- Security screening at higher throughput than traditional sieving
- Suitable for delumping and deagglomeration of friable materials (with use of spoiler arm)
- Can be mounted in-line for feeding downstream process (gravity feed or vacuum transfer)

Design & Operation
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.
Customise Your Sifter
Various mounting solutions are available for the sifters (mobile frame, swing-arm, fixed post, hoist mounted etc.) and it 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).
Sifting into Drum
The Kwik-Sift can be hand-fed allowing immediate discharge into the drum below (various methods of containment are available).
In-Line Vacuum Sifting
In-line vacuum transfer from a Sack Tip Station and through a Kwik-Sift to achieve automated and dust-free sifting. This also helps reduce material temperature as processing is quickened.
Capturing Foreign Objects
A Kwik-Sift is commonly used for powder screening, helping guarantee material integrity through the capture of alien objects (such as nuts, bolts, washers, cable ties).

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
To ensure material integrity before downstream processing. Unwanted alien objects (twist ties, zip ties, paper, plastic etc.) are retained in the sifter basket, allowing only purified and screened material to pass.
A traditional sieve has a flat mesh deck, using vibration and gravity to pass material. Instead, the Kwik-Sift features a spinning basket, using centrifugal force to pass material through the screen / mesh.
Yes, by utilising centrifugal force rather than gravity, the Kwik-Sift will significantly outperform traditional sieve capacity on almost all products. Some sticky, hygroscopic or heat sensitive materials may be better suited to a vibratory sieve.
No. Unlike a vibratory sieve, the Kwik-Sift does not have the means to separate oversize material. Oversize material will remain in the sifter basket.
Yes, with the addition of a breaker-bar, the Kwik-Sift can be used for de-lumping. Although, if size reduction is the primary objective, you should consider a milling machine instead.
Screen size can typically be changed in less than 2 minutes, by undoing 4 bolts, changing mesh, and re-tightening the bolts.
Yes, we can supply this machine to meet the most stringent zoning requirements, including ATEX Zone 0/20.
