Sifters for sanitary and corrosive environments

| By Chemical Engineering

GS Series centrifugal sifters (photo) are manufactured in either 304 or 316 stainless steel for installation in sanitary and corrosive environments. The sifters are specified to condition granular and powdered products prior to entering production, to safely remove foreign matter from the product, or to separate the product into two streams based on particle size between 40 μm to 5 mm. GS Series sifters feature a rotating paddle assembly that harnesses centrifugal force to pass fine particles through a mesh screen and divert oversized particles to the discharge. All set within a sealed, dust-tight housing, the screen and basket may be safely accessed within the machine for 360-deg visual inspection and quickly removed for cleaning and fast changeovers with minimal downtime. The GS Series comprises four standard models, each available with screen mesh sizes from 100 to 4,000 μm, throughput rates up to 120 ton/h and a choice of surface finishes. — Gericke USA, Somerset, N.J.
