The Fluid Dynamics Expedition is the workhorse of our sluice product line combining compact design with material processing speed. Measuring just under 24″ long and weighing only 4.1 lbs, it defines portable power! It is capable of processing up to 8-10 buckets per hour or more (depending on time for classifying material), yet is compact enough to be strapped to a standard backpack frame.
The Expedition features patented fluid dynamics technology that washes material as it enters the trap providing a thorough and complete separation and extraction of heavy materials. It also incorporates a “pass-through” water system that eliminates clogging issues that plague fluid bed systems. Another key feature is the flip-up material tray cover that allows you to visually inspect the trap or easily clean your Expedition sluice into a pan and reset it back into the stream in less than a minute!
The Fluid Dynamics Expedition Sluice is made of tough ABS construction and is made for serious prospecting by three or more people.
