The separation occurs thanks to the suspension within an air flow of the lighter materials, together with the kinetic effect of the conveyor belt. Heavier polluting bodies fall down due to the gravity effect and are discarded, whereas lighter pollutants are suspended in air and separated from the cleaned wooden chips. Three fractions are obtained after separation: clean wood chips, heavy pollutants, light contaminants (sand, paper, cellophane, polystyrene). The kinetic separator is often associated with a dust aspiration system.
Advantages Kinetic separator
Low energy consumption thanks to the inverters that drive the belt and the fan
Effective separation of heavy pollutants from the wood chips
Easy regulation of the separator achieved through inverters
Velocity of the belt and intensity of the air flow are easily adjustable
