New Centrifugal Screener Includes Clean-In-Place Spray Balls
Kason Corp. has launched a new Centri-Sifter centrifugal screener with a three-bearing shaft that cantilevers for quick removal of internal components.
External roller bearings located at the motor end of the shaft and on a hinged cover at the discharge end provide 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.
The unit comes equipped with Clean-In-Place spray balls for rapid sanitizing using steam or cleaning solution. It is stainless-steel finished to industrial, 3-A, FDA, BISSC and other sanitary standards and is equipped with a stainless-steel motor.
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.
