Gravity separator machine for lead batteries

The Specific Gravity Separator represents a significant innovation in the field of recycling of spent lead-acid batteries. This equipment, recently introduced by our company, marks an important step towards sustainability, offering an efficient solution for the separation and recycling of mixed materials. Its implementation not only promotes energy efficiency but also ensures environmental protection thanks to the absence of pollution from wastewater and acidic or alkaline substances.

Principles of Operation

The operation of the specific gravity separator is based on a classification system that includes the separator itself, a cyclone dust collector and a fan. The suction action of the fan transports the material from the lower feed point to the grading area with a rapidly ascending airflow. Thanks to the centrifugal force generated by the rapidly rotating grading turbine, coarser materials are separated from fine ones. The fine particles, conforming to the desired particle size distribution, are collected by passing through the blades of the grading wheel, while the coarse ones fall by the action of gravity and centrifugal force, being subsequently evacuated.

Distinguishing features

This system stands out for several reasons: it adopts a vertical classification turbine that reduces wear and energy consumption, ensuring efficient classification of powders in various particle size ranges from 1.6 to 45 microns. It is compatible with different types of grinding, thus being able to be integrated into closed production cycles to reduce dust emissions below 40 mg/m³ and noise below 75 dB(A), thanks to the use of silencers. The automated control system allows for precise adjustment and real-time monitoring of the process, increasing overall efficiency.

Fields of Application

The separator is used in a wide range of industries. It can be used for high hardness materials such as silicon carbide, corundum, boron carbide, metal powders such as aluminum and magnesium, and non-metals such as quartz, graphite and calcite. Its versatility also extends to the chemical, food and pharmaceutical industries for the processing of pollen, vegetable powders and epoxy additives, as well as ceramic, refractory and magnetic materials, thus demonstrating a wide spectrum of use.

A Breakthrough for Lead-Acid Battery Recycling

The adoption of the specific gravity separator in the recycling of lead-acid batteries not only increases the efficiency of the process but also promotes environmental sustainability. This technology represents an advanced solution to overcome the challenges related to material separation, contributing significantly to the reduction of the environmental impact associated with the disposal of used batteries. Its implementation is a concrete example of how technological innovation can drive the sector towards more environmentally friendly practices, reaffirming the importance of technical progress in the field of recycling.
