SANITARY, QUICK-CLEAN CENTRIFUGAL SCREENER

STAFFORDSHIRE, UK— A new Centri-Sifter® centrifugal screener from Kason features a three-bearing shaft that cantilevers for quick removal of internal components, according to Henry Alamzad, President.

External roller bearings located at the motor end of the shaft and on a hinged cover at the discharge end provide maximum support and vibration-free operation under heavy loads. When the hinged end cover is open, the shaft cantilevers on a third externally-mounted roller bearing located between the motor-end bearing and material feed point, allowing internal components to slide freely from the opposite shaft end.

Equipped with Clean-In-Place (CIP) Spray Balls for rapid sanitising using steam or cleaning solution, the unit is constructed of stainless steel finished to industrial, 3-A, FDA, BISSC, and other sanitary standards, and is equipped with a stainless steel motor. It is intended for food, dairy and pharmaceutical applications requiring thorough wash-down, as well as general chemical applications involving frequent screen changes/inspections or runs of multiple materials with no cross contamination.

Dry or moist bulk solid material is gravity-fed into the horizontally-oriented cylindrical screening chamber fitted with heavy-duty wedgewire screen. A rotating helical paddle assembly accelerates the radial movement of particles against the screen causing on-size particles to pass through apertures in the screens and fall through a cone-shaped discharge chute. Oversize particles are propelled through the open end of the screen cylinder and ejected through a discharge spout.

In addition to sifting and scalping of dry bulk materials, the screener can break up soft agglomerates and/or dewater moist solids or slurries.

The company also manufactures centrifugal screeners with two-bearing cantilevered shafts, as well as circular vibratory screeners and fluid bed dryers, coolers and moisturisers.
