Mill Upgrades Separator to increase Capacity
Kruger took its problem to Kason's engineers who recommended adding a second screen above the existing one as a modular component to upgrade the vibratory separator to a multi-deck Recycle Clarifier.
As a result of the modification, the bottleneck was broken and clay coating and production improved 40%. Screen life turned out to be very satisfactory.
The original Kason vibratory screener was a simple deck machine fitted with Kleen-Screen™ rings to prevent screen blinding. A second screen with rings was added in series with the original so that in one operation using the same operating space, the screening area was doubled.
The clay is fed to the center of the top screen. Oversized particles move to the screen periphery where a recycle system discharges them to the lower screen. Undersized particles and liquids rapidly pass through the operating screens and are forwarded to process.
