At PPMA 2018 (Stand F62) Goudsmit Magnetics of Waalre (NL) introduces a new generation of magnetic separators. These are used to remove metal particles (>30 μm) from foodstuffs like coffee, cocoa, malt, rice, sugar and flour, but also from other powder and bulk materials.Read more
Screening & Separation
Innovations in screening and separation in dry material handling operations
Screening separates a flow of material into multiple grades by particle size, these grades are then either further processed to an intermediary product or a finished product. Screening is an integral part of many dry material handling processes. In the context of screening or sieving equipment selection, the machines are evaluated on their ability to optimize product quality and screening efficiency. A sieve is used to process individual batches of a product, and a screen is used on a continuous flow of a product. There are many factors that are affecting the effectiveness of screens and sieves, for instance moisture, blinding, mesh size and wire diameter, capacity, cohesion, adhesion and the direction of approach of particles to the screen surface.
Magnetic separation systems are designed to remove metal contaminants from from bulk streams. Magnetic separators result in practically no product loss and are suitable for removal of regularly occurring and larger quantities of metal contamination in processing operations.
REGENSDORF – August 2018 sees the initial launch of the new Gericke GS centrifugal sifter. The new range of GS centrifugal sifters is the evolution of a long established design principle, highlighting Gericke as an industry leading sifter manufacturer.Read more

The high-frequency sieve was already frequently used for sieving dust and grit in feed and pet food applications. The desire was to be able to change a sieve deck quickly (<30 sec), but above all to be able to realize a higher sieve effeciency.Read more
