An Improved Air Jet Sieve

Dec 20 2005

Additional new features to the 200 LS-N Alpine Air Jet Sieve, from Hosokawa Micron Ltd, ensure this industry standard, powder fineness analysis equipment, stays at the forefront of testing technology.
A new sieve identification function means the Air Jet Sieve is even more flexible when used for multiple product testing, whilst an underpressure control improvement offers more accurate and constant readings throughout.

The Alpine 200 LS-N Air Jet Sieve, is designed to measure powder fineness to 10µm within the particle analysis laboratory environment. The 200 LS-N is an accredited high precision testing unit, that is acknowledged as an easy to use and accurate industry standard.

A new sieve identification function makes the 200 LS-N even more flexible, quick and reliable and as no manual input of sieve mesh data is required, potential manual inaccuracies are eliminated. This is particularly advantageous for laboratories where a great number of different products are analysed using different sieve sets.

The new under pressure development means that now the underpressure in the sieving chamber and the dispersing effect of the jet is monitored and controlled and regulated keeping it constant throughout the entire sieving process. This serves to eliminate analysis errors such as those caused by secondary air entering the sieve cover. The underpressure set points can be selected automatically from a pre-installed database on the identification of the mesh width.

These new features along with new maintenance procedures which are stored on the 200 LS-N electronically, make this test equipment even more accurate and user friendly.
