An all-new, expanded test laboratory at Kason Corp. contains a full range of equipment for documenting the performance of vibratory screeners, centrifugal sifters, fluid bed dryers/coolers, mixers/blenders and size reduction equipment using customer-supplied materials.
Vibroscreen® circular vibratory screeners include units with single and multiple decks for measuring sifting, scalping, classifying, de-dusting and dewatering efficiency.
Centri-Sifter™ centrifugal screeners verify sifting, scalping, de-agglomerating and dewatering performance.
Compact Vibro-Bed™ circular fluid bed systems, with fluid bed processor, heater/cooler/moisturizer, blower and dust collector on self-contained mobile frames, offer testing flexibility not practical with larger, heavier, rectangular units of equivalent capacity.
Cross-Flo Static Sieves are also available for liquid/solid separation as well as dry product scalping.
New additions to the lab include Kason Kek-Gardner models of centrifugal sifters, vertical sifters, kibblers, cone mills, and horizontal mixers.
Performance data obtained on all laboratory test equipment are scalable to accurately project outcomes achieved on production models to be constructed.
Hoppers, mechanical conveyors, and flow promotion devices above and below the mezzanine level enables Kason lab technicians to replicate virtually any process layout and production scenario, including running of materials at elevated temperatures.
All models of laboratory equipment are quick-clean designs allowing easy access to interior components for rapid inspection, disassembly, screen changes and cleaning.
The test lab is utilized to measure performance characteristics of new equipment designs.
The company also provides on-site trials of select equipment for customers unable to ship materials for testing, and offers equipment for pilot plant testing and other long-term trials on a rental basis.
