Screenpod Hydra FS1400 Static

Floatation separator that separates light material from heavy material using a water filled tank. The light material floats on the water to be removed by a brush conveyor, the heavies will sink underwater and then transfer out along the submerged conveyor into a separate stockpile.

Includes a shaft less-screw at the bottom of the water tank to which transfers to the discharge screw on the side keeping the machine free of unwanted sediment.

Using the simple principal that less dense material will float whilst the heavier ones will sink, the Screenpod flotation separator comprises a water-bath of approximately 4m3 into which the mixed materials are loaded via a top-mounted chute and two opposed conveyor systems. The first conveyor is partially submerged which draws the heavier fraction out of the water-bath and creates an external stockpile at one end of the machine, whilst the other conveyor skims the floating fraction to an external stockpile at the opposite end.

Any sludge which then accumulates at the base of the water-bath is conveyed out of the machine by a system of submerged helical screws.

Available in either diesel-hydraulic or electric.
