Mikro Air Jet Sieve® Analyzers are an accurate and reliable single-sieve machine using an Air Jet sieving action. The use of Air Jet sieving action is gentle, effective, and especially useful for fragile or low specific gravity materials. This clean and quiet sieve shaker is used for 10–100g samples of dry powders from No.4–No.635 (4.75mm–20μm). These sophisticated particle sizing analyzers are CE marked and made in the U.S.A.
They have a rotating slotted nozzle that supplies positive air pressure to gently fluidize the sample in a covered test sieve. Exiting air is drawn downward with an external vacuum system, creating a negative pressure to carry undersized particles to a collection canister. A vacuum system is required for operation and purchased separately. Purchasing the AJA-4 High-Efficiency Cyclone, used in conjunction with the vacuum systems, assures the greatest recovery of sub-micron fines.
Basic or Advanced versions are offered. Both versions are offered in two separate models configured for use with 200mm ISO, older style Air Jet (with large gasket removed), or 8in ASTM test sieves. Contact Customer Service for parts to adopt either model to use alternate sieve sizes. The SSA-10 Sieve Seal Gasket is required for all sieves or replaces the original sealing gasket of Air Jet Sieves.
The cast aluminum housing features a built-in pressure differential gauge and has a baked enamel finish. An integral electrical outlet provides a convenient connection for the vacuum system, which is purchased separately. The vacuum is monitored at the housing outlet and has a control valve for adjustment. USB ports are available for the use of an external keyboard and mouse. Units have 20GB of internal storage.
Both versions include the base unit, a clear acrylic sieve cover, a slotted brass air nozzle, electronic controls, and an integrated computer system with a touchscreen display. Built with a 15-Watt bevel-gear motor that has lifetime lubricated bearings. Test times and vacuum/pressure settings are controlled through the integrated computer, with capacitive touchscreen controls and display.
AJ-105 Advanced Mikro Air Jet Sieve® models are built with advanced menu-driven software. The software collects and calculates particle sizes from a number of test sieve screens and then generates a distribution. The advanced model can connect to a compatible printer via USB, Wi-Fi, or CAT 5 cable and a compatible balance via an RS-232 connection. Additional advanced model functionality includes a comparative overlay of analyses and USB data backup.
AJ-103 Basic Mikro Air Jet Sieve® models are suitable for specific micron size evaluation. The AJ-111 Advanced Software Upgrade can be purchased to unlock the advanced Air Jet Sieve® features on an existing Basic unit.
Note: The AJ-105 models or upgraded Basic version require an AJA-135 Apollo Precision Balance, purchased separately.
