The Evolution of Modern-Day Sieving Technologies

In 1942, a design patent for the first ever vibratory sieving machine was awarded. 40 years later, a patent for the modern day ultra-sonic was introduced as a solution to finer sieving. These same technologies are the basis for most of today’s current sieving manufacturers. If you go through almost any powder plant in the US, you are certain to see a plethora of either one or both of these 20th-century sieving technologies.

In 2019, markets and technologies in the US are growing more rapidly than ever and the demand for finer powder with a tighter spec is at an all-time high. Many companies in the US continue to struggle using this 20th-century sieving technology to meet market specs in the 21st century.

Since our inception in 1993, Elcan has sold only the most advanced and latest sieving technologies available on the market. We have broken down barriers in the sieving industry and achieve cuts on a daily basis, that other companies could only achieve on an air classifier. Our commitment to being at the forefront of this industry has led us to help develop technologies that meet the 21st Century demand for products and quality. We are a solutions driven company that has the technology and the know how to make separations ranging from 10mm down to 10 microns.

WE ARE USERS of the same equipment we sell. At our toll sieving facility, we run millions of pounds of products every year on the same equipment we offer for sale. This has led to us developing methods of sieving that prevent downtime while maximizing efficiencies. This includes the elimination of all screen cleaning/de-blinding devices inside our sieving systems (balls, sliders, adapters, ultrasonics, etc.). Furthermore, Elcan has eliminated the expensive and time-consuming tasks of having to rescreen machines. Our do it yourself method of making screens, cuts downtime from a screen rip to minutes while reducing the costs of these changes by thousands of dollars PER SCREEN.

Sounds too good to be true right?  Well, let us prove it to you!  Send us a supersack or more of material and we will show you what a production run of your material looks like on our screener.
