Products and Services
Washing Drum AKA-DRUM: for dissolving raw materials
AKA-DRUM is used for dissolving raw materials. Processing of raw material begins in the washing and elutriation drum. A good washing and elutriation effect is a prerequisite for a high-quality product. AKA-DRUM is manufactured in various sizes.
Wet Classification Screens AKA-SCREEN for fine screening for producing fractions with sharp cut sizes
The AKA-SCREEN is a wet classification technology used to produce fractions with sharp cut sizes in fine-grain screening.
Hydrocyclones AKA-VORTEX: for solid-liquid separation and difficult classification tasks
Hydrocyclones are important and economically valuable components for wet-mechanical separation and classifying processes of minerals and mineral raw materials, matured construction, compact design and continuously developed and improved.
Annular Distributors AKA-SPIDER: for homogeneous and equal pressure distribution of the suspension in the hydrocyclones
AKA-SPIDER are annular distributors, combining several hydrocyclones together in order to reach a requested process throughput.
High Performance Attrition Cells AKA-TRIT: for mechanical surface treatment of minerals
The attrition process is used for cleaning materials contaminated with impurities or pollutants on the surface.
Upstream Classifiers AKA-SIZER: to reach specific cut size
AKA-SIZER type TAK can produce products with cut sizes up to 0.8mm/800μm.
Spirals AKA-SPIN: for gravity separation of minerals
Spirals AKA-SPIN are sorting devices which separate materials according to their density differences. They can be used for a grain size range from 60μm up to 2mm, with a throughput per spiral ranging between 1– 4t/h. If a higher throughput is required, 2 or 3 spirals can be combined to form one column.
High Performance Thickeners AKA-SET: for sludge thickening and valorizing
AKA-SET is a special equipment for thickening and process water treatment. Main application for the AKA-SET is the separation of water, the reduction of sludge volume, the treatment of process water and the thickening of suspensions.
Free-Fall Classifiers AKOREL for production of construction sands within the desired grain size
The AKOREL corrects the grain size of the natural sand deposit according to the required grain size distribution.
