Sanitary, Low Profile Sifter

March 31, 2011
The new “Flo-Thru” Sanitary Sifter model K40-1FT-SS 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. On-size 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. Oversize material exits through a side discharge spout. All material contact surfaces, and the floor stand, are of stainless steel with continuous welds polished to cGMP, 3-A, USDA and FDA standards. Quick-release clamps allow rapid removal of screens and tool-free disassembly of frames for thorough wash down, inspection and screen changes.
