AKW A+V Laborant: Moveable Hydrocyclone Test Bench

AKW A+V Laborant

Moveable Hydrocyclone Test Bench

The AKW A+V laborant is a test device for the classification of suspensions with the use of hydrocyclones. The apparatus is equipped with a feed tank (pump sump) and a divided collecting tank for the underflow and overflow of the hydrocyclone.
A pump and the associated connecting pipes, valves and pressure gauges constitute the rest of the laborant.
The device is manufactured in a compact design with robust metal construction and can be put into operation immediately after installation. It is a fully equipped test device, which saves long preparatory work during the execution of the test.

Our range of laborants are readily usable and can handle batches up to 150 liters of suspended slurry, without additional reservoirs.

To extend the trial period, for example to try different operating conditions, the slurry batch can be circulated. However, combined with the adequate storage vessels, the laborant can also be operated in a continuous running configuration, plugged-in on the side stream of a production for instance. The feeding of the pre-screened raw suspension takes place in the open collecting tank.

The laborant can optionally be equipped with two hydrocyclones of different types, in order to carry out comparative tests. They are available for sale as well as for renting, out of our state-of-the-art technical laboratory.
