#### CONSTRUCTION OF INDUSTRIAL SIEVE COMPARTMENT

ABSTRACT

The aim of this project is to fabricate an industrial sieve compartment which is capable of separating solid particles of various sizes.

The construction was carried out in order to analyze the sizes of particles.

The component parts of the set of sieve and their dimensions are as follows:

Height of sieveÂ Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â  –Â Â Â Â Â Â  300mm

No of sieveÂ Â Â Â Â Â Â Â  –Â Â Â Â Â Â  4

Diameter of sieveÂ Â Â Â Â Â Â  –Â Â Â Â Â Â  300mm

Shape of sieveÂ Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â  –Â Â Â Â Â Â  Circular

Height of sieve setÂ Â Â Â Â Â  –Â Â Â Â Â Â  900mm

Mesh/hole sizesÂ Â  –Â Â Â Â Â Â  top â€“ 6.0mm, 2ndÂ â€“ 5.0mm 3rdÂ  – 3.0mm, bottom 1.0mm respectively.

In construction of sieve compartment, some factors were taken into consideration and they are:

–Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â The capacity of the sieve

–Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â The type of material to be used for constructing sieve

–Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â The availability of the material

–Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â The type of mixture that can be filtered in it

–Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Cost which is the determinant factor in fabrication of any equipment.

These factors listed helped greatly in completion of this project.

At the end of the fabrication, a sieve equipment was constructed with specified dimensions.

1.1Â Â Â Â Â Â Â BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY

Generally all Chemical Engineering mostly deals with the construction of sieve among other construction in order to fulfill the theory of separation technique.

Industrial sieve compartment is a kind of machine fabricated to be used in separating solid particles.Â  The sieving equipment works by allowing solid particles of different sizes to pass through the pores or the aperture which consist of orderly, arranged sets of sieves in a manner of the particle sizes and shapes.Â  Basically sieve equipments consist of a set of sieves preferably with the quality of shocker in accordance with its speed range.

The sieve equipment operates best when the solid particles is in their coarse and fine form.Â  The equipment has high sensitive efficiency, but only few have been constructed since the development of separation of particles.Â  This is as a result of the losses incurred and the procedure involved and also the labour needed to clean the sieve plate and to handle the sieve equipment.
