• Automated or semi-automated. Automated when the material is placed near the air depression automatically due to the path followed when falling from a conveyor. Semi-automated when the material is placed near the air depression manually in a sorting cabin. • According to the separation system used for the material selected from the air current, three devices can be differentiated: › Air and material separation by a cyclone chamber: the mixture of air and suctioned material is supplied tangentially to the top part of the cyclone. A downward circular current is created inside the chamber that decants the selected material at the bottom. This system is increasingly being abandoned. › Air and material separation by passing the current through a revolving circular mesh: The material suspended in the current is trapped by the circular mesh. When this mesh turns, it carries the materials away from the current, decanting them onto a conveyor belt. This system is also in disuse. › Air and material separation with an alveolar valve: the current with suctioned material is led through a circular perforated system in motion, located inside a vacuum chamber. The material in suspension is decanted at the bottom of the chamber as it is subjected to a depression in the air current. 4 Pneumatic separator 4. Automatic suction mouth in conveyor drop.
