Separator Machines

Performance™ Series Separator Machine Overview

Our Performance series of round vibratory separator machines effectively separate dry goods by size or liquids from solids. Proudly designed and assembled in the USA, engineered to last, and built with high-quality components, our machines are well suited for liquid-solid separation, wet or dry classification, and dry separation.

Why Gerard Daniel

Various types of vibratory screeners have been in use for decades. However, while many parts of major separator machine brands are interchangeable, we use our deep expertise in woven mesh to recommend a screen gradation to suit the customer’s need precisely, rather than using a “cookie-cutter” approach from standard mesh, resulting in maximum production rates. We build every Performance machine in our US plant using the best quality materials and continuous welding, to provide a clean, durable machine intended to last for decades.

We also differentiate ourselves by delivering personal customer service. We help our customers make good decisions about the right machine for their applications and ship their units fast. With over 70 years of experience in wire mesh solutions, our applications engineers have the know-how to pair you with the right size machines, the right screens, the right accessories, and to get you up and running as quickly as possible. We also provide responsive aftermarket support to keep our customers’ equipment in good operating condition.

A circular vibrating screen allows small particles (or liquid when used as a solid liquid separator) to fall through the screen, while particles too large to pass through are conveyed off the edge in a spiral by the gyration of the screen. By carefully selecting the mesh and stacking up to four screens of increasing mesh opening size, users can separate or classify material into multiple sizes


We can replace or repair parts for virtually any other OEM sifter – sieve machine manufacturer, including a Sweco vibratory screener, Midwestern, Kason, Russell Finex, etc.

Our machines are CE and FDA certified and compliant to the specifications of the following bodies – CFIA, USDA, 3A Dairy, ASTM, HPRA.
