When washing or separating, this equipment uses hydraulic separation and large amounts of water to separate 200 mesh material or coarser from the product. Therefore, the relative buoyancy of different grain particles and their setting rates under specific conditions of water flow and turbulence are critical factors in the AggFlow DM calculations.
This equipment operates using similar inputs in the setup. Material that enters the equipment will be divided into 2 flows, being a product and an overflow. As material passes through the equipment, the flow separation is determined by the split point settings which are related to the amount of water in the feed and added, and the water retained in the product.
Sand screws are limited in the amount of material smaller than the #50 (0.297 mm) that can be raked up the incline. As spiral speed increases, more turbulence in the weir reduces the settling rate of the fines and the ability of the sand screw to move those fines up the incline.
Spiral Speed: Adjust the spiral speed of the sand screw by moving the slider or entering a value. The corresponding Spiral RPM is calculated based on the speed. Modifying this automatically adjusts the raking capacity.
