Using a spiral separator is a simple, straightforward process.

Using physics and a precisely designed piece of equipment, the material is discharged onto a banked metal flight which is spirally wound around a central shaft. As the material flows down the separator, its speed increases, and centrifugal force carries it toward the outer edge of the flight.

Spiral separators separate damaged, broken or non-round media from the desired round-shaped media. Round materials achieve a velocity far greater than non-rounds which carry them over the outer edge of the flights. Non-rounds and less dense material are unable to reach the edge and continue to downward exiting the bottom of the separator. In the end, you are left with a clean, sorted material that increases quality and profits for your business.
