The separator fan is employed for the post-harvest selection of shell fruits from the impurities (empty products, ground, leaves, wood sticks and other impurities). The flow of air, generated by the fan, separates the product from the residues mixed up with it, in function of the specific weight. It is powered by electrical energy, it is endowed with its own engine with power of 1,5 kW (model SHP2) or power of 3 kW (model SHP4).
The separator fan can be endowed, on demand, with:
- Rotating screen, which permits to remove ground and residues with smaller dimensions than the product (models SHP2CRIV. or SHP4CRIV.)
- Double rotating screen, which permits to remove residues with smaller and bigger dimensions than the product itself, like sticks and others (model SHP4CRIV.DOPP).
The separator fan is employed in the drying system to make the first dry cleaning of the product. This machine does not remove stones with the same diameter of the product.
