The Unconventional Guide | Elutriation, & Bi-Product Material Separation Technology
Use elutriation and material separation technology for bi-products. In this article, you can learn more about elutriation and bi-product material separation technology.
Elutriation is a well-established technique that uses both centrifugal force and counter flow drag force to separate particles based on size and sedimentation density. It was first developed in 1948. During centrifugation, the elutriation chamber is a specialized piece of equipment that allows the buffer to pass through the chamber.
What is elutriation
Elutriation (the opposite of sedimentation) is the method of pushing a fluid (usually a gas) through a powder bed to determine particle size distributions. The approach is based on the capacity of fluid velocities to support particles of a specific size.
During centrifugation, cells are inserted into the chamber and are forced to occur and are forced to the chamber’s edges by the centrifugal force. Due to the counter flow drag power, the buffer’s flow rate through the chamber is increased, and the buffer moves cells toward the middle of the buffer stream.
hat is bi-product material
The construction industry can benefit from by-products (fly ash) generated during the combustion of boiler fuels (coal). In order to minimize emissions, factories are mixing coal and biofuels in their boilers. In comparison to fly ash (a by-product of coal combustion), the physical and chemical properties of these cofired ashes change.
A thorough examination of the possible raw material and its end use as a novel building material is conducted. The type of biomass and its proportion in the blend determine the properties of co-fired ash. With reference to applicable criteria, a critical analysis of co-fired ash as a supplementary cementitious material and during the manufacture of blended cement has been reviewed.
What are the benefits of elutration and Bio-product material separation technology for your business?
We primarily serve the bulk material processing industry, where our patented Air Density Separation technology (The Patented Air Wash) can provide a number of advantages. These benefits include the ability to streamline your processes, increase the amount of available manufacturing scrap and end-of-life products, and improve material separation, throughput, and process speed.
Our technology can also help your facility reduce labor and maintenance costs by reducing manufacturing time and processing costs. Recycling, automotive, textile recovery, wood processing, and agricultural processing are some of the most common industries in which we work.
However, following the implementation of this technology in a facility, some of the most popular, strong, and impactful benefits are:
- Generates greater regrind materials that can be repurposed, leased, or reused.
- More processing, scrap, and end-of-life materials are used.
- Increase the manufacturing capacity of your facility.
- Improves the processing speed, output, and material throughput of the plant.
- Improve the company’s resource use and recycling capabilities to make it more environmentally friendly.
- Improved facility cleanliness due to significantly improved dust and particle collection
- Reduce labor costs by enhancing and automating material processing capacities.
- Reduces (and in some cases almost completely eliminates) the high costs of waste removal and recycling of surplus manufacturing scrap.
and a lot more…
You’re aware of the advantages of using air density, elutriation, and aspiration technology at this stage. What makes our revolutionary Air Conveyance Air Wash material separation technology so much more efficient than other purveyors of “standard” elutriation systems, is the next issue.
The Air Wash machine transports and separates materials at the same time. It has no internal moving parts, obviating the need for routine maintenance and repairs. While the AirWash is going, adjustments can be made.
In the end,
Within the bulk material processing industries, the number of applications for different forms of Elutriators and Elutriation Systems is only surpassed by the number and level of benefits the technology provides. To control material flow and separation, we designed the system to integrate “simplicity of operation” with “set and lock” inlet gate functionality. Airlock valves, screeners, and other expensive, high-maintenance mechanical equipment are not needed because the device can be fed directly from a granulator, bin, or other source. It can also work with your current granulator and blower systems.
