Low-Profile Screener Employs Two Screening Decks
A new Vibroscreen Flo-Thru low profile screener from Kason Corp. classifies bulk material into three fractions at high rates. It employs two screening decks and two unbalanced-weight gyratory motors mounted on opposing exterior sidewalls of the unit instead of one motor positioned beneath the screening chamber, reducing minimum height requirements significantly.
The design also allows for vertical alignment of the top inlet and bottom outlet, allowing the smallest fraction to descend through the screener in a straight-through path at high rates. The larger fractions are ejected through spouts at the peripheries of the coarse-mesh upper screen and fine-mesh bottom screen.
The Flo-Thru design comes in diameters of 18 to 84 inches (460 to 2135 mm) and available to 3-A, FDA, BISSC and other sanitary standards, as well as to UL, ATEX, CSA and CE electrical standards.
Quick-disconnect clamp ring assemblies allow for removal of screen frames for inspection, cleaning and screen changes. An optional Air-Lift device pneumatically raises either of the upper two screen frames, enabling one operator to rapidly perform what was previously a two-person task, depending on screen diameter.
