Silver Powder

Silver powder is a very high valued precious metal used often times in electronics components. Silver powder has a tendency to agglomerate and coin together, which can lead to difficulty screening it. Often times particles are irregular or misshaped and this can lead to blinding of the screen. For high value metal powders like silver, it is imperative to keep yield loss to a minimum in order to maximize the value of the product.

Elcan's Experience

Elcan Industries has helped numerous customers in the silver powder industry to find solutions for their screening needs. Using our Hi-Sifter technology we were able to successfully remove fines at 15 microns with 97% efficiency. Even with the low percentage of open area on the screen at 15 microns we still were able to achieve rates of 100 pounds per hour. The high energy approach of the Hi-Sifter prevented the silver powder from blinding and allowed for minimum yield loss. The totally stainless steel bar underneath prevented any agglomerating underneath the screening surface that can occur with an adapter beneath the screen.
