THE new Russell Finex ultrasonic Spiroscreen uses a spiral shaped ultrasonic distribution element to provide maximum control of powder on a mesh screen.
The result, according to Australian representative Nupac Industries , is a substantial increase in separation efficiency and a major improvement in terms of separating different sized particles in powders.
As a deblinding aid, the new unit provides users with the opportunity to use larger screens with a single probe -- while maintaining even activity levels over the entire mesh surface.
The result is increased coverage of mesh surface, allowing maximum screen capacity,
Eliminating blinding offers a number of benefits including:
* Substantial increases in production levels;
* Increased seiving capacity resulting from all apertures staying clear so that powder can pass through them;
* Reductions in downtime (no need to stop production for mesh clearing).
Accurately screening powders in a single pass also reduces production costs by maximising seiving capacity and eliminating the need to re-size good product.
The new system can be retro-fitted to many different types of seives and screeners in addition to all Russell Finex models. Any machine up to 2m diameter can be retrofitted and the system is easy to tailor for specific needs.
A touch sensitive control panel allows an operator to adjust the ultrasonic activity level and other functions, to optimise system performance across different powder types.
A Profibus DP interface is an option that allows full integration with central control systems.
