Applications

Glass Powder

Glass powder is the result of glass being crushed using a mill. Glass powder is commonly used to make electronic tapes along, and can also be used as an additive or filler for other electronic applications. Blinding is a huge problem that occurs when sieving glass powder due to the high density of the product. Glass powders can also have varying particle shape, which makes it difficult for some particles to fit through the hole opening. Lastly, agglomerations are very common with glass powder, which can cause the appearance of oversized particles.

Elcan's Experience

Elcan Industries has toll processed over a million pounds of glass powders. Using our advanced screening machines, we have been able to achieve separations at as low as 10 microns on glass powder. Elcan’s high energy screening machines keep the particles jumping on the screening surface which never allows them to settle in the hole and blind. Agglomerations are blown apart once they hit the high energy on the screen and particles are able to pass through the screen openings seamlessly. Elcan has handled numerous types of glass powders and has done large scale projects with producers, making separations for them at 325 and 500 mesh.
