PICS INTERNATIONAL Bucket Classifiers ensure excellent performance by cleaning out the sand in the slow moving screw tank. Our Bucket Classifiers' low turbulence flow aids in the effortless cleaning of sand.
The bucket classifier is the perfect piece of equipment for washing, separating silt and other pollutants, and dewatering sand after washing. It is incredibly efficient and combines the washing and dewatering processes.
Dewatering Dewatering, desliming, degritting, rinsing, scrubbing, sizing, and washing are just a few of the many uses for screens. They are made to work with granular materials including sand, gravel, crushed aggregates, frac sand, industrial sands, mineral sands, hard rock, precious metals ore, coal, iron ore, salt, and other granular materials and create a consistent drip-free product.
The larger pieces are first filtered out of the dry sand from the tertiary or
quaternary crusher using an inclined vibrating screen. The sand is then combined
with water in a certain proportion using a slurry pump, and the mixture is then
delivered into the classifier through a feed intake that is situated below the
dewatering screen. As a result, the material passes through a calm area of the
bucket classifier before entering the trough.
In actuality, lighter particles tend to settle down whereas finer particles prefer to float up the water's surface due to their lower weight. The heavier sand tends to be pushed into the tub from the bottom of the classifier by the force of the incoming feed and the rotation of the bucket wheel assembly. Additionally, the sand is pushed into the bottom of the bucket wheel assembly by the screw mechanism, which operates very slowly. Classified sand is transported via the output chute thanks to the shovelling action of the bucket wheel.
