GKM extends KTS-VS2 series of high capacity screening machines 11.01.2020


Due to the sustained high demand for the screening machine type KTS-VS2, the models KTS-VS2 600 and KTS-VS2 800 complement the GKM’s established range and KTS-VS2 series models. These additional machine sizes provide the ideal solution for little feed quantities or small batches.

The KTS-VS2 Control Screening Machine removes oversize or foreign contaminants from your final product. It is the optimum solution for control- and safety screening of powders and liquids. The KTS-VS2 is easy to integrate into production lines and ensures high throughput rates via central product in- and outlet. The KTS-VS2 is extremely flexible and is outstandingly suitable for meeting sector-specific requirements and the demands.

The KTS-VS2 series are conceived for the most demanding applications in the pharma & food sectors like the screening of milk powder. Another typical application is the control screening of powder coatings where quick disassembly and easy cleaning is extremely important.

On the basis of the modular design, the KTS-VS 2 the machine is very easy to handle. The quick clamps allow a quick disassembly, simple cleaning and assembly without the use of tools. An optional Ultrasonic Cleaning System ensures a very efficient screening and higher performance even with fine mesh cloth. Therefore, it is used to prevent the mesh cloth of clogging or product adhesion. Since the ultrasound system is located on the outside of the machine, it is particularly suitable for contamination-free screening and thus complies with the ATEX requirements for dust in Zone 22.

Multi Deckhebesystem

- Due to new pneumatic Multi-Deck Lifting System -

The current version of the pneumatic deck lifting system installed in tumbler screening machines, allows screen inserts to be changed one at a time. When used with multi-deck screening machines each deck has to be raised and changed separately. This is time and labour intensive, depending on the number of screen inserts to be changed. In order minimise downtime, GKM Siebtechnik has developed a new pneumatic multi-deck lifting system allowing multiple deck lifting and exchange in a single operation. By means of the pneumatic cylinders, all screening decks can be lifted simultaneously. All screen inserts can be inspected, cleaned or changed at once. This new lifting system allows between two and four decks to be the exchanged and inspected after which the complete screening decks are lowered precisely back to their correct location. This innovative pneumatic multi-deck lifting system can be installed or retrofitted on tumbler or vibrating screening machines with diameters of between 600 (one to three deck units) to 1200mm (from one to four deck units). When together used with the quick-clamp system, time-consuming loosening and tightening of the nuts on the ten to twelve clamping screws, is eliminated as is the use of tools.
