Because of its versatility, the Mechanical Sifter is employed in a variety of industries. Agriculture industries and food processing industries are among the most common industries. They are majorly used to sift products like gari and other related granules.
The machine sifts out the fiber from the product that is fed to it. Sifting is also used to remove lumps or growth that may have formed on goods after they have been held for a long time, and the materials are passed through an open mesh, which fines the materials. It also separates the materials by size and removes any unwanted foreign particles.
