|PHOENIX/KISA Bucket Wheel is Designed for the capture, de-sliming and dewatering of granular solids including construction aggregate (sand & gravel), specialty sands, granular tailings from mining, dredger slurry and more. These machines are uniquely designed for high solids recoveries with exceptionally low power requirements. The dewatered solids are readily conveyable and stackable, having residual moisture contents that are comparable with the product from dewatering screens.
The wheel is equipped with multiple buckets. Many designs are available with the wheel diameter and bucket width determining the solids handling capacity and the surface area of the slurry bath defining the hydraulic capacity.
Sand, gravel and other granular material is fed to the feed box in the front of the bath. Material is picked up by the buckets as it spins slowly. The slow operating speed and absence of vibration and robust materials ensures lower maintenance costs versus dewatering screws, pumps/hydrocyclones and dewatering screens. Siphon assisted pipes returns the water and material that pass though the sieve mats to the bath. Dewatered solids move through the discharge chute and are conveyable and stackable. Waste fines flow upward in the bath to the overflow launder.
