The Benefits of Gap-Free Circular Vibratory Screeners

Posted by Kason Corp on 02/11/2024 9:02 PM

VIBROSCREEN Circular Vibratory Screeners efficientlyscreen, separate, and dewater bulk solids on a batch or continuous basis. While standard high-performance circular vibrating separatorsareavailable for shipment in as little as six weeks, circular screenersare fully customizable to meetunique and challenging processing needs. One such custom option is Kason’s innovative gap-freedesign, which drastically reduces contamination and prevents material buildup.

Gap-free circular vibratory separators feature an external, interlocking flange configuration between screen frames, secured by quick-disconnect clamps. The support ring of the internal screen is fully enveloped and allows the screen’s wire mesh to extend to the interior walls of the frame, removing the gap between the screen ring and the frame wall. (In conventional screeners, this is where material tends to accumulate.) This is especially useful in powder processing and applications with stringent sanitary requirements.

Serious Technology for Serious Cannabis Processing

Posted by Kason Corp on 08/8/2022 8:57 PM

While the cannabis industry continues its rapid growth (with global sales expected to reach $33.6 billion during the next three years), the fact remains that raw cannabis is inherently difficult to handle. It is both expensive and fragile, making initial sorting a critical path item in terms of productivity and profitability. Small and large operations can benefit from investing in sorting technology from an established manufacturer that is highly efficient,flexible and completely field-proven over many years -- in short, a cost-effective way to producea higher quality product with higher throughput and less waste

Slick Sifting & Screening for Sluggish Nutraceutical Powders

Posted by Kason Corp on 04/7/2022 1:58 PM

When Dr. Stephen DeFelice coined the term "Nutraceutical"in 1989, he likely never imagined the word would come to represent such a large and fast-growing industry segment. Herbal products, vitamin/dietary supplements, fibers, phytonutrients, pre- and pro-biotics and protein/amino acids can all be found online and on shelving, and business is booming. Increasing numbers of health-conscious consumers, social media platforms touting various dietary health regimens, and pandemic-driven searches for products to strengthen immune system response have pushed nutraceutical industry growth and is expected to continue for the foreseeable future.
