SICON WetFloat®

Your wet table for ultra-pure fractions

How does it work?

After granulation or similar processing steps, mixed fractions, such as non-ferrous mixtures or aluminum-copper mixed fractions, are fed onto a separation deck of the WetFloat. A steady and continuous water supply creates a float on the deck causing light particles such as plastics to float while heavier particles such as metals descend to the bottom of the separation deck. Adjustable by the tilt of the table, the light-floating particles are conveyed towards the lower part of the WetFloat. Simultaneously, the vibrating separation deck transports the heavy particles in the opposite direction towards the upper end of the WetFloat. As a result the WetFloat produces two material-pure fractions.
