Gilson 3in Vibratory Sieve Shaker is compact, quiet, and ideal for efficient dry powder separations of small samples. It has an effective size range from No.4–No.635 (4.75mm–20µm) with woven-wire sieves. Extended sizes are possible with some materials. This electromagnetic sieve shaker is designed for dry chemicals, minerals, pharmaceuticals, powdered metals, cosmetics, abrasives, ores, foods, and other fine powders.
Its small size and portability allow easy set-up in areas near process operations or for remote QC/QA applications. Gilson's 3in Vibratory Sieve Shaker features a high frequency of 3,600vpm electromagnetic vibratory action with 0–100% amplitude control allowing optimal settings for fine particle separations. In-line solenoid-actuated tapping action works at 60 taps/min during sieving to redistribute the sample on the sieve and break static blinding, which helps to rapidly clear undersized particles from mesh openings.
SS-3 shaker also features the exclusive Gilson EZ-Clamp system. The unique EZ-Clamp sieve clamping mechanism makes the insertion and removal of sieve stacks simple and convenient while keeping the top cover secure at a fixed height. The mechanism remains at a fixed height until the knobs are tightened to secure the sieves in place. The knobs on the clamping mechanism allow the stack to be released with a quick twist.
The shaker accepts 3in (76mm) diameter ASTM test sieves or Gilson's Acrylic and Non-Metallic frame sieves. Included with the electromagnetic sieve shaker are the SSA-17 3in Acrylic Sieve Adapter and metal sieve cover. Order the SSA-15 or GAA-88 Acrylic Spacers for observing sample action while leveling the platform or for setting vibration.
Shaker has a rugged powder-coated steel case, variable control for vibration intensity, and a manual/timed mode switch. It has a digital countdown timer with a timer capacity of up to 99min and 59 secs. The easy-to-read timer has a 0.5in (12.7mm) LED display, a pause function that allows the cycle to be suspended and resumed with no loss of test time, and a five-second audible alarm sounds after testing is complete.
The Gilson 3in Sieve Shaker operates on 115V, 50/60Hz. For operation on 230V, order the TR-502 Step-Up/Step-Down Transformer.
Note: When using Non-Metallic Sieves, the tapping action should not be used. The shaker top cover is not compatible with these types of sieves.
