The pneumatic classification

Pneumatic classification relies on classification of powdered, dry material suspended in a moving gas (generally air) to obtain two distinct fractions – fine and coarse. The principle of separation is based on the effective size (and not actual physical size) of the particles by difference in dropping velocity in a gas. This type of classification is made for particle sizes of between 1 and 100 µm.

There are two types of pneumatic classification equipment: static classifiers with horizontal or vertical gas current and centrifugal selectors such as cyclones and dynamic separators.

CTP has pneumatic separation equipment operating at laboratory scale and pilot scale.
