Low-profile separator

November 1, 2011


SWECO’s Model LA low-profile separator incorporates a single large, vertically mounted motor to induce a sifting motion across the screen plane. The frames of the separator are mounted on rubber isolators compared to springs in conventional low profile and other standard separators. Additionally, the separator runs at higher G loadings and speeds than many traditional low-profile separators. High rates of speed can be attributed to the sifting action that the single-motor design achieves. The LA separator’s pure horizontal, high G motion increases the capacity of the undersize product passing through the screen while allowing oversize material to exit the separator.
