Micron Separator Air Classifier

The Micron Separator Air Classifier is a mechanical centrifugal air classifier, using “flow through” technology, providing precise, efficient, and reliable separations of materials. The Micron Separator is unique in the field of fine powder classification as it can be retrofitted to many popular grinders, such as the Mikro Pulverizer® Hammer & Screen Mill.

Design & Options:

  • The rotor speed determines the centrifugal force; particle size can be easily adjusted by changing the rotor speed.
  • Can process up to 4,000 lbs/hour
  • Operates with efficiencies up to 90%
  • Classifies any material, organic or inorganic that can be spherical, flaky, and/or fibrous particles.
  • Classifying rotor uses the principles of fluid dynamics.
  • Closed circuit operation permits the grinding of heat sensitive materials or products with low softening points.
  • Great for classifying food particles such as: sugar; salt; flour, and grain; starch; dairy products; spices; tea; gelatin; vegetables; cocoa powder and chocolate crumb.
  • Application use for the chemical industry consists of: calcium sulfide; silicon carbide; acrylic resin; magnesium oxide; magnesium dioxide; and carbon black.
  • Typical mineral filler applications include: calcium carbonate; lime; mica; pearlite; gypsum; barium sulfate and alumina.

The machinery is able to classify particles by balancing the centrifugal force of the rotor and the centripetal force of the air. Material to be separated is pulled through by the fan into the inlet duct and up to the rotor, where the two opposing forces classify it. Finer particles are more susceptible to centripetal forces whereas coarse particles are more prone to centrifugal force. These forces flow coarse materials down the inside wall of the machine, emptying out the materials in the coarse particle discharge, while finer particles travel through the air current into the rotor and then discharged through the upper outlet duct. There are 12 motor options to suit all classification needs. The Micron Separator Air Classifier are perfect for applications in the food, chemical, and cosmetic industries. 

Due to heavy market demands for multipurpose technology, the Micron Separator is unsurpassed with its broad applications range, boosted productivity when paired with a grinding unit, and precise classifications of even the finest particles.
