The Hydroclassifier is suitable for a variety of classification, desliming and washing problems in continuous testing. By splitting a portion of the pulp circuit in large tonnage plants to a Hydroclassifier, useful operating and control information can be easily and accurately obtained.
Specifications of the Hydroclassifier are similar to those of the commercial unit. A totally enclosed gear drives the steel shaft and spiral rakes. The bottom washing cone insures the complete removal of any mechanically entrapped fine material. With a welded steel tank and sturdy frame, this a self-contained portable unit. Discharge is controlled by a spigot, or positively metered by the 3/4″ Suction-Pressure Diaphragm Pump, which is included with the Hydroclassifier. Standard material of construction is mild steel. Acid resistant materials can be furnished.
