An electronic waste recycling company needed to remove plastics and other light particles from glass waste. A high throughput was not required but the separation needed to be thorough.


A vibratory water separator was offered to provide the segregation required.

This unit is essentially an inclined sub resonant tuned vibratory conveyor with a stainless steel trough. A strong stream of water is discharged down the trough which washes away any light particles. Any particles that are heavier (ie glass), will vibrate up along the trough, against the flow of water and be discharge at the end.

Vibratory water separators are ideal for industries that need to separate materials with varying specific gravities such as recycling or mining. They are low cost, low volume alternatives to traditional floatation separators.
