About the Solution:

The SWECO HX Series Round Separator improves upon the technology and performance from their previous separators while increasing safety and simplifying clean-up and maintenance. New features of the HX Series include…

ProGlide™ Linear Weight System

The ProGlide™ is a new top and bottom “no-tools” weight system, which presents fine proportional motion adjustment. The weights are equivalent and easy to adjust as there is only one weight to move. The single weight is moved radially to dial in on the optimal horizontal and vertical amplitude and force to improve each separator’s efficiency and throughput.

Lower Weight Guard

The new HX features a new lower weight guard to enclose the motor and lower weight assembly. The guard reduces the risk of reach-in injuries while complying with CE Standards. The new guard can be easily removed without disassembling the drive.

What it does…

The HX separates solids from liquids or segregates 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 the ease with which screens may be changed.

How it works…

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. The 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, light or heavy, coarse or fine, hot or cold.
