The new Centri-Sifter® twin ultra-high-capacity centrifugal screener introduced by Kason Corp. matches the capacity of two individual high-capacity screeners within a smaller footprint, while cantilevered three-bearing shafts allow for rapid sanitizing. Dry or moist bulk solid material is gravity-fed through a feed splitter to evenly divide the flow of incoming material into the two horizontally-oriented cylindrical screening chambers, which operate in parallel.
A shaft in each screening chamber rotates a helical paddle assembly that accelerates the radial movement of particles against the screen. On-size particles pass through apertures in the screens and fall through a cone-shaped discharge chute, while oversize particles are propelled through the open end of the screen cylinders and ejected through a discharge spout. Each of the screening chambers features a sliding end cover and three-bearing shaft that cantilevers for quick removal of internal components.
External roller bearings are located at the motor end of the shaft and on a sliding cover at the discharge end for maximum support and vibration-free operation. When the end cover is hinged open, the shaft becomes a cantilever supported by a third externally-mounted roller bearing located between the motor-end bearing and the material feed point, allowing internal components to slide freely from the opposite shaft end for thorough wash-down.
