The Separation of Spherical Shape Powder Particles from the Non-Spherical Ones


Article Preview

The conditions needed for an efficient separation together with the most important factors influencing the accuracy of the separation are emphasized. Some relationships that allow the evaluation of the covering degree of the separation surface and the volume of the charge with single dimension particles corresponding to a unit separation surface are presented. The efficiency of spherical shape particles separation and the productivity of the separation process have been analysed. Some technical and practical considerations on the separation process are given.
