Cyclo-Tex Aerodynamic Particle Classifier separates fine particles
from coarse particles by controlling the amount of aerodynamic
drag applied to the feed material. The coarser product, having
the inertia to overcome the drag applied against it, is thusly
separated from the finer product. The classifier is accurate
from 2 microns to 45 microns and feed rates may approach 500
pounds per hour, depending on the material.
classifier is available in carbon steel or 300 series stainless
steel and can be built to process abrasive materials. The wear
members of the classifiers can be lined with tungsten carbide
blocks as well as plasma sprayed with tungsten carbide to minimize
wear. The classifier can be easily converted to a closed-loop
system for inert processing and can be incorporated into existing
systems with minimal modification.
complete classification system includes a material feeder, either
closed-loop or open-loop, a dust collector, exhaust blower and
fine and coarse receptacles. All of these are available from
Cyclo-Tex in low carbon steel of stainless steel.
classifier is often used in series with the impact mill to create
a complete size reduction and classification system. This is
a time proven system that has produced accurately sized powders
for the aircraft, pharmaceutical, agricultural and ceramics
particle classifiers range in price from $30,000 to $50,000
depending on materials of construction. Units are custom made
to order, and are shipped within 6 to 8 weeks of ordering.
