WSV principle separating process

The windshifter is a combination of a recirculation fan, a separation unit (the actual windshifter), and either a Rotary Air Separator (RAS) or Cyclone. This configuration is individually designed and ideal for any operation, especially in tight spaces and in retrofits. As an alternative to a Rotary Air Separators (RAS) we offer a complete range of Cyclones for fraction sizes from 0-20 mm.The picture below shows the operating principle of the WSV. The shifter unit of the WSV windshifter has a vertical design. In the vertical separation unit, the heavy materials are separated from the light materials.

WSZ principle separating process

The shifter unit of the WSZ windshifter is of a zigzag-type design. In the zigzag separation unit, the heavy materials are separated from the light materials.
