How a Centrifugal Sifter Works & it’s Applications

Sieving is a simple technique for separating particles of different sizes. You can do this with a manual sieving screen, a flat deck or with a centrifugal sifter. The differences on how a centrifugal sifter works:

The main benefits of a centrifugal sifter, in comparison to the flat deck, is that the centrifugal form has a higher capacity rate per screen area, it is faster at processing, much lower in noise and includes static / flexible connections. It is easier to clean and maintain, and when it comes to the Kemutec KEK sifter, it also benefits from a Cantilever Design for maximum hygienic processing. This is achieved through the machine’s easy access and rapid screen change functionality, averaging at just 30 seconds.

How Sieving Separates Material:

Using Kemutec’s KEK Sifter, as shown in the image above, material is transported into the sifter through a feeder and essentially, product is screened and sieved, allowing over-sized material to be removed and discharged. The material and size of the screen used within the sifter, is determined by the material being processed and the desired outcome i.e. how fine the material needs to be. A paddle assembly ensures an advanced hygienic view, whilst a hinged interlocking door also provides simple inspection.
