Kason is a leading global manufacturer of screening and processing equipment. Its Centri-Sifter M1 sifts, scalps, de-agglomerates and dewaters granular materials ranging from dry bulk solids to solids-laden slurries in the chemical, food, dairy, pharmaceutical, plastic, mineral and packaging industries – virtually any field in which bulk solid materials are handled. 

Finding skilled laborers continues to be a difficult task for employers in the manufacturing sector.  

Kason’s Centri-Sifter M1 is the only centrifugal sifter on the market engineered for easy one-person operation and maintenance, which can help reduce the high cost of skilled labor.   

According to a study by Deloitte and The Manufacturing Institute, the U.S. manufacturing skills gap is estimated to result in 2.1 million unfilled jobs by 2030. To reduce costs, retain a smaller pool of workers and maintain productivity, manufacturers need equipment that enhances the work environment and makes production processes more efficient.  

The Centri-Sifter M1 is a replacement to the Centri-Sifter MO and features a capacity of up to 15,000 pounds of dry material and up to 50 pounds of wet gallons per hour. This unit is one of six Kason Centri-Sifter models, the largest of which can handle more than 100,000 pounds of dry material and 300 pounds of wet gallons per hour.   

The Centri-Sifter M1 also offers customers:  

  • A redesigned gearbox that significantly reduces the length of the M1 for an even smaller footprint. 
  • Fast and simple screen replacement (in as little as 120 seconds) to minimize downtime. 
  • Quick removal of internal components for rapid cleaning, screen changes and inspection. 
  • 7% more torque than its predecessor, the MO.
  • Stainless steel construction with optional pharmaceutical-grade, food, and dairy finishes or for industrial applications involving frequent screen changes, inspections or runs of multiple materials with no cross-contamination. 
  • Can be built to meet or exceed FDA, BISCC, 3-A and other U.S. and European standards.
  • A large diameter shaft and wide spacing between bearings for high-speed, vibration-free operation. 
  • Screen baskets with wire or synthetic screen mesh (for general purpose applications) or heavy-duty wedgewire or perforated plate (for applications involving high material loadings, abrasive materials, high and low-temperature conditions and corrosive environments).
