KEK CENTRIFUGAL SIFTER The KEK Centrifugal Sifter is recognized as the leading high capacity sifting and screening solution for food industries globally. KEK Sifters classify the size of material by sifting and separating out material that isn’t to the required size. This screening process also removes unwanted material and de-risks the process from accepting contaminants such as plasters, insects, metals etc.
