The air stream enters the separator tangentially at the top, creating a rotating airflow (vortex). By centrifugal force the dust or liquid particles are moved along the outside wall where they are separated and, in spiralmotion, slide into a collection device (plastic bag). It is also possible to mount an LTG dust compactor below the separator. In the lower part of the housing, the air stream is forced to reverse and flows upwards through the immersion tube.
ZSCs are used for large volumetric flows of 1 400 to 5 500 m3/h, pressure losses of 1 200 to 2 500 Pa and dust quantities of up to 100 kg/h. Their rugged design and wear-preventing interior lining ensure maximum reliability, safety and availability.
