Abstract: The goal of this work is investigate the use of air jigging to separate out concrete from brick and impurities (gypsum, wood and paper). The mixture of aggregates and impurities were comminuted individually in the size range 12 to 20 mm. The tests were performed with a base mixture of concrete and brick, in which was added increasing amounts of impurities for each trial (1%, 2.5% and 5% mass). During the tests, high contents of concrete in concentrates were reached. The results give good perspectives in relation to industrial application of air jigging in a recycling plant.
