Screen within a smaller footprint

A new Centri-Sifter Twin ultra-high-capacity centrifugal screener matches the capacity of two individual high-capacity screeners within a smaller footprint, according to Kason Corp., Millburn, N.J.
A feed splitter evenly divides the flow of incoming feed material into the two horizontally oriented cylindrical screening chambers that operate in parallel. A shaft in each screening chamber rotates a helical paddle assembly that accelerates the radial movement of particles against the screen.
On-size particles pass through apertures in the screens and fall through a cone-shaped discharge chute. Oversize particles are propelled through the open end of the screen cylinders and ejected through a discharge spout.
