Low-profile sifter

February 1, 2011




Kason’s Model K40-1FT-SS Flo-Thru sanitary sifter reduces height requirements while increasing screening capacity. The low-profile configuration employs two unbalanced-weight gyratory motors mounted on opposing exterior sidewalls of the unit, instead of one motor positioned beneath the screening chamber. On-size particles pass rapidly through the 40-in. (1016mm) diameter screen in a vertical, straight-through discharge path. Intended to scalp oversize particles through a screen mesh as fine as 38 microns (400 mesh) from dry bulk materials or solids-laden slurries, the screener is available in diameters from 18 to 84 in. (457 to 2,134mm).
