Sifters (Centrifugal Screening)
The Hanningfield Kwik-Sift offers fast and effective powder screening, helping guarantee material integrity through the capture of alien objects (such as nuts, bolts, washers, cable ties). The rotating mesh drum creates a centrifugal screening action, with powder passing through the mesh while retaining those objects larger than the hole aperture. For achieving different grades of separation, various drum mesh sizes are available to meet different application requirements.
The unit can incorporate a single or dual spoiler arm arrangement for performing simple de-lumping of agglomerated material. The spoiler arm simply clamps onto the existing chute via a tri-clover.
As standard, all contact parts are manufactured from 316L stainless steel (180 grit), with FDA compliant seals, gaskets etc. Non-contact parts such as frames, motor covers and control panels are manufactured from 304 stainless steel (150 grit). All standard materials of construction and surface finishes can be upgraded or downgraded upon request.
Various mounting solutions are available for the sifters (mobile frame, swing-arm, fixed post, hoist mounted etc.) and the mill can be customised with a selection of inlet and outlet configurations including hand-feed chute, valve assemblies, tri-clover connections, vacuum adaptors or any other bespoke design required for process integration.
All equipment can be supplied with full validation documentation (FS/DS, FAT, SAT, IQ/OQ) and 3.1 mill certificates to EN10204.
Sifting of powder from drums, IBCs, big bags etc.
The Kwik-Sift can be fed by hand, or from drums, IBCs, big bags etc. The unit rapidly sifts good material, while retaining alien objects (nuts, bolts, washers, cable ties).
