Two-bearing centrifugal screener cantilevers for quick cleaning

September 10, 2009

The centrifugal screener features a cantilevered shaft with two, externally-mounted bearings between the screening chamber and motor drive, allowing all internals to slide freely from the shaft end for cleaning, screen changes or inspection. Wide spacing between the bearings, a large diameter shaft, and a flexible shaft coupling combine to prevent vibration, even at high speeds under heavy, imbalanced loads. Intended for food, dairy, pharmaceutical and other contamination-sensitive applications requiring thorough wash-down, frequent screen changes/inspections or runs of multiple materials. Available to USDA, FDA, BISSC, 3-A, and other sanitary standards. Continuous operation in-line with dilute-phase pneumatic conveying systems, as well as gravity-fed applications.
