Oversized grain solids exit through downspouting into an enclosed container. Recovered liquid (sour mash) gravity feeds through the center discharge, is stored and added to subsequent fermentation batches.
The Centri-Sifter centrifugal sifter at the distillery runs at a higher voltage than normal in order to screen heavy, sludgy stillage.
The sifter cleans easily as the front access door (left) opens for internal components to slide from a cantilevered shaft. The top access port permits quick rinse of the screen.
Dewatered grain (stillage) having approximately 80% moisture content is utilized for animal feed.
