Gravity Separators use a vibrating fluidized bed to separate granular material into multiple fractions according to specific weight. A gravity separator is commonly used to remove lightweight (low quality) seed.
A gravity separator is tilted on two axis and produces a continuous output range based on density. The operator selects the desired product from the gravity discharge using divider gates or valves. The fluidized deck is tilted and rotates allowing the lighter particles to flow to the bottom of the deck while heavier particles are driven up. This process allows gravity separators to separate both light and heavy contaminants from a product simultaneously.
They are mainly used for seed and grain, but can also be used for sand, beans, coal, cork, chemicals, and other dry materials in bulk.
