WIMA Density Separator – ASTRO .

The WIMA Heavy Media Separator ASTRO 3000 plays a crucial role in the production of high-quality sands by ensuring that aggregates are free from organic impurities

Conventional processing machines face challenges in sand and gravel deposits with elevated levels of coal and wood, making the removal of organic impurities difficult.

With the ASTRO 3000 Heavy Media Separator, organic components with a density up to 1.8 g/cm³ can be efficiently separated. Depending on the type and quantity of contamination, the sand throughput ranges between 40 and 90 t/h. Density separation is achieved through the uniform upflow of water across the entire container bottom.

The ASTRO is equipped with a hot-dip galvanized nozzle bottom, housing approximately 1,800 nozzle sets. These nozzle sets, comprising a PU impact piece and an attached rubber membrane, ensure optimal distribution of the upflow water, reducing water consumption and minimizing fine sand loss.

Parameter detection in the sorter is carried out by density sensors, while an electronic evaluation unit controls the hydraulically operated outlet valves. The use of Ni-Hard valve inserts enables low-wear, functionally reliable operation.
