Vibratory separators are devices commonly used to separate materials or particles across a number of different applications and industries. When looking at vibratory separators you will find a number of different designs and concepts. Now the end goal of a lot of these vibratory separators are similar but how they achieve that goal is what is important to pay attention to when you are looking for a vibratory separator for your specific application. While some might function very well in one application, the same vibratory separator will not succeed in another application. This is why consulting a trusted, experienced and knowledgeable vibratory separator manufacturer is so important.
Vibratory separators offer a wide range of advantages, from accurate filtering to outstandingly efficient separation. They achieve this by breaking down the surface tension between the particles through the use of high frequency vibration. This vibration is the key to the whole process which is why these separators are appropriately named, vibratory separators. Commonly, these separators will operate at an angle in order to induce what is called the popcorn effect. This effect is one of the main reasons that these vibratory separators are so effective at separating particles, as the coarse particles tend to get lifted while the finer particles tend to stay closer to the separator. How fast the vibratory separator is operating has an impact in how the separation occurs, and this can typically be controlled in order to achieve the right frequency for your application.
Understanding your application and how a vibratory feeders might fit into this application is key to finding the right product for you. Vibratory separators can be found in a multitude of different industries such as powder metallurgy, wood pelleting, ores and minerals, pharmaceutical, and so many more. They are found in so many different industries because there is such a diversity of styles and designs which can accommodate the needs and specifications of those applications. For this reason, we recommend consulting a knowledgeable vibratory separator manufacturer who can help you find the best possible solution for your application.
