Air Jet Sieve e200 LS

As the inventor and world market leader of air jet sieving, Hosokawa Alpine has been setting new standards for more than 60 years. ALPINE air jet sieves have always been characterised by simple operation and reliable results. And there’s no end in sight to this success story: we have not only increased the comfort but also at the same time the efficiency and speed. The latest features allow you to always remain in full control.

  • High reproducibility and comparability
  • Simple operation thanks to integrated software packages
  • Automated and innovative user guidance
  • 100 % Made in Germany

Optimal results through maximum effectiveness

Because extremely fine powders tend to agglomerate and therefore clog up the sieve, the air jet sieve is the device of choice for sieving fine powders. This is where the air jet sieve e200 LS develops maximum effectiveness. Not just one, but two components work together here: a slotted nozzle which rotates inside the sieving chamber and an industrial vacuum cleaner connected up to the sieving chamber.

Once the vacuum cleaner is switched on, it creates a vacuum inside the sieving chamber. The extremely narrow slot of the slotted nozzle ensures that the incoming air is accelerated and flows through the sieve cloth at high speed from below. The particles on the sieve cloth are dispersed briefly by the air jet at the cover – even before they are pulled downwards through the sieve cloth by the suction of the vacuum cleaner. The effect: the fine material is separated quickly and effectively. The coarse material remains on the sieve and is reweighed at the end of the sieving process.

A further advantage: the automatic underpressure regulation as well as specification of the sieving-relevant parameters guarantee reproducible results.
