MZM and MZF zigzag classifiers
Gravity classifiers for sharp separations in the range 0.3 – 10 mm.
Alpine offers zigzag classifiers in two different designs: MZM and MZF. Each design is available in a range of machine sizes from a single-tube to a multi-tube classifier ideal for sharp separations in the range d97 = approx. 0.3 – 10 mm.
Throughputs can range from a few kg/h in the case of the laboratory classifier up to approximately 200 t/h for the industrial scale multi-tube classifier. Classification takes place at every change in direction of the zigzag tube and permits an extremely high, step-less adjustable precision of cut. The result is clean-cut fines or lightweight material, even under overload conditions.
- Oleiferous seeds: classifying systems for separating cracked soy beans or sunflower seeds.
- Precious metals: the separation of copper, aluminium or lead from the insulation material of previously cut cable scrap.
- Dust removal from plastic granules, coke, chalk, fertilisers, bauxite, etc.
These classifiers offer; maintenance-free and wear-resistance, overload-proof and insensitivity to changes in the feed material composition.
As a result of these characteristics, once set, the classifying system can be operated over long periods without any supervision at all.
Single as an MZM or multi tube as an MZF.
