Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9960914A1] A method and a device for separating granules from a return flow of a cleaning fluid being a mixture of a liquid and granules having a higher density than the liquid, the return flow appearing through a treatment chamber (1) and a tank (6) below the treatment chamber (1) in a washing machine having at least one granule collector (11), a primary pumping device (7) pumping the mixture through a first discharge pipe (5) and through first nozzles (4) against goods (2), and a secondary pumping device (18) pumping liquid only against the goods (2). The granules are collected in a lower part of the tank (6) in a self-contained detachable granule collector (11). The mixture from within the self-contained detachable granule collector (11) and the liquid only is obtained from a position in the tank (6) outside the self-contained detachable granule colletor (11). The liquid pumped by the secondary pumping device (18) is directed through a second discharge pipe (9) and second nozzles (10), at least the second nozzles (10) being designed for a lower flow than the first nozzles (4).
