- Efficient removal of contaminants like sand, glass, chips, pins, etc. from the pulp stock
- Simple installation and proper velocity maintained by the geometry of the cone
- Easy visual inspection of the vortex through the illuminated sight glass at the bottom
- Protection of further screening and refining equipment from wear and abrasion
The tangential inlet accelerates the stock into downward centrifugal motion with the required velocity. Due to the centrifugal rotation of the stock, the impurities with high specific gravity are forced to the outer wall of the cone and downward to collect in a trap. The cleaned stock is discharged from the cleaner through a top-side acceptance pipe.
