A FEASIBILITY STUDY OF A TECHNIQUE FOR SORTING PARTICLES BY SHAPE

THE SHAPE OF SOLID PARTICLES IS IMPORTANT IN BOTH THEIR PHYSICAL AND CHEMICAL BEHAVIOR. THERE ARE APPARENTLY NO CONVENIENT METHODS OR COMMERCIALLY AVAILABLE EQUIPMENT FOR SORTING PARTICLES BY SHAPE. A BRIEF EXPERIMENTAL STUDY HAS BEEN CARRIED OUT TO EXPLORE THE FEASIBILITY OF SORTING PARTICLES BY SHAPE USING STANDARD SIEVING EQUIPMENT AND A TECHNIQUE BASED ON THE PREMISE THAT ELONGATED PARTICLES PASS THROUGH A SIEVE AT A SLOWER RATE THAN DO SHORT PARTICLES OF THE SAME MINIMUM DIMENSION. THE STUDY INDICATES THE PREMISE TO BE TRUE AND THAT SUCH A TECHNIQUE IS FEASIBLE. RECOMMENDATIONS ARE OFFERED FOR DIRECTION OF EFFORT CONSIDERED NECESSARY TO DEVELOP DETAILED METHODS FOR PROVIDING A PARTICLE SHAPE SEPARATION TECHNIQUE SUITABLE FOR ROUTINE SIEVING TECHNIQUES. /AUTHOR/
