Qty 1: Sturtevant 16' Whirlwind Classifier (Air Separator). Height from top of 100 HP Motor to outlet flange: 24'-5". Top width: 16'-5". Minimum clearance above motor: 6'-3". Airflow (Vent): 675 CFM. Feed Rate: 125 TPH.

The Whirlwind Classifier offers an exceptional ability to achieve a wide range of separations. Its features allow precise definition and delivery of the
desired size product while delivering the following benefits: Fine classification of materials. Lowest capital cost: no auxiliary equipment, such as cyclones, process dust collectors, air locks, and system fans, are needed. Consistent, high-quality product: external adjustment for variation in feed material.
Saves on operating expenses: Low energy consumption. Reduced maintenance; durable, wear-resistant liners. Processes abrasive materials; long-wearing, ceramic liners and inexpensive, steel replaceable liners

How it works: Material entering through the feed spout is subjected to centrifugal force, throwing coarse particles away from the distributing plate and into the air flow. Due to gravity, large particles settle into the coarse cone. Finer particles are swept upward where selector blades generate further classification. During this secondary separation, oversized particles are spun out of the air flow and drop down into the coarse cone. The selected fines continue through the circulating fan and into the fines cone. Fines drop out of the recirculated air flow at the fixed return air vanes.

APPLICATIONS: Aggregates, crushed stone, Cement, Ceramics, Chemicals, Coal, Diatomaceous earth, Fly ash, Food products, Gypsum, Hydrated lime, Minerals, Plastics, Silica sand, Soda ash, bicarbonate.
