Unlike conventional ‘dust and chaff’ extractors, the grain curtain over the cone is very thin to provide good separation of this lighter material
There are four models of heavy duty aspirator and these are available in capacities from 40tph to 150tph.
Cleaners and Graders
As grain quality becomes more important to ensure the best possible prices are achieved, more and more people are looking towards grain cleaners as the answer.
Simple grain cleaning can be achieved by way of an aspirator however if a truly clean sample is required then a cleaner designed specifically for this task will be needed. Depending on the separation task, we can offer various machine types to suit your individual requirement, including:
Separators, also known as destoners, are used to extract impurities such as stones, metallic parts and glass from granular material, leaving a clean sample prior to processing With a capacity of up to 20tph, they are used primarily in the milling and food processing sector.
Magnets and separators
We are able to offer metal and plastic separators for use within the materials processing industry and the recycling industry. We also specialise in magnetic separators designed for the food and beverage industry. Their applications include:
