Instrument Details
Instrument/Facility Name: Specific gravity separator
Make                                   : Bharat Agro and Food Industries
Model                                  : Bharat Agro and Food Industries
Specification   :Capacity 20 kg/h

Click to ViewThe principle of floatation is employed here. A mixture of seeds is fed onto the lower end of a sloping perforated table. Air is forced up through the porous deck surface and the bed of seeds by a fan, which stratifies the seeds in layers according to density with the lightest seeds and particles of inert matter at the top and the heaviest at the bottom. An oscillating movement of the table causes the seeds to move at different rates across the deck. The lightest seeds float down under gravity and are discharged at the lower end, while the heaviest ones are kicked up the slope by contact with the oscillating deck and are discharged at the upper end.
