Kason Corporation’s Vibro-Air size/density separator simultaneously employs vibratory screening and airflow to remove fines and chaff from grain products. Material fed through a port on the unit’s hood cascades over a series of strategically placed internal trays, and then onto a vibrating, fine mesh screen that moves on-size material in controlled flow patterns toward and through a discharge port at the screen’s periphery. Heavier fines pass through the screen onto a chute leading to a lower discharge spout. The separator is available in 24 to 100 in. diameter carbon steel or stainless steel finished to 3-A, cGMP, USDA, FDA or industrial standards. The separator is available as a standalone unit or a complete system integrated with a dust collection system, exhaust fan and electrical controls on a mobile frame.
