We all know that the higher the weight of the seed, the more its germination rate, vigor and yield. Therefore, the gravity separator plays a prominent role in grading seeds by weight in the seed processing industry. So how much do you know about gravity separators?
What is the Gravity Separator?
Gravity separators are used to separate products of the same size but different specific gravity. They can effectively remove the partially eaten, immature, pest disease and moldy seeds from the seeds to ensure the highest quality of the final product. The traditional cleaning methods of seed cleaners and serrated drums proved to be less effective. They can be used to separate and standardize coffee, peanuts, corn, peas, rice, wheat, sesame and other grains.
What is the Working Principle of the Gravity Separator?
Gravity separation is an industrial method of separating two components, either a suspension, or dry granular mixture where separating the components with gravity.
The components of the mixture have different specific weight. And all of the gravitational methods are common in the sense that they all use gravity as the dominant force.
One type of gravity separator lifts the material by vacuum over an inclined vibrating screen covered deck. This results in the material being suspended in air while the heavier impurities are left behind on the screen and are discharged from the stone outlet. The product flows over the vibrating table where pressurized air is forced through, causing the material to layer according to its specific gravity. The heavier particles move to a higher layer, while the lighter particles move to a lower layer of the table.
In order to obtain effective specific gravity separation, the pressurized air supply needs to be precisely adjusted. This is achieved by using individually adjustable fans to control the air distribution in different areas of the vibrating deck.
This type of gravity separator has a rectangular deck so that the product travels a longer distance resulting in cleaner separation of light and heavy particles.

Application Industries of the Gravity Separator
Gravity separation is used in a wide variety of industries, the most extensive and main field is agriculture.
Gravity separators are used for the removal of impurities, admixture, insect damage and immature kernels from the following examples: wheat, barley, oilseed rape, peas, beans, cocoa beans, linseed. They can be used to separate and standardize coffee beans, cocoa beans, peanuts, corn, peas, rice, wheat, sesame and other food grains.
Features of Gravity Separator
Can easily separate granular materials according to the weight of the product.
Easy deck removal for cleaning.
Easy adjustment of deck inclination in both longitudinal and transverse directions.
Multi-fan system for accurate control of air.
Precise Control of air, feed rate and speed of deck motion.
