What is the significance of granulometry?
Knowledge of the granule dimensions and the distribution according to size of the
particles dispersed in solids is extremely important for research and development,
production and quality control applications.
Based on the granulometric distribution, some of the product properties will vary,such as:
• Agglomeration due to cohesion/adhesion forces
Granulometric classification or granulometry is defined as the measurement and grading which is performed on granules or particles of a solid material for analytical purposes, both on its origin and its mechanical properties, and the calculation of the proportion of the corresponding elements for each size on a granulometric scale.
• Mechanical properties
• Fracture properties
• Resistance to wear
• Surface reaction
• Insulation properties
• Filtration properties
The FILTRA electromagnetic sieve shakers are used in research and development, and in quality control for production processes, both for raw materials and intermediate and finished products.
It is possible to carry out granulo-metric testing for particle separation, both for dry, and wet conditions. The IRIS model sieve shakers are highly effective, thanks to the three-dimensional particle motion, created by an electromagnet.
With this 3D effect, the particles bounce over the whole sieve area, forcing them to pass through to the lower sieve more quickly. Thus a faster, more effective sieving is achieved through the whole sieve column.Ø for samples from 25 gr to 25 kg of product. The particle size to be analyzed can range from 25 μ to 125 mm.
All models include digital power control (from 1 to 9), sieving time
(from 0 to 99 min.) and the sieving mode; continuous or intermittent.
All the sieve shakers are equipped with an anti-vibration system which, together
with the anchoring system, ensures complete stability during the sieving.
Depending on the model, it is possible to choose between the standard fixation
system, and the “Easy-Press” rapid fixation system. The methacrylate lid makes
observing the product during the sieving process easy.
All equipment is subjected to strict quality control, which guarantees years and
