Gilson Tapping Sieve Shakers have a researched-based sieving action that produces sharp, repeatable separations quickly over a broad range of particle sizes and material types. The Gilson-engineered sieving action results from perfect circular rotation of the sieve stack plus vertical two-way tapping at 48 taps per minute.
Superior circular rotation prevents "dead spots" on the sieve surfaces that prevent complete separation. Particles roll in all directions while upward taps mix, reorient and redistribute particles to present new orientations to sieve surfaces. Downward taps assist in passing near-size particles to clear the mesh openings. These high-capacity shakers can hold as many as 20 sieves, depending on model and sieve frame dimensions.
Gilson's tapping sieve shakers have rugged painted steel housing and powered by a 1/3hp heavy-duty motor. Both models feature the EZ-Clamp system, an internal counterbalance system that promotes stability during operation without the need for a permanent mount. More features include adjustable footpads for leveling and easy relocation. Gilson's exclusive digital controller provides precise test times for exact repeatability up to 99 minutes, at ±1 second.
The easy-to-read controller is simple to program and has a large, bright 0.5in (12.6mm) LED display. The controller features a pause function allowing the cycle to be suspended and resumed with no loss of test time and automatically resets to programmed test time for exact repeatability. A 5-second audible alarm sounds at the completion of the interval.
Gilson's easy-to-operate EZ-Clamp system with an integral sieve cover that slides freely up and down the clamp rods with the push of a button. Once the clamps are in position, simply release, then a quick twist secures the cover on the sieve stack. Once the test is complete, raise just enough to remove the sieve stack. The clamp assembly stays in place for the next test without readjustment.
SS-8R models recommended particle size range is 1in—No. 635 (25mm—20µm).
SS-12R models recommended particle size range is 2in—No. 635 (50mm—20µm). The SS-12R is supplied with an adapter to accept 8in (203mm) or 200mm sieves.
Note: characteristics of individual materials may affect the useful particle size range.
