Discover our quality points: Virto-Cuccolini C-Line sieves’ sealings philosophy

One of our most well-known quality points as far as our sieves design is concerned is the way we provide that your Virto-Cuccolini C-Line sieving equipment is perfectly sealed, with the aim to avoid product leakage and dispersion inside the sieve.

Why is sealing so important in sieves’ design?

There are many reasons for preventing the product from leaking through the seals of the mesh support ring and/or through the deck borders:

food product may create mustiness in case it gets stuck in some dead-end areas in the sieve

high-value product could be dispersed if the sealing system is not working properly

– in solid-liquid separation, a leaking design could cause loss of liquid product, apart from damages caused to the sieve itself or to the surrounding area

 

 

During our 30-year long experience in the ceramic industry – where we had the occasion to learn how to sieve powders, granules, pastes and liquids under particularly challenging production objectives – we conceived our sealings and our general sieve design by taking care that the product is never leaking (of course, if maintenance is done correctly!) or dispersed inside the sieve.

Maintenance of Virto-Cuccolini C-Line sealings is easy:

– gaskets (available in silicon, EPDM and Viton) can be easily replaced

– they are basically of 2 types: one embracing the mesh supporting ring (and holding the mesh cleaning system, when included); and one sitting underneath the deck to protect the mesh in the contact areas

Sealing is finalized by the active presence of the installed decks and of the external fixing ring so that sealing adherence is made perfect, that dead areas with product residues are avoided, and that – in the first place – the product in the sieving area is never really getting in touch with the sealing area!

Replacement of gaskets is suggested at least once a year, especially if the replacement of mesh rings is frequent due to the change of cut point necessary to your sieving process.
