Are you having separation anxiety?!
Take a deep breath. Count to ten. And turn this on.
Parts on one side, excess media on the other. This is a simple solution to a big problem.
Managing and operating a mass finishing department has its challenges. From equipment, to media, to cleaning operations and more – there are quirks that most vendors don’t talk about. More often than not, separation of your products/components from the media is one of them.
Some things to keep in mind to help with this headache:
– Know your tumbling media. Choosing the appropriate media size and shape can help alleviate some issues. In certain applications, using less dense medias can help as well!
– Know all your options. In order to make the right selection for separation, you need to know what is available to you. Separation solutions can include vibratory, air or water powered technologies. Speak to a specialist about your application.
