Functionality of windshifter

Airy-light separation

In windshifter, the separation of materials is based on differences in density and size. The required air flow is generated by a blower and a nozzle and carries away less density and small parts. Inside the windshifter, the separating drum ensures the separation of the materials. Light parts are blown over the drum, while heavy parts fall to the bottom, where they are collected and can be transported further by conveyor belts.
