Classifier Separates Material Into Three Fractions

Dec. 20, 2011
Unit is equipped with sanitary epoxy-mounted screens.

Kason introduces the Vibroscreen Two-Deck Sanitary Classifier, which is capable of separating up to six tons per hour of bulk solid material into three fractions. Measuring 30 inches (762 mm) in diameter, the unit classifies bulk chemicals, minerals, plastics, foods, dairy products, pharmaceuticals and other materials ranging from dry bulk solids to solids-laden slurries.

Made of stainless steel with ground and polished welds, the Vibroscreen is equipped with sanitary epoxy-mounted screens and features quick-disconnect clamps between each screen frame to offer interior access for inspection, screen changes and wash down. An optional air-lift device pneumatically raises any of the screen frames, enabling one operator to perform what was previously a two-person task.

The dust-tight, gravity-fed unit contains two horizontal screens located one above the other in a vertical, cylindrical housing supported on a circular base by rugged springs. An imbalanced weight gyratory motor affixed to the housing imparts vibration. It can operate on a batch or continuous basis, and is equipped with sanitary anti-blinding ball tray assemblies under both screen decks to dislodge near-size particles from screen apertures.

Other options include Clean-In-Place (CIP) spray nozzles and automatic lubrication systems. The classifier is offered in diameters from 18 inches to 100 inches (460 mm to 2,540 mm), and is available to 3-A, FDA, BISSC and other sanitary standards, as well as to UL, ATEX, CSA and CE electrical standards.
