ACS Frequently Asked Questions

Explore some of the most commonly asked questions we get asked about our Air Conveyance Systems Air Wash Technology and of course, their answers below.

How does the Air Wash Material Separation system work?

The Air Wash separator has an inner Vortex that travels in an upward direction. The “Air Wash'” patented advantage is its ability to modify the size, speed and position of the inner vortex. This allows precise control of material separation, for a wide range of applications.

Heavy materials are carried to the outside by centrifugal force, and after two to three revolutions are discharged by an air lock. Light materials are captured by the upward spiralling vortex and are removed through the upper basket and conveyed to a discharge port.

What industries use the "Air Wash" Material Separation System?

Grain and Seed Mill Operations use the Air Wash Material System to modernize and improve their old screening and aspirator technology.

Carpet, tire and plastic recyclers use the Air Wash for fiber and contaminant separation.
Injection molding and automotive suppliers can re-use their scrap utilizing the air wash
Bakery Waste and Saw Dust material recovery companies can use our technology for the advancing opportunities in these sectors.

Check out our Industries page to learn more about the various sectors we serve.

Why does the Air Wash outperform aspirator and elutriation technology?

The airwash conveys and separates material simultaneously. We use less air, which requires less horsepower and filtration. With no internal moving parts and the fan positioned on the cyclone’s clean side, we experience minimal material wear. Adjustments can be made while the air wash is running, giving the operator instantaneous feedback.

Initial investment and operational costs are lower, and we can easily integrate the Air wash with your existing equipment.

Click the following link for a full breakdown of how our technology is dramatically superior to standard Elutriation Systems.

Can the Air Wash system integrate into our existing Grain or Seed Mill operation?

Yes. We can evacuate your Dehullers or impact equipment, perform the critical material separation function and then convey your grain and animal feed bi-products to staging silos and storage totes.

How does the "Air Wash System" integrate with Carpet and Tire Recycling operations?

We will evacuate your size reduction equipment, convey and separate materials to your desired specifications and locations.

Our system is modular, and we routinely design custom layouts based on your space and equipment criteria.

How do we request a free No-obligation validation study for our application?

Easy, just visit our Complimentary Material Processing Validation Study page and complete the form.

Our expert technician will contact you for a free, no obligations assessment.

What sample size do you require for a validation study?

70 pounds will suffice for the first trial which coincides with the maximum weight your local courier will accept

You can ship all samples freight prepaid to our R&D Laboratory located at: 100 Frid Street, Unit 17, Hamilton, Ontario L8P 4M4

For our USA Customers, our customs agent will expedite and clear your sample shipment to minimize any delays.

When your samples arrive, our research staff will run validation trials to determine bi-product recovery yields, throughput rates, vortex gate and air volume settings.

Validation Studies will be completed five working days after receipt of the sample.

Do you guarantee your equipment and installations?

Yes, we offer a Complete 100% Satisfaction Guarantee. In fact, we offer the only one of it’s kind in the industry. Click the link about to learn more.

What Geographical Area do you service?

Our installation technicians provide complete service throughout Canada and the United States. In most cases, we will supervise local tradesmen during the installation and commissioning process.

Our technician will stay to train your operators to ensure a trouble-free, rapid deployment of the “Air Wash Material Separation System.”

Are There Any Types of Materials or Processes ACS Technology Isn’t Ideal For?

Although our technology is extremely effective in the vast majority or material processing applications, we advise against using it to process anything wet, or in a wet environment. ACS technology is designed to work in a dry environment with dry materials.
