  • Overview

Features & Benefits

  • High efficiency
  • All moving parts are exterior to the drum
  • Reduced wear on moving parts
  • Minimized replacement costs

The WEMCO® Drum Separator combines high efficiency with the unique feature that all mechanical drive parts are external to the drum-there are no buckets, chains or other moving parts within the processor. This reduces significantly the wear caused by abrasive media solids, minimizes replacement costs and greatly simplifies maintenance.

Drums are available in sizes from laboratory scale to 5.4 meters (18') diameter x 8.1 meters (27') long in two or three product separation format; in capacities, for coal, up to 900 metric tons per hour (1,000 stph).
