Low-Profile, Sanitary Screener Achieves High Rates
Millburn, NJ — A new Low-Profile, FLO-THRUTMSanitary Screener from Kason Corporation scalps oversize particles and foreign matter from dry bulk materials and solids-laden slurries at high rates in low headroom areas, it was announced by Henry Alamzad, President.
The screener employs two unbalanced-weight gyratory motors mounted on opposing exterior sidewalls of the screening chamber, instead of one motor positioned beneath it, reducing minimum height requirements significantly.
Mounted on suspension springs, the FLO-THRU design also allows vertical alignment of the top inlet and bottom outlet, allowing on-size material to rapidly descend through the screen in a straight-through path at high rates into downstream equipment or receiving vessels. Oversize material is ejected through a spout at the periphery of the screen.
The unit is available in diameters from 18 to 100 in. (460 to 2540 mm) with interchangeable screens that allow sifting of on-size materials as fine as 38 microns (400 mesh).
All material contact surfaces are of stainless steel with continuous welds polished to cGMP, 3-A, USDA, BISSC, FDA or industrial 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.
