A Tumbler Screener is a screening machine used for de-dusting, fine (>100 microns) and granular dry materials. It achieves high capacity/output and high efficiency separation (up to 99%) for “delicate” materials for the food, pharmaceutical, metal powders and manufacturing industries.
The special tridimensional movement optimised by our engineering department makes it one of Cuccolini’s best pieces of screening equipment in the selection and dedusting of dry powders or granules. It is especially suitable for multi-stage separation of fines, lightweights and difficult to screen products. It can use mesh with an opening as small as 100 micron.
The unique tri-dimensional movement of a Tumbler literally tumbles the material and sieves it and, apart from its efficiency and capacity, the advantages it holds over standard screeners and sieves are:
- a Tumbler has an increased mesh lifetime (500% – 1,000%);
- less aggressive in the separation process which reduces particle destruction for fragile materials; and,
- are adjustable based on acceleration (RPM) and the angling of the equipment to maximize the rolling movement of the material and the ability to reduce the output of the oversize to increase screening time.
