The use of GKM screening machines in the sugar industryTumbler screening machine for exact classification and Vibration control Screener for absolute product safety
To produce very precise grain sizes within tight tolerances and special sugar types, the GKM tumbler screening machine is increasingly finding its way into sugar factories for a wide range of applications (fineness, throughput capacities, etc.). Depending on the requirements, the tumbler screening machines are equipped with up to six screen decks.During screening, the sugar is fed through the central inlet nozzle. Using the three-dimensional motion of the machine, the sugar is distributed evenly and spirally from the inside to the outside of the screen surface. Typical separation cuts for fractionations are between 2.0mm and 0.20mm. The throughput rates here vary from 10t/h to 50 t/h depending on the required grain size.
In order to ensure the quality of the end product, e.g. when loading lorries or emptying silos, and to be able to comply with the highest food standards, the oversize particles or sugar nodes and impurities must be separated from the sugar. The GKM
