A gyratory sifter (also called a screener, classifier, or separator) consists of a stack of multiple square, rectangular, or round screen decks. The screen decks are mounted on a stationary base that's equipped with a drive mechanism. This article concentrates on gravity-fed sifters, which have square or rectangular screen decks.
