Jones Splitters are precision made for the exact dividing and mixing of fine powders and granular material samples. Alternating fixed-width chutes deliver half of the sample to each of the two pans — select models with chute openings 2.5 to 3 times larger than sample topsize to avoid bridging during separation.
Jones Splitters are ruggedly constructed for long service life. The SP-171 and SP-171X are designed for materials with 1 to 1.5mm top size. The stainless steel feeder guides material directly past fixed-width chutes and into two sample pans. Pans have an extended back to prevent spillage.
SP-173, SP-174, SP-175, and SP-177 splitters are similar in design and quality to the SP-171 Jones Riffle Splitter models but feature larger capacities and gated hoppers that hold material until released for greater control and accuracy. The gated hopper permits easy mixing and distribution of samples before splitting and requires only the two included pans for processing. Frames and hoppers are stainless steel, while riffle plates are hardened aluminum.
SP-171 Jones Splitter has fourteen chutes with 0.125in (3.2mm) chute width openings. The chutes and sample pans are both made of hardened aluminum. Four SPA-241 Standard Aluminum Sample Pans are included. SPA-242 0.5L High-Volume Aluminum Sample Pan is available for handling larger sample volumes.
SP-171X Jones Splitter has fourteen chutes with 0.125in (3.2mm) chute width openings. It features all stainless steel contact parts to avoid sample contamination and includes three SPA-240X Stainless Steel Pans.
SP-173 Jones Splitter has thirty-two chutes with 0.25in (6mm) chute width openings. Its hopper capacity is 160in³ (2.6L) — order SPA-244 for additional Aluminum Sample Pans.
SP-174 Jones Splitter has sixty-four chutes with 0.25in (6mm) chute width openings. Its hopper capacity is 325in³ (5.3L) — order SPA-245X for additional Stainless Steel Sample Pans.
SP-175 Jones Splitter has twenty-two chutes with 0.375in (9.5mm) chute width openings. Its hopper capacity is 100in³ (1.6L) — order SPA-244 for additional Aluminum Sample Pans.
SP-177 Jones Splitter has sixteen chutes with 0.5in (13mm) chute width openings. Its hopper capacity is 150in³ (2.5L) — order SPA-244 for additional Aluminum Sample Pans.
