Maximize automated air classification with General Kinematics all new Triple Knife DE-STONER® Air Classifier. The patent pending Triple Knife DE-STONER® creates up to three distinct material cuts… heavies, lights, and ultra lights, for maximum material reclamation.
How the DE-STONER® Works
Energy-efficient vibratory action and high velocity, low pressure air streams work in tandem to fluidize and stratify commingled materials according to differences in terminal particle velocity. Many DE-STONER® systems are designed with “air curtains” to provide further separation after the initial cut of “heavies”. The result: fast, efficient removal of heavy materials such as stones, metallics, and glass from lightweight materials such as aluminium, paper, plastics and wood.
Simple, dependable dry system
Our economical, completely dry DE-STONER® system eliminates the need for a water supply and other attendant system problems found with wet tanks and other water based separation systems. However, the DE-STONER® can easily handle moist materials.
True Triple Knife System
The Triple Knife DE-STONER® separates material using two air knifes on the interior of the machine and a third knife located at the outlet, creating a cleaner product for C&D and other mixed, high volume waste materials. Units can also include pre-classification and fluidization sections for additional material separation, providing a cleaner, higher value heavy and light material.
Existing Dual Knife DE-STONER® can benefit from an upgrade to the triple-knife for further separation of materials like light wood from light paper. Upgrades are an easy weld-on attachment.
