‘Flo-Thru’ Sanitary Sifter
Kason Corporation November 22, 2010
A new “Flo-Thru” Sanitary Sifter from Kason Corporation 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, reducing overall height significantly. Particles pass rapidly through the 40 inch diameter screen in a vertical straight-through discharge path at higher rates than with circular screeners having a centrally mounted gyratory motor and horizontal discharge paths. 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 offered in diameters from 18 to 84 in. (457 to 2134 mm) and can be furnished with a dust-tight cover.
