The aspiration channel is used to separate products with different specific gravities. Primarily the aspiration channel is used for cleaning products or downstream of a shelling machine for separating the kernel and husk.
Via the inlet pipe, the product is fed on a vibrating feeder channel. The oscillating movement results in a layering effect; at the same time the product is conveyed into the aspiration channel. Air flows through this channel from the bottom to the top. The light product parts, such as husks or straw parts, are discharged from the machine together with the air flow. The cleaned main product leaves the machine at the bottom through an outlet funnel.
By regulating the aspiration air quantity and flow speed in the channel, this process can be optimally adjusted to many products.
