Centrifugal Sifter Provides High-Capacity, Cost-Efficient Screening
Designed to meet high-capacity sifting for bulk load-in/load-out and larger process applications, the Rotex Centrifugal Sifter proves its cost efficiency daily in handling a wide variety of powders, granules, agglomerates and other free-flowing materials.Processed particles ranging in size from ¼" to 44 microns (325 mesh) are scalped with ease. The combination of high centrifugal force and blade spreading action reduce binding problems, even when handling materials that tend to flake or agglomerate due to fat or moisture content. Centrifugal sifter units meet big job needs too. Rotex offers the largest capacity centrifugal scalpers in the industry today. Rotex Centrifugal Sifters are ideal for sizing, sifting, scalping, classifying, breaking of agglomerates, and product conditioning applications.Some of the advantages of the Rotex Centrifugal Sifter over conventional types of screening equipment are:
  • The rotating blades' spreading action distributes product around the sieve cylinder for complete utilization of screen area and conveys oversize particles to discharge.

  • Accelerated particles impinging against the sieve causes it to vibrate and clean itself.

  • Totally enclosed centrifugal sifter eliminates dust problems.

  • Unit operates quietly, with no motion or vibration to surrounding structures.

  • High centrifugal force provides more throughput capacity per screen cloth area used than conventional screening equipment.

  • Large, quick opening access doors provide easy access to sieve chamber and to all internal working parts.

  • Changing or replacing screens takes minutes with no tools required.
