Dewatering Self Dumping Hopper Fail

What is the diameter of your screen and what mesh size is the screen that you’re using.  Looks interesting.  Are you still using this for mash separation  

Thanks,

Dave

We have a liquid/solid separator from Kason.  Price was under $20k shipped and with a custom stainless steel stand.  Works like a dream and it's DEAD silent.  Pump in spent mash on one side and dry grain comes out the other side.  Ok it's not DRY but it's about as close as you could get without applying heat.

Word of advice, don't let them arrange the freight as they wanted almost $1,000 for shipping when our logistics guy was about $250 including insurance.

What type of Kason do you have? Do you have a pic of video of it in action

Do you happen to know what size screen/mesh you are running? We picked up a used centri sifter and it has been working well. We are trying to get more solids out of the effluent. We were screen with a 1/32" perforated screen and had too many solids. We have since put a 40 mesh screen (0.0165") screen inside the 1/32" and it takes out many more solids but we do get into the situation where we blind over the screen once and awhile and our grain becomes fairly watery.

Just looked at the parts list, it states 140MESH  0.004" SLOTS, 0.030" WIRES

No need to post a video because there's really nothing to see. Google kason centric sifter and that's it. When it's running there's no noise, none. All you see is grain particles falling out of the outlet because everything is self contained. The only visible moving part is the fan on the motor.
