the Winnow™ VortEX is a centrifugal accelerator separator particularly designed to treat water containing sands or suspended particles which have a higher specific gravity than the water. often used as a pre-filtration stage before fine screening, the VortEX will remove the bulk of larger particles and to reduce the load on the fine screen. the VortEX is capable of removing up to 99% of sand and suspended solids larger than 75μm and up to 65% of particles larger than 50μm.
Featuring full stainless steel construction for a long service life, the VortEX can run continuously and does not have a filtering element or any mechanical parts to service. Sand and solids collected are simply removed by briefly opening a flushing valve while the system is operating. automatic flush valve is available as an option.
