Munson Machinery launched a new centrifugal sifter, MUNSIFTER™. The equipment can sift, scalp and de-agglomerate bulk solid materials at high rates free of vibration or product degradation.
This machine is often used to sift flour, baking soda, granulated sugar, cocoa powder and/or powdered confectioner’s sugar to remove foreign particles or unwanted material, or as a final sifting step before packaging.
Material fed by an auger into a stationary horizontal screen cylinder is propelled by rotating paddles against the screen, with on-size particles passing through screen apertures into a discharge chute, and oversize materials spiraling through the cylinder and into a discharge port.
The clean, simple design features external bearings at both shaft ends which can be lubricated through external fittings.
The bearing at the discharge end of the shaft is mounted on the outside of a discharge housing that can be removed with screw knobs for easy access to change, inspect or clean the screen and paddles. A hinged access door on the side of the housing allows visual inspection.
Screens are available in a wide range of apertures to satisfy a diversity of sifting applications across the process and packaging industries.
Depending on application, the shaft is driven by a 2.24 kW motor and rotates at approximately 500 RPM, offering vibration-free performance and high throughput rates with little or no product degradation.
Constructed with stainless steel, it is available finished to sanitary or industrial standards.
