Centrifugal sifters & rotary sieves
High capacity rotary screeners for sifting bulk solids and slurries
The Russell Finex Turbo Sieve is a rotary screening machine, offering a non-vibratory screening solution to separate particles of two different sizes through the use of centrifugal force. Smaller material passes through the static cylindrical screen by a rotating paddle, while oversize particles are moved along the screen to an outlet at the end of the unit. The centrifugal forces generated by the paddle are also ideal for breaking up lumps and agglomerated powder, allowing them to pass through the mesh and increasing yield. The paddle is mounted on a cantilever shaft eliminating the need for an additional bearing. This gives a cleaner design and a strip down time of around 30 seconds.

Frequently Asked Questions
How do rotary sifters work?
Rotary sifters allow materials such as bulk powders or slurries to be separated into two fractions in one operation. Using centrifugal force, dry powders are pushed through a static screen. High-speed rotation keeps oversize materials trapped within the cylindrical element while desired material passes through the mesh, eliminating contamination from the end product.
What are rotary screeners used for?
The main function of a rotary screening machine is to remove oversize contamination or breakdown lumps in dry powder products. This makes a rotary screener ideal for pre-screening ingredients usually after a silo, removing contamination from dry powders.
