German term or phrase: Luftsetztischen
Die stoffliche Trennung
Das Gemisch wird nach Korngrößen getrennt und nicht eisenhaltige Metallpartikel werden aussortiert. Dann werden Gummi, Glas und PVC auf Luftsetztischen und Lochplatten getrennt. Das PVC wird danach auf einheitliche Korngröße gebracht, gereinigt und nach Farben getrennt.

I imagine these to be those vibrating pneumatic filters used to separate grain sizes, but I wonder if anyone has come across the correct technical term?

gravity tables
Explanation:
See this link for an explanation and picture. According to the explanation, air is used to fluidize the grains so the heavy ones fall to the bottom and are removed.

You may find more vocabulary here.
