How does it work?

High velocity air passes through the concentrator creating an electrostatic charge to attract gold and other metalliferous values. The hot air from the engine is ducted into the radial blower, preheating the air and concentrator to 50 degrees above ambient making it possible to process a higher capacity of material and increases the electrostatic charge. An adjustable oscillation system creates increased vibration and air flow at lower engine speeds which increases fine gold production, especially in damp ground conditions. Equipped with an extra large hopper for greater capacity while steeper sides prevent material build up. The folding frame makes this model a dream for quick and easy set up.

 

Some other new patented features of the Keene 151s dry washer also include:


“Soft Bed Technology”: creates greater electrostatic charged recovery bed.

“Scrubbing Pins”:  for early separation of material and even flow before entry into the recovery tray.

“New Improved Vibrator System”: creating greater vibration at lower engine speeds for increased gold production.


“Blast Gate Technology”:  enables the user to make fine adjustments to vibration and air pressure in the recovery container. As the Material is shoveled into the concentrator into a large classifying hopper it automatically classifies the material, allowing only small gravel (approximately 3/8ths. of an inch) to enter the concentrator.


“Vibration Transfer Bumpers”:
 The folding support legs are now equipped with these transfer bumpers that will transfer energy to the hopper. This vibration assists in moving larger material off the screen faster and eliminating the need to physically drag away excess material from the hopper.  The material is then processed evenly through the recovery tray. The nonmagnetic gold and values are attracted magnetically to electrostatic charged special cloth that lines the recovery tray.

Why use a drywasher?  The name of the game with gold prospecting is moving material.  The more you move, the more opportunity to find gold and more of it.  Using a drywasher (AKA dry sluice) allows gold prospecting to take place in high volumes in dry areas without the need for water.  Keene drywashers are reliable and built to last.  The Keene 151 drywasher specifically is one of the largest on the market.
