It's your reputation - specify the best. The powerful technology of centrifugal force has been harnessed by man and utilized in the field of solid-liquid separation for over a century. Designed to take full advantage of this technology, Wingert Separators are a highly efficient solid-liquid separation tool. Our pride in producing high quality process equipment for water and wastewater treatment applications is inherent in the entire line of Wingert Separators.

|How Do They Work?|
Systems influent passes through the Wingert Separator in a high velocity circular motion. Centrifugal force slings the particulates, sand, debris, and sludge outward to the separator wall and downward in a spiral motion. Gravitational force pulls the separated solid particles downward past the spin trap plate into the solids holding chamber. Cleansed effluent then rises through the vortex locator and returns back to the system.
The Wingert Separator has no screens, slotted baffles, moving parts or filter media to cause unnecessary pressure loss or use of large volumes of backwash water. No maintenance is required, however periodic opening of the purge valve is necessary to dispose of unwanted solids. Purging can be done manually or automatically through the use of a Wingert Purge Package.

|Performance|Wingert Separators can remove up to 98% of the particles which are 363 mesh / 40 micron, and 1.8 specific gravity or greater. Particles with less than 1.8 specific gravity and smaller than 40 microns may be removed with greater effectiveness from liquids with a specific gravity less than water.
Solid/Liquid Criteria Range
> 40 micron up to 1 3/4", consult factory for other requirements
Minimum 4 psi with little to no fluctuations
8 gpm to 13,953 gpm - higher & variable flow rates possible through manifolding
Minimal fluid loss achieved with continuous recovery system
