The Gentle Roll works great as a pellet screener because of the gentle product handling yet highly efficient screening action. Installation is simple due to the non-vibrating screening technology. Only the static operating weight needs to be accounted for whether it is installed inside, outside, or on top of a building or structure. Our machines can have a hot-dipped galvanized or painted finish.
Gentle handling of edible beans is always a concern and the screening process is no exception. The pictured screener was built to screen and scalp Great Northern beans, and Pinto beans at 3000 bushels/hour. To protect the quality of the beans we lined the inlet and scalping hoppers with a low durometer rubber and put a let-down ladder inside the scalping hoppers. The gentle rollover screening action of the Gentle Roll makes it the ideal screener for edible beans and the added options show the value and our commitment to providing the customer with the right machine for their application.
Pet food screening is another application that the Gentle Roll handles extremely well. When the kibbles pass through the Gentle Roll, they are tumbled and cause fines that would be created in the bag to be removed. This buffing effect helps to eliminate fines from being created due to handling. When a customer opens up a bag of dog food or cat food, they do not want to see fines in the bottom, and that is why the Gentle Roll is the right choice for screening. The unit pictured was built for a pet food manufacturer and is used to sift, scalp, and separate dog and cat food. This unit was built without hoppers or legs as the customer was going to build their own hoppers and suspend the unit with cables. Suspending the unit is easy because there is no vibrating or shaking parts to the screener. The Valve assembly and Sidewinder Conveyor have also been used extensively in conjunction with many Gentle Rolls in the pet food industry.
The Gentle Roll can screen a wide variety of products and is successful in a wide variety of applications. One application that it does very well at is screening and scalping salt. The machine pictured is a Double Drum 4 Screen Gentle Roll designed to screen and scalp rock salt. It is constructed of stainless steel for corrosion resistance. The Gentle Roll has been used in many salt applications from screening and sifting salt to scalping and sizing. Some salt products currently being run through a Gentle Roll include rock salt, salt pellets and granular salt. Some users have requested mild steel units for salt as well. The Gentle Roll does an effective job of screening with reliable operation and quality craftsmanship to ensure the user a quality screener with long life.
