Multi-Plex zigzag classifier MZM

For separations with any precision of cut in the range of 100 µm to 6000 µm. Max. feed size 10 mm.

  • Principle of Operation

    This laboratory classifier is an up-stream classifier. The zigzag geometry of the classifying tube ensures that the coarse material is repeatedly rinsed by the classifying air. This results in a multi-stage classification and the classifier achieves an extremely high precision of cut. The cut point can be adjusted over a range from 0.1 to approx. 6 mm. The classifier is mainly used for sorting and separating different materials. Because the classifying process can be viewed through the plastic cover, the 1-40 MZM is ideal as a demonstration model for up-stream classification and as a test stand for laboratory trials during the course of teaching activities.

  • Features
    • Plexiglas cover allows the classifying process to be observed.
    • Classifying tube cross-section 40 x 40 mm.
    • Air flow rate 6 - 60 m³/h, corresponds to 1 - 10 m/s flow velocity.
    • Batch mode, batch size either 0.5 or 25 litres.
    • Throughput approx. 3 - 30 kg/h.
    • Maximum feed size approx. 10 mm.
    • High precision of cut with coarse material free from fines.
