Sugar screening is carried out after the dryer to improve the CV (coefficient of variation) and/or for removing lumps, prior to bagging. The Sugarequip ROTAHEX screens are designed for low maintenance requirements and are totally enclosed, allowing dust created to be effectively extracted. Various materials of construction are available to suite the product being screened. Standard screens are Ø1.6mm woven wire in stainless steel grade 304 available in various square and rectangular apertures.
The ROTAHEX screen comprises a hexagonal cone shaped rotating element in a totally enclosed housing. The screen panels in the hexagonal cone are easily removable to allow screen sizing changes.
