Paddle sifters supplied by Fresco Systems Australasia are a unique alternative to vibratory or rotary sifters because they can break hard lumpy product which would otherwise be rejected by traditional sifters.
Reducing floor area requirements and the need for interconnecting conveyors, the paddle sifters mount directly onto a blender, bag dump, screw conveyor or other process equipment.
The sifters easily handle difficult to handle products that tend to lump during transit and storage such as:
- icing sugar
- whole milk powder; and
The housing of the paddle sifters is totally enclosed, and when connected to an integral or stand alone dust collection system the operator can cut and tip bags of product in a dust free environment directly onto the rigid grate.
The product then passes into the agitatored shifting zone, which is fitted with a series of brushes or beaters which continuously agitate the product until it is small enough to pass through the screen.
A double hinge access door fitted with a safety isolation switch provides quick access to the screen without the need for tools.
All models of paddle sifters are fitted with a unique lip seal and interlocking drive arrangement, with screw and brush sections easily removed to leave the stub shafts secured in the twin bearing mounts and shaft seals.
This reduces the damage on shaft seals due to operator error.
Standard sifters are capable of handling a vast range of products from very fine powders to coarse granules and beads.
Fresco Systems will customize each unit to suit the required application.
