ZZ SERIES / SORTING TECHNOLOGY
Aspirators & Gravity Separators machines
The PETKUS Selecta Zig-Zag aspirator is a machine designed to separate seeds based on specific weight in a vertical ZZ shaped column for both seed production and laboratory purposes. It was specially developed for gravity separation of small batches with a high level of accuracy which is equivalent to that of a gravity table and even higher when sorting flat and/or long seeds.

HOW DOES IT WORK?
The electrically adjustable vibrating feeding hopper (1) ensures an even inlet of seeds in the adjustable airflow
The seeds move into the Z-shaped air-channel and are met with an upward airstream whereby the heavy
seeds fall down and are collected in a collecting-bin (4).
The light seeds are carried off by the upward airstream and are collected in the collecting-bin (6) underneath the air channel.
The air and the fine dust are blown out through the ventilator (7). The dust behind the ventilator is collected in a dust-bag with filter.
The VIDOS vibrating feeder is located in a vacuum-tight chamber (2) to prevent the airstream in the air channel from being disturbed. The air channel is very smooth and makes the machine self-clean for most seeds.
The front is covered with a glass-door (scratch-free and anti-static) which makes it possible to follow the process step by step. The air flow is continuously adjustable by a digital converter. The fan is very stable and operates silently. The vibrating feedinghopper is also continuously adjustable. The machine is built on a stable stand. All functions on the panel are next to the air channel and easy to handle.
• High accuracy of separation, precise separation adjustments,
easy reproduction of results
• Self-cleaning, easy control through a glass window
• Very easy to operate
• Minimal loss of valuable seeds as all remain in transparent
boxes / seed bins
• Also suitable for very small batches (no minimum volume
• Unlimited continuous adjustment of air fan
• Regular flow feeding by VIDOS vibrating feeder
• Dust-bag filter on air output for clean operation, does
not need extra aspiration
