I was hoping that GollyMisterScience and leadshot would comment further on this device based off the old topic

Anyone ever seen this gravity concentrator before ?

We were still waiting to see if GMS got a full review done and I was still waiting to see if leadshot got his working.  I was also wondering if anyone got a pump to work with it so it can be used by just one person.

Thank you.

My ecologics buddies seem to have dropped off the radar so I am not sure of commercial units are still being made.
As for a pump the only one that worked at all for me was a diaphram pump but I had to throttle it down to dead slow.
A lot will depend on what you need to do but a jigging action of some sort can be really helpful when dealing with a lot of heavies that can compromise a sluice. You are still left with dealing with an increased heavy mineral load in your cons but the nice thing is that you will usually also have an increased gold return.
I am currently working on a design that can be home built fro standard parts and run either with a baby motorized diaphram pump or a hand pump. Hope to test some prototypes this summer. Its on the list anyway....a looooonnnnggg list.
What the heck - lets just keep mixin' stuff together till it blows up or smells REALLY bad!

That would be cool to see.  Thank you for the reply and I will keep an eye out next summer for your new design
