The cascade separator system from Russell Finex is a spring-mounted grading separator ideal for sizing, classifying, or grading powders. The separator accurately sieves powders on a much larger screen area, removing the need to invest in more expensive, larger diameter machines to obtain a higher throughput. The cascade system can be mounted to most circular separators of 48- and 60-in.-diam, regardless of make or model. The system is based on two screens of the same mesh size, mounted one above the other, the upper screen being slightly smaller in diameter. Material is fed to the upper screen and either passes through the mesh to be channeled to the discharge spout, or flows over the edge onto the screen below where it has another chance to be screened. Particles of the specified size passing though the lower screen are discharged in the normal manner. All oversized particles are discharged from the lower screen. The two-phase separation process increases mesh area significantly, compared to a standard separator of the same diameter, raising capacity by up to 70 percent.
