Factors Affecting the Diameter of Spiral Chute Separator

12/9/2014 8:16:56 AM12/9/2014 8:16:56 AM

Spiral groove is the main component of spiral chute separator. The mineral separation process is completed in the spiral groove. The contour line for a spiral groove is a cubic parabola whose equation is x=ay2. The diameter of spiral groove is the main factor that affects the specifications of spiral chute separator. However, what factors that affect the diameter of the spiral groove? This paper will make a comprehensive summary.

1. The processing capability of spiral chute separator. The diameter of the spiral groove affects the processing capability of spiral chute separator. Normally, the processing capability of spiral chute separator is directly proportional to the square of the spiral groove’s diameter. So spiral chute separator with high processing capability must adopt big diameter spiral groove, instead using small diameter spiral groove.

2. The granularity of ores. The diameter of the spiral groove is related to the particle size of the selected ores. When the spiral chute separator is used for sorting coarse materials, it must adopt big diameter spiral groove; and when it is used for sorting fine materials, the diameter of the spiral drove can be appropriately reduced. Spiral chute separator with short diameter spiral groove has small material processing capability. To improve its production capacity, when the spiral chute separator is used for sorting fine materials, we can use the flat and long diameter spiral groove and adopt a big screw pitch, so that the water flow in the spiral groove will become thin and slow which is good for sorting and collecting ores.

3. The shapes of the cross-section. The shape of the spiral groove’s cross-section is usually oval, shoes long axis is as two times as its short axis’s. The length of the long axis is about as two-thirds times long as spiral groove. This shape of spiral groove has good effect for sorting coartse materials.
