Delivered double-screen gyratory screener with Mesh De-blinding Kit for grading copper sulfate into 3 different sizes at India’s renowned agricultural fertilizer manufacturing company.
A leading agricultural fertilizer manufacturing company with clientele across the globe. The company was looking for a robust screening machine that could help them to achieve optimum results while grading copper sulfate into three different sizes.
The challenge was to sieve & sort copper sulfate powder with uneven shaped & sized particles.
The fertilizer manufacturing company was previously using a competitor-made gyro screener, but due to unevenly shaped particles, the problem of mesh screen choking took place.
Mesh screen choking invited many other problems like frequent wear & tear of mesh screen, and increased need for maintenance along with low output.
Galaxy Sivtek’s sieving & filtration experts, consisting of a team of design and R&D engineers, worked on providing the right set of solutions.
The R&D engineer requested the company to provide a sample of material (copper sulfate) to study the nature of the material.
After a detailed study of the nature of the material (particle sizes, particle shapes, moisture content, etc.) it was concluded to opt for a do-deck Vibro separator with different mesh openings.
The trial was conducted on two different round sifters from Galaxy Sivtek, Sivtek Tumbler Screen® & Sivtek Gyro Separator® with dual deck. The reason to conduct the trial on two different machines was to check the parameters like vibration pattern, how long material stays on mesh & required output.
The double-deck gyratory screener was fitting the requirement, but the problem of mesh choking due to unevenly sized particles was intact.
To eradicate the mesh choking issue, Mesh De-blinding Kit was fixed beneath both the mesh screens.
Mesh De-blinding Kit consists of trays & rubber balls that constantly keep on tapping the mesh screen & help in avoiding mesh choking.
The final conclusion was drawn to supply the gyro screener with Mesh De-blinding Kit.
The combined solution of a gyratory screen separator with Mesh De-blinding Kit allowed the hassle-free gradation of copper sulfate powder into different sizes with the required output.
After the successful installation of a double-layered gyratory separator, an onsite trail test was conducted to find the status of mesh choking & actual performance. No evidence of mesh choking was found.
The solution provided by Galaxy Sivtek is helping us out in sorting fungicide material into different sizes with the utmost ease.
