Sanitary Sifter's Two Motors Reduce Height
A new "Flo-Thru" sanitary sifter model K40-1FT-SS from Kason reduces height requirements while increasing screening capacity. The low-profile configuration employs two unbalanced-weight gyratory motors mounted on opposing exterior sidewalls of the unit, instead of one motor positioned beneath the screening chamber. This can reduce height significantly.
On-size particles pass through the 40-inch (1016 mm) diameter screen in a vertical straight-through discharge path at higher rates than with circular screeners having a centrally mounted gyratory motor and horizontal discharge paths, according to Kason. Oversize material exits through a side discharge spout.
All material contact surfaces and the floor stand are stainless steel with continuous welds polished to cGMP, 3-A, USDA and FDA standards. Quick-release clamps allow rapid removal of screens and tool-free disassembly of frames for thorough wash down, inspection and screen changes.
Intended to scalp oversize particles through a screen mesh as fine as 38 microns (400 mesh) from dry bulk materials or solids-laden slurries, the screener is available in diameters of 18 to 84 inches (457 to 2134 mm) and can be furnished with a dust-tight cover.
