Separating Solids from Liquids
Kason has unveiled its Vibroscreen® dewatering-clarifying screener with an anti-blinding spray-wash system for separating solid materials from liquids at high rates on a batch or continuous basis. The company believes that the Vibroscreen additionally delivers:
- An imbalanced weight gyratory motor affixed to the housing to impart vibration, causing solid particles to move across the screen and exit through an upper discharge spout, whereas liquid flows through screen apertures onto a tapered pan and exits through a lower discharge spout.
- The flexibility to function both as a dewatering screener when separating a small to medium percentage of liquid from a large percentage of solids, and as a clarifier when separating a small percentage of solids from a large percentage of liquids.
- A manifold positioned above the screen to feed 8 nozzles that spray liquid in wide conical patterns continuously or on a timed cycle, preventing solids from blinding the screen.
- A 48-inch or 1,219-mm (dia.) screen in a cylindrical housing supported on a circular base by rugged springs.
- Epoxy-coated carbon steel construction, as well as optional stainless steel.
- Compliance with 3-A, FDA, BISSC and other sanitary standards, not to mention UL, ATEX, CSA and CE electrical standards.
