Centrifugal Screener Cantilevers for Quick Cleaning
The medium-capacity Centri-Sifter centrifugal screener model “MO” features a cantilevered shaft with two, externally-mounted bearings between the screening chamber and motor drive, allowing all internals to slide freely from the shaft end for cleaning, screen changes, or inspection. Wide spacing between the bearings, a large diameter shaft, and a flexible shaft coupling combine to prevent vibration, even at high speeds under heavy, imbalanced loads, according to the company. Configurations are offered for continuous operation in-line with dilute-phase pneumatic conveying systems, as well as gravity-fed applications. Opening a hinged door at the discharge end of the screening chamber allows a retainer plate, screen cylinder, and helical paddle/feed screw assembly to be removed in one minute, says the company.
