Sweco Dewatering System
Behind each Vibro-Energy Round Separator is the SWECO legacy, synonymous with top quality equipment, innovative design, and exacting standards. Since 1942 when SWECO patented the first vibratory separator to today's high yield Vibro-Energy Round Separators, SWECO has continued our tradition of solutions and service.
The latest in round separation design from SWECO is the new generation MX Separator. Currently available in 30-, 40-, 48- and 60-inch diameters, the separator is designed to increase safety, provide stronger construction and allow for a more sanitary process. The totally enclosed weight guard on the MX prevents "reach in" injuries, complying with European CE Standards. The extremely rugged construction of this machine utilizes conical construction rather than flat plates which creates a more rigid geometric structure. Additionally, the open base construction allows for cleaning underneath the unit, therefore preventing dirt and product build-up.
What it does
Separate solids from liquids or segregate dry materials into various sizes. Particles as fine as 400 mesh (37 microns) can be screened, with up to 4 screen decks incorporated in one SWECO separator. No special flooring or foundation is needed and less working floorspace is required. Simple and efficient design requires less horsepower. Other features include long screen life and ease with which screens may be changed.
Basically, the SWECO Separator is a vibratory screening device that vibrates about its center of mass. Vibration is accomplished by eccentric weights on the upper and lower ends of the motion-generator shaft. Rotation of the top weight creates vibration in the horizontal plane, which causes material to move across the screen cloth to the periphery. The lower weight acts to tilt the machine, causing vibration in the vertical and tangential planes. The angle of lead given the lower weight with relation to the upper weight provides variable control of the spiral screening pattern. Speed and spiral pattern of material travel over the screen cloth can be set by the operator for maximum throughput and screening efficiency of any screenable product ... wet or dry ... heavy or light ... coarse or fine ... hot or cold.
