SS-3 Gilson Performer III is compact and quiet, for efficient dry powder separations of small samples ranging from No.4 to No.635 (4.75mm to 20µm). These 3in Sieve Shakers are especially effective for dry chemicals, minerals, pharmaceuticals, powdered metals, cosmetics, abrasives, ores, foods and other fine powders. Small size and portability means the SS-3 is easy to set up in areas near process operations or for remote QC/QA applications.
High frequency 3,600vpm electromagnetic vibratory action with 0-100% amplitude control is ideal for fine particle separations. In-line solenoid actuated tapping action works at 60 taps per minute during sieving to redistribute the sample on the sieves and break static blinding, helping to clear undersize particles from mesh openings rapidly. Tapping function can also be used independently for tap-settling and tap-density functions.
The SS-3 accepts 3in (76mm) diameter conventional metal test sieves or Gilson clear Acrylic Frame Sieves. The SSA-17 3in Acrylic Sieve Adapter is included to adapt acrylic sieves to use standard metal sieve pans for fines collection. Sieve capacity is seven full-height or fourteen half-height metal sieves, or fourteen acrylic frame sieves plus pans. A metal sieve cover is also included. Exclusive Gilson EZ Clamp system offers seamless insertion and removal of sieve stacks while keeping the top cover secure at a fixed height. Captive knobs need just the push of a button and a quick twist to secure the stack. Variable control for vibration and a manual/timed mode switch with digital countdown timer controls operation to 99min, 59 secs. The pause function allows the cycle to be suspended and resumed with no loss of test time, and a five-second audible alarm sounds at completion of the interval. The controller is simple to program and the large, bright 0.5in (126mm) LED display is easy to read.
