Separator System Balancing
I need suggestions for balancing the separator system for an optimum work mix. Any ideas?
By opening and or closing the slide gates on the 4" diameter pipes at the back of the separator will increase or decrease the air suction at the lip of the separator. This affects the particle size that is vacuumed out of the abrasive system. While doing this at the top of the separator you also must monitor what is being discharged at the 3" fine refuse tube at the back of the separator. Once balanced correctly there should be traces of new abrasive being discharged at this 3" tube.
