Equipment Snapshot: The Kason Kek-Gardner high-capacity centrifugal sifter model K1350C removes oversize foreign matter and agglomerates from on-size material at rates up to 100 tons per hour on a continuous basis, according to Kason Corp. The model features an easy-to-clean, cantilevered, three-bearing shaft design with bearings at the motor end of the shaft and on the exterior of the discharge end cover, providing maximum support for heavy loads. An exclusive “forward and lift” access door improves interior access for cleaning, inspection and maintenance. The sifter can be configured for gravity-fed applications, or dilute-phase positive- or negative-pressure in-line pneumatic systems. Screen cylinders are available with nylon monofilament, woven wire, perforated plate or wedge wire screen. Available in industrial and sanitary construction, the centrifugal sifter is suitable for bulk food, chemical and mineral applications, including those involving frequent screen changes or material changeovers where cross-contamination must be prevented. In addition to sifting dry materials, the screener can reduce soft agglomerates and/or dewater moist solids or slurries.
