Separating bulk solids via air classification, screening or gravity separation is ubiquitous in many industries — an understanding of these processes is crucial to solids-handling engineers
Matt Mayo, Chris Meadows and Celie Reid, Triple/S Dynamics, Inc.
The chemical process industries (CPI) have many applications that require classifying or separating solid materials. Dry separation methods can basically be broken down into three main types of mechanical separation procedures: air classification, screening and specific-gravity separation. This article provides background on the different dry-separation techniques and equipment, and also guides engineers in addressing some specific dry-separation issues...
