Centrifugal Dewatering Screener


Kason's adjustable, inclined Centri-SifterTM centrifugal dewatering screener with a non-traditional internal feed auger extracts significantly more moisture than conventional screeners while increasing capacity.

Unlike horizontal units that rely on short augers to feed moisture-laden material into a cylindrical screening chamber, and rotating paddles to centrifugally dewater the solids and propel them through the chamber, the dewatering screener can be inclined up to 40° to increase the dwell time of material within the chamber, and accordingly, the drainage rate of free liquid. Raising the outlet end of the cylindrical chamber also causes moisture to remain near the downhill inlet of the cylindrical screen increasing the dryness of the discharged solids.

A full length, low-pitched auger moves high loadings of material into and through the inclined cylinder longitudinally, while the rotating high-pitched paddles impart centrifugal force, moving the material in a spiral path through the cylinder.

Cylindrical screens are available in woven nylon, monofilament or stainless steel, and in stainless steel wedgewire, to accommodate a wide range of materials and capacities.

The unit offers a large inspection door for two-minute screen changes and thorough wash down of all smooth interior surfaces, and is available to industrial, food, dairy and pharmaceutical standards.
