The machine is self contained and driven by an electric motor. Its internal flow components are constructed of SS 316. All separators serve as pumps in the system. The heavier elements are drawn to the outside of the vortex while the lighter material is drawn to the central core of the vortex. Once the vortex separation is established the flows are separated by a simple flow divider into two streams, one of the heavier matter and one of the lighter matter. Separators are available in 1″, 2″, 4″, 8″, 16″, 32″, 48″, 72″, and 100″. Specials can be produced for any possible flow rate.
