American Fabric Filter Co. offers a wide variety of cleaner balls to fit any sifting application. Sifter balls and cubes work inside screen decks to prevent the screens from clogging with product or “blinding.” Screen blinding prohibits the product from flowing freely through the screen and leads to a loss in sifter capacity along with an increase in sifter tailings or overs. American Fabric Filter carries the following sizes and types of cleaner balls:
Balls available in diameter sizes: 5/8”, ¾”, 1”, 1-1/8”, 1-3/8”, 1-5/8”, 2”; other sizes available upon request.
Polyurethane – The most abrasion resistant and longest lasting ball on the market. Extremely oil, moisture, and chemical resistant. FDA approved. Available with a magnetic stainless steel core.
White Neoprene Rubber – Food grade Neoprene rubber is resistant to fats, oils, ozone, and weather.
Black Neoprene – For non-food grade applications.
Black EPDM – Great abrasion, weather, and ozone resistance. Good for medium to high temperature ranges.
Silicone – Food grade Silicone stands up to high temperature and resists oxidation and ozone.
Metal Detectable Polyballs – The best food grade metal detectable ball on the market!American Fabric Filter Co. has answered our customers’ demands for a polyurethane ball that will not pass through magnetic separators or metal detectors. The magnetic stainless steel core provides assurance that any screen failure will be caught and remedied before product ever leaves the plant. Many other “metal detectable” balls on the market do not have enough mass to effectively set off a metal detector once they have been worn down. AFF’s metal detectable balls will work every time because the mass of the stainless steel core never changes. Couple the stainless steel core with the abrasion resistance of polyurethane and you have the longest lasting metal detectable ball on the market! Call for current pricing.
