High-Strength Self-Cleaning Circular Vibratory ScreenK-KLEAN: The High-Strength Self-Cleaning Screen

Processing materials that tend to blind standard screens? K-KLEAN round screens, equipped with anti-blinding devices might be a good fit for you. Screen blinding can be caused by near-size particles clogging the apertures on a screen, fibers stapling around the wires on a screen, or by resinous, fatty, oily, or similarly viscous deposits cover the screen’s mesh.

K-KLEAN circular screens feature plastic rings or sliders which, when in operation, vibrate against the screen mesh and impart low-impact, high-frequency pulsations. This screen design maintains screening efficiency with minimal disturbance to the movement of the material across the screen.
