Carbon Black Material

What is Carbon Black? Carbon Black Powder is a material that is a by product of the combustion of heavy petroleum powders. Carbon black powder is sometimes used in the batteries to replace the use of graphite as the anode material in the product. Carbon black for battery applications needs to be sized to a very tight range in order to function at its full potential. Sieving carbon black is a difficult process due to the low density of the product and lack of flowability. To sieve carbon black efficiently, high acceleration energy on the screen surface is needed to keep the material from blinding the screen and overwhelming the screen mesh.

Contract Manufacturing Experience

Elcan has sieved carbon black powder at sizes as fine as 32 microns. Using a double deck screener, Elcan often helps companies sieve carbon black to meet both the top and bottom specifications of the powder. Regardless of how tight this specification is, Elcan has been able to achieve tremendous success classifying carbon black. The energy on the screen keeps the particles elevated on the screen surface and prevents the blinding from ever occurring. This is key factor in maintaining a consistent size distribution output.
