Providing all the equipment necessary to perform meaningful particle size analysis using sieves.
It is important to consider not only the sieving process itself but also taking a representative sample, ensuring repeatability of your sieving test, evaluation of your result, the proper cleaning of the sieves, together with checks to ensure that your sieves are compliant.
Endecotts provide the full package to receive accurate and repeatable results every time!
Let’s consider the steps in a little more detail:
Efficient sampling is a task which must be performed conscientiously. A sample should represent the bulk quantity of material as closely as possible, otherwise any subsequent analysis carried out on the sample will at best be an utter waste of time, and at worst grossly misleading.
Gross samples can be sub-divided into one or more smaller samples by hand or mechanically using a sample divider.
If the sample is moist or even wet you may need to dry it. The behavioural characteristics of powders change considerably when moist or wet.
The Endecotts Fluid Bed Dryer FBD 2000 is a compact, portable dryer. Its powerful air delivery system makes drying a very fast operation.
The fluidisation mixes and separates the particles, minimising the risk of abrasion and the creation of lumps and resulting in a truly representative sample
High airflow rates of the fluid bed dryer provide an excellent transfer of heat and ensure much faster and more homogeneous drying than other methods such as ovens, microwaves or vacuum drying.
High Quality Sieves
At Endecotts every single analytical test sieve is individually manufactured under the most stringent quality control procedures using only the finest materials. Endecotts use the most advanced computer scanning techniques to ensure precise test sieve apertures. Endecotts skill and experience ensures you will not only receive a test sieve that looks and feels good, but one that offers a degree of accuracy second to none.
They are made with only the highest quality materials and are available in diameter sizes of 38, 100, 150, 200, 250, 300, 315, 350, 400 or 450 mm as well as in 3, 8, 12 or 18 inches.
Woven wire mesh sieves can be supplied with aperture sizes ranging from 125 mm down to 20 microns in full and half height versions.
They are available in frame materials of either brass or stainless steel.
Many other sieves are available from perforated plate and electroformed plate for specialist applications in the Coffee, Grain and Diamond industries.
Endecotts have a wide range of laboratory sieve shakers.
The Octagon 200, Octagon 200CL, Minor 200 and Air Jet Sieving Machine Air Sizer 200 have been especially designed to accommodate the exacting requirements of the modern laboratory.
Ergonomically designed and with a fresh look, Endecotts sieving machines are ideal for your busy laboratory. All Endecotts sieve shakers are designed to ensure repeatability in your sieving test. All of Endecotts models have a 3D sieving motion allows for high separation efficiency and non blinding sieving action.
