MILLBURN, NJ — A new Ultra Sanitary Sifter model K30-1FT-SS from Kason Corporation minimizes height requirements while increasing screening capacity, it was announced by Henry Alamzad, president.
An extra low profile version of the company's Vibroscreen® "Flo-Thru" design, the sifter employs two unbalanced-weight gyratory motors mounted on opposing exterior sidewalls of the unit, instead of one motor positioned beneath the screening chamber, reducing overall height significantly.
On-size particles pass rapidly through the 30 in. (762 mm) diameter screen in a vertical straight-through discharge path at higher rates than with
circular screeners having a centrally mounted gyratory motor and horizontal discharge paths. Oversize material exits through a side discharge spout.
All material contact surfaces, and the floor stand, are of stainless steel with continuous welds polished to cGMP, 3-A, USDA and FDA standards. Quick-release clamps allow rapid removal of screens and tool-free disassembly of frames for thorough wash down of components (including the motors), as well as rapid interior access for inspection and screen changes.
Intended to scalp oversize particles through a screen mesh as fine as 38 microns (400 mesh) from dry bulk
materials or solids-laden slurries, the screener is offered in diameters from 18 to 84 in. (457 to 2134 mm) and can be furnished with a dust-tight cover.
