Eriez® Releases Video Showing DensitySort® Air Table Separating Nonferrous Fines into Light and Heavy Fractions

Press Release:
  Aug 21, 2013 — Erie, PA — The remarkable performance of the Eriez® DensitySort® Air Table efficiently sorting nonferrous fines is captured on a video recently released by Eriez. The video has a run time of about a minute and a half and can be viewed from the company’s YouTube channel: or from the Eriez website at

As demonstrated in the video, the DensitySort Air Table sorts nonferrous fines into two fractions: Twitch (light fraction) and Zebra (heavy fraction). By utilizing the DensitySort to further separate metals, processors can increase the value of their fines by more than 20 percent.

The video shows how the DensitySort separates metals of different specific gravities using air, vibration and slope. Material is fed at the low point of the table's slope. Its own specific mass directs the particles into low density or high density collection bins.

Gravity permits more than 70 percent red metal recovery and produces a clean aluminum (Twitch) fraction. The middlings are collected and recycled back into the process.

The economical DensitySort eliminates the need for sand, water or filtration and delivers payback in as little as six months. More information on the Eriez DensitySort Air Table can be found at
