High Capacity Air Knife

High Capacity Air Knife Close Up

The use of air and gravity to separate materials based on density is a widely accepted method within the recycling industry.

The latest development from Mechanical Solutions utilizes and improves on existing air knife systems, offering a flexible, versatile, and cost effective, high through put solution, providing outstanding performance across a wide range of materials.

The high capacity air knife separation system uses a high velocity air stream to separate the in-feed material depending on density.  The addition of a rotating drum dramatically increases the separation efficiency and results in a very high through put with the light fraction being carried in the air stream, over the drum and onto the lights belt leaving the heavier material to drop in front of the drum.
