Mesh cleaning is the core of sieving techniques.
Efficient sieving takes place when the mesh is clean, i.e. the product particles do not remain entangled within the mesh apertures, and the particles with smaller dimension than the cut point (that is, the required mesh size) are free to flow below the mesh.
Particles may entangle due to their stickiness or to their irregular shape.
How can we keep the mesh always clean, letting the sieving process run smoothly and without obstacles?
Within Virto-Cuccolini sieving equipment range, five different solutions are offered:
– cleaners like rubber balls (for powders) or plastic cylinders (for powders and liquids): thanks to these elements jumping or sliding below the mesh, additional vibrations are created on the mesh and particles are pushed to fall – this solution applies to C-Line vibrating sieves and T-Line tumblers; the minimum applicable cut point is 100 µm
