Screener Handles Wet And Dry Solids With High Oversize Fractions
Kason Corp.’s new vibratory screener model K72-1K-SS discharges oversize particles 360 degrees around the periphery of an "External Kascade" circular screening deck. The screener, a 72 inches (1829 mm) diameter Vibroscreen model, is intended for screening of wet or dry bulk materials containing a large percentage of oversize fractions. As material is fed onto the center of the screening deck, on-size particles pass through the screen and funnel through a lower discharge chute.
Oversize particles flow outward in a spiral pattern and cascade at any point over the periphery of the circular screen onto a spiral vibratory trough that directs the material into a high capacity discharge spout. Typical applications include removal of fines from products such as plastic pellets, cereal, pet food, fertilizer, salt and sugar, as well as dewatering large amounts of solids.
The special screening deck is offered on any of the company's Vibroscreen separators ranging from 40 to 72 inches (1016 to 1829 mm) in diameter and is available as a retrofit kit for any make of circular vibratory screener. The upper portion of the circular screen frame is tapered to reduce the diameter and weight of the dust cover for easy handling.
A range of accessories is available including clean-in-place spray heads, anti-blinding devices, articulated lids for rapid screen changes and an automatic long-term lubrication system for gyratory motor bearings.
