Sanitary, Quick-Clean Centrifugal Screener

July 14, 2011

New Centri-Sifter® centrifugal screener features a three-bearing shaft that cantilevers for quick removal of internal components. External roller bearings located at the motor end of the shaft and on a hinged cover at the discharge end provide maximum support and vibration-free operation under heavy loads. When the hinged end cover is open, the shaft cantilevers on a third externally-mounted roller bearing located between the motor-end bearing and material feed point, allowing internal components to slide freely from the opposite shaft end. Equipped with Clean-In-Place (CIP) Spray Balls for rapid sanitizing using steam or cleaning solution, the unit is constructed of stainless steel finished to industrial, 3-A, FDA, BISSC, and other sanitary standards, and is equipped with a stainless steel motor. It is intended for food, dairy and pharmaceutical applications requiring thorough washdown, as well as general chemical applications involving frequent screen changes/inspections or runs of multiple materials with no cross contamination.
