Kason Centrifugal Sifter Safety and Installation
The Kason Centrifugal Sifter is designed to operate only as a closed system, with products fed into the machine thorough an inlet pipe attached to the inlet of the Centri-Sifter, and is sold based on the representation that you will attach your own inlet pipe to the Centri-Sifter inlet. The attachment of the inlet pipe to the inlet is designed to serve as a guard against possible bodily injury.
THE FAILURE TO ATTACH YOUR INLET PIPE TO THE KASON CENTRIFUGAL SIFTER INLET, AND TO OPERATE THE MACHINE IN SUCH A MANNER, CAN CREATE A DANGEROUS SITUATION AND RESULT IN POSSIBLE BODILY INJURY FROM CONTACT WITH MOVING MACHINE PARTS LOCATED INSIDE THE CENTRIFUGAL SIFTER INLET.
