Kipp Kelly Destoners
Vacuum & Pressure Destoners
Kipp Kelly Air Flotation Destoners separate two fractions by weight rather that by shape or size. Stones, mudballs, nails, glass, tramp metals, and many other combinations are removed by flour mills and cereal plants, grain elevators, food plants, and mineral processors.
Kipp Kelly Industrial Concentrators separate dense product from small granular products like diamonds from ore, or steel cable in tire recycling.
Kipp Kelly Air Flotation Stoners and Concentrators are available in three models with capacities up to 14 tonnes/hr, depending on product being treated.
Particles are shaken on an inclined deck which removes all unwanted heavy materials. Example: stones, mud, and metals.
These units are widely adaptable to the dry bulk agricultural food industries with hundreds of applications. The machines are also widely used in the Mineral Refining industry and recycling of various products.
The Kipp-Kelly Pressure Destoners incorporate a full width feeder to a urethane coated mesh deck. The urethane coated decks provide superior traction and wear characteristics far exceed standard steel mesh or even stainless steel. Simplified operation requires only three adjustments, feed, angle of slope and air.
Vacuum Series (S-30, S-45 and S-60)
Product is fed onto the oscillating deck towards the higher end. A uniform current of air is drawn through the porous deck by an external fan or plant ventilation system. The lighter weight material flows down and the heavier material, not being supported by the air stream, is carried to the upper end of the deck by the deck motion and discharged.
Our design is virtually free of vibration, dustproof and has infinitely variable air control. The deck may be removed quickly and easily for cleaning. Power requirement is low and installation is simple and inexpensive.
Pressure Series (S40-60 and S60-60)
Product is fed onto the oscillating deck towards the higher end. A uniform current of air is blown through the porous deck by an integral Fan mounted under the deck. The lighter weight material flows down and the heavier material, not being supported by the air stream, is carried to the upper end of the deck by the deck motion and discharged.
Our design is virtually free of vibration with the use of a special wobble drive, and has infinitely variable air control. The deck may be removed quickly and easily for cleaning.
The Difference between Pressure and Vacuum Style Density
The fan is located under the deck surface and provides the “lift” of air to the product on the deck media. Destoners and Gravity Tables can be manufactured in a Pressure Configuration. Air volume is controlled with an air inlet into the eye of the internal fan.
Simple mechanics and drive, with the deck drive often incorporated with the fan drive. Operator has full view of the deck surface.
On dusty material, an overall dust hood and suction system must be incorporated, doubling the horsepower requirements.
The remote fan is located away from the density separator and provides suction to the product on the deck media. Destoners and Gravity Tables can be manufactured in a Vacuum Configuration. Air volume is controlled with an air Valve on the duct between the suction fan and the density unit.
Built in dust control, lower overall horsepower and usually a lower profile than a pressure style.
Vacuum seal must be maintained on the feed and discharge points, which can be difficult with light material. More difficult for the operator to see the separation as they are looking through a Plexiglas window.
