How Deblinding Balls Save Time –

Sifter Screen Cleaning

Sifter screens need constant cleaning. Often called screen blinding, the screen mesh openings become blocked or closed as the material that is being screened fills in the screen openings. This prevents any material to pass through the openings during the sifting process.

The most profitable way to avoid or minimize screen blinding especially in dry screening is by using polyurethane screen cleaning balls. Polyurethane cubes or even unusual custom shaped pan cleaners can also be effective. More specific shapes can access those hard to reach corners of the sifter screens.

Screen Deblinding Balls

Polyballs™
Screen deblinding balls, or sifter balls, are made of highly abrasion resistant polyurethane and are available in various sizes to accommodate a multitude of applications. For example, millers are required to use deblinding balls that meet FDA regulations so as not to contaminate the grains they sift during processing and production.

Polyballs™ are FDA approved and provide the long wear life providing continual bouncing along the screen mesh surface. This loosens the material that builds up in the screen openings and allows the sifted material to pass through a clean opening in the screen.

Polyballs™ Save Time and Money

Every moment of downtime in the processing production is money out the window! One of the major reasons for downtime is the screen cleaning headache. By incorporating the screen cleaning deblinding balls in the sifting action as the product is being sifted, the Polyballs™ are doing their simple job of bouncing and dislodging the accumulated material in each screen opening.

So to save money in the sifting process, you need to save time – the downtime of screen cleaning.
