Gilson 3in Performer III Sieve Shaker is compact and quiet, for efficient dry powder separations of small samples ranging from No. 4—No. 635 (4.75mm—20µm). This sieve shaker is especially useful for dry chemicals, minerals, pharmaceuticals, powdered metals, cosmetics, abrasives, ores, foods, and other fine powders. Small size and portability allow easy 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. When using the Non-Metallic Sieves the tapping action should not be used, the shaker top cover is not compatible with these types of sieves.
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 after the interval. The controller is simple to program, and the large, bright 0.5in (126mm) LED display is easy to read. An exclusive 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.
Included with the electromagnetic sieve shaker are the SSA-17 3in Acrylic Sieve Adapter and metal sieve cover. The shaker accepts 3in (76mm) diameter conventional metal test sieves, Acrylic Frame Sieves, or Non-Metallic Sieves.
