• Quiet, electromagnetic vibratory action.
• 0-100% amplitude control.
• Switchable tapping action.
• Precise digital timing.
The Gilson Performer III’s compact size, small footprint, and quiet operation make it a very efficient instrument for dry powder separations of small samples. 3in (76mm) Sieve Shaker is designed for chemicals, minerals, pharmaceuticals, powdered metals, cosmetics, abrasives, ores, foods, and other fine powders. Effective size range is No.4—No.200 (4.75mm—75µm) with woven wire sieves. Extended sizes are possible with some materials.
High frequency 3,600vpm electromagnetic vibratory action with 0—100% amplitude control is ideal for fine particle separations. In-line solenoid actuated tapping action (60 taps/min) works during dry sieving to redistribute the sample on the sieves, and breaks static blinding, helping to clear undersize particles rapidly. Tapping can also be used independently for tap-settling and tap-density functions.
The Gilson Performer III 3" Sieve Shaker holds up to seven full-height 3in (76mm) metal sieves and pan or fourteen acrylic sieves and pan. The unique sieve clamping mechanism makes insertion and removal of the sieve stack simple and convenient, yet holds the sieves snugly during operation. The captive knobs on the clamping mechanism allow it to be released with a quick twist. The mechanism remains at this height until the knobs are twisted in the opposite direction, clamping the sieves in place.
Features include a rugged coated steel case, variable control for vibration and a manual/timed mode switch. The digital count-down controller shows time remaining and has a pause feature. Optional stackable acrylic 3in (76mm) see-through cylinder is helpful for observing sample action while leveling platform or for setting vibration.
