A new Low-Profile, Flo-Thru Sanitary Screener from Kason scalps oversize particles and foreign matter from dry bulk materials and solids-laden slurries at high rates in low headroom areas.

The screener uses two unbalanced weight gyratory motors mounted on opposing exterior sidewalls of the screening chamber instead of one motor positioned beneath it, reducing minimum height requirements significantly, according to the company. The screener’s design is mounted on suspension springs and allows vertical alignment of the top inlet and bottom outlet, enabling on-size material to rapidly descend through the screen in a straight-through path at high rates into downstream equipment or receiving vessels. Oversize material is ejected through a spout at the periphery of the screen. 

The unit is available in a diameter range of 460 to 2540 mm with interchangeable screens that allow sifting of on-size materials as fine as 38 microns (400 mesh). Quick-release clamps allow rapid removal of screens and tool-free disassembly of frames for thorough wash down of components (including the motors), as well as rapid interior access for inspection and screen changes. All material contact surfaces are of stainless steel with continuous welds polished to cGMP, FDA, or industrial standards.
