Laboratory electrostatic separator ELKRON ESS
Electrostatic corona drum separator for dry separation of materials with different electrical properties
Laboratory electrostatic separator ELKRON ESS is designed for studying applicability of dry separation processes for materials with different electrical properties. ELKRON ESS provides recovery of metal and mineral particles with size from 0.040 to 8 mm and up to 99.8% separation and cleaning efficiency of feed material.
- 2 in 1: electrostatic and triboelectrostatic mode
ELKRON ESS separator differ from its analogs with capability to operate both in electrostatic mode for separating materials by electrical properties and in triboelectrostatic mode for separating dielectrics by tribocharge sign.
- Separation/cleaning efficiency up to 99.8%
Required separation mode is selected depending on feed material. Fine adjustment of the collecting electrode rotation frequency, position and voltage of the deflecting and corona discharge electrodes, position of the splitters ensures up to 99.8% efficiency of separation and cleaning of the feed material.
- Wide range of separation mode settings
Rotation frequency of ELKRON ESS collecting electrode (320 mm diameter) is adjustable. The presence of infeed hopper with a slide gate and a vibrating feeder in its design allows for adjustment of the process capacity and ensures monolayer material feed. Fine setting of splitters provides accurate separation of fractions by electric properties.
- Automatic cleaning of electrodes
Automatic cleaning of collecting and corona discharge electrodes is automatic without personnel involvement. Continuous removal of nonconductors in automatic mode improves separation quality.
- Touch Screen intuitive control
The control panel is a 7-inch high-definition touch screen with user-friendly interface: 3 levels of access to settings (operator, engineer, service specialist). In addition to settings of main operating parameters of the product, it is possible to save settings of separation parameters for every type of material.
