Centrifugal Sifter is used to sift, scalp, de-lump and de-water virtually any bulk solid or slurry. Material is fed into the feed inlet and redirected into the cylindrical sifting chamber by means of a feed screw. Rotating, helical paddles within the chamber continuously propel the material against the screen, while the resultant, centrifugal force on the particles accelerates them through the apertures. These rotating paddles, which never make contact with the screen, also serve to breakup soft agglomerates. Over-sized particles and trash are ejected via the oversize discharge spout.
VK Industries have developed a centrifugal sifter which is versatile, with high capacity, is compact and cost effective. This equipment is the ideal choice for continuous scalping of dry or moist materials, even those that tend to ball or agglomerate as these units de-lump and de-agglomerate while screening. The Centrifugal Sifter is also extremely effective as a liquid/solids separator.
