Brass Powder

Brass powder is an alloy that is made up of copper and zinc. It has very low friction properties and a high corrosion resistance and its thermo-conductive nature makes it very common in a wide array of industries including electronics. Sieving brass powder is similar to most metal powders where the density of the powder can cause problems screening. On conventional screeners, this heavy metal powder tends to build up on the screen and can lead to blinding and low screening efficiency.

Elcan's Experience

Elcan’s Experience: Sieving brass powder is like sieving most metal powders. The key to an efficient separation is energy on the screen surface. When screening brass powder, the key is to prevent the material from building up on the screen. The high energy screeners used by Elcan quickly break up any agglomerates and the fines pass through the screen mesh. The machine discharges the oversize off the screener itself so there is no need to clean the screen mesh. Elcan has successfully separated brass down to 15 microns.
