After we sold thousands of our famous first-generation FL-2000 case cleaners, customers who had purchased them began asking us to address the problem of separating the cleaned and polished brass from the cleaning media.
We knew from the beginning that the simplest method of separating would be a rotating squirrel cage, but we had to find a design we could manufacture economically. Our problem was that it had to be BIG -- big enough to handle the entire load of the FL-2000-series case cleaners.
The solution was an injection molded reversible part. Simple, and it works great. The CM-2000 Case/Media Separator is large, 10" x 14", and will hold more than 1,600 .38 Special cases. It sits on a large media collection tub that measures 18" x 22". The tub keeps the mess off the floor and bench. It's fast -- so fast it will remove media from 1500 rounds of .223 brass in a matter of seconds.
The CM-500 Case/Media Separator is scaled down in size and designed to handle the load of a CV-500 Case Cleaner. This piece of equipment are every bit as tough as its full-sized counterpart. We used the same materials in its construction and designed it to work just as hard -- and do it in a more compact area!
