More Information & Specifications

Authentic Metal & Ball Screen Frames Available

The constant ball agitation aids particle stratification and prevents screen blinding for more efficient cleaning, even when used with materials which tend to clog easily. Metal frames provide for a durable, long lasting life.

Barbeau Drive Provides Years of Reliable Operation

The Grain Cleaner is driven by our Barbeau oscillating, eccentric-less drive which controls vigorous, yet smooth screen action that maintains production efficiency.
