Brightway Separation Plant Flowchart

For the well-known brands in the slurry separation plant industry-Schauenburg, Herrenknecht, Bauer, etc, they are the respectable manufacturer.

Brightway is the growing company in the separation plant industry for the micro-tunneling( pipe-jacking) and TBM( Tunneling Bore Machine) projects, and I’d like to introduce our processing flow of Brightway separation plant as below.

Separation Plant Operation Flowchart

Separation Plant Operation Flowchart

Slurry charged with soil is conveyed to the plant through the supply line (1) and let out onto a vibrating coarse sieve (2) which removes particles exceeding 5 mm in size.
The sieved slurry processed by the second fine shaker and drops into a trough and passes through a pipe into the main reservoir (3) of the desanding module from where it is pumped (4) to the two main cyclones (5) which separate out sand from the slurry.

The sand pours out through the underflow outlets (6) of the cyclones and drops onto a vibrating fine sieve to be dewatered and removed (7) from the process.

The treated slurry leaving the cyclones through the overflow outlets pours into an intermediate tank (8) from where it passes to a storage tank (9).

A further refinement of the slurry can be achieved by pumping (10) already

I will update the processing flow of Herrenknecht , Bauer, Schauenburg in the follow weeks.
