Kason’s most recent launch of the model XO-B centrifugal sifter is followed by their newest launch, the MOB-DD-SS dual-drive CENTRI-SIFTER centrifugal sifter.

The GG-0696US allows independent speed control of the feed screw and helical paddle assembly, allowing each to be adjusted separately according to characteristics of individual materials for maximizing feed control into the sifter and for optimum efficiency and capacity.

The speed of the variable feed screw can be entered remotely or by an operator at the control panel to feed material into the horizontal screen cylinder consistently at the desired controlled rate without the need for a separate feeding device, as required for repeatable sifting performance.

The rotation speed of the helical paddles, which never touch the screen, can be adjusted to accelerate material against and through apertures in the screen cylinder at speeds sufficient to break down agglomerates and achieve desired throughput.

The unit is capable of sifting dry or moist chemical, mineral, food, dairy or pharmaceutical products including those containing soft agglomerates, at rates to 27 tonnes/h. Mounted on a heavy-duty mobile frame, the machine can be rolled between processing lines and wash down stations as needed.

It is available constructed with material contact surfaces of 304 or 316 stainless steel, or in all-stainless steel finished to sanitary or industrial standards, with explosion proof electrical systems, including ATEX compliant.
