Tech/Engineering / sand washing and separating plant
German term or phrase: Düsenboden
In der Waschzone sorgt ein spezieller Düsenboden für eine impulsartige Aufwärtsströmung und
Verwirbelung des Sediments. Bestandteile mit
geringem spezifischem Gewicht werden durch diese aktive Aufstromklassierung nach oben transportiert. Schwere Teile lagern sich nach unten ab. Durch die Turbulenzen und die mechanische Zirkulation im Sandbett werden organische Anhaftungen gelöst, in den oberen Bereich des Waschbehälters hoch-
geschwemmt, über den Ablaufstutzen „Organik“
abgeschieden und dem Klärprozess zugeführt.

In the washing area a special nozzle bottom causes a pulsed upflow and vortexing of the sediment. Items with low specific weight are transported upwards by this active upflow classification. Heavy materials get deposited on the bottom. Because of the turbulence and mechanical circulation in the sandbed, organic adhesions are broken up, washed to the top area of the washing container, discharged through the organic matter drain pipe and then fed to the clearing process.

I'm not happy with nozzle bottom.

Here's how the plant functions:
The feeder brings the sediment-water mixture to the collection container. From the collection container the buffer sediment is added to the washing area through a shaftless screw conveyor.

DeVries, GE Tech & Engr Dict.
I looked up Boden in this dico and found "plate" among other definitions.
I guess "nozzles" is fine but jets seems to fit better.
