New round separator increases safety, improves maintenance

December 10, 2007

The MX Separator increases safety and improves clean-up and maintenance as it provides a standard global presence for the round separator. The totally enclosed weight guard prevents “reach-in” injuries and complies with European CE Standards. Making use of the appropriate motor, the MX also complies with ATEX Standards. The open base construction allows for cleaning underneath the unit, therefore preventing dirt and product build-up to occur. Additionally, the MX base design eliminates all gussets and external crevices where product can become trapped while allowing for total external polishing of the machine. These features allow for a more sanitary designed separator. The open construction scheme also allows for easier inspection and cleaning of the separator’s underside. Angled support springs minimize aggressive vibration that typically occurs during shutdown of the machine. The extremely rugged construction of this machine utilizes conical construction rather than flat plates which creates a more rigid geometric structure. This concept has been successfully tested and proven through millions of high G life cycles.
