The Vibratory Sieve Shaker Analysette 3 SPARTAN is the ideal instrument for particle size analysis by the well-known tried and trusted method of sieving in Quality Control Laboratories.
Particle size distribution of all kinds of solid samples and suspensions can be measured by dry and wet sieving. The sieving process can be carried out with any 8’’ or 200mm diameter woven analytical sieves.
The modular system of the Analysette 3 allows for easy conversion to Vibratory Micro Mill Pulverisette 0 for milling and homogenizing small amounts of sample material.
The Analysette 3 is a ”shaking sieve” system in the classic sense, with an electromagnetic drive in the base which vibrates the sieves vertically. The material to be sieved is propelled upwards periodically from the woven sieve cloth, as it returns to the mesh of the sieve it is forced through the apertures to the collecting pan located on the base.
The regulated vertical action ensures an even distribution of the material over the entire sieve mesh. As there are no centrifugal effects, all forces act directly in the separating process of the sieves, almost regardless of the level of acceleration.
