Elcan Industries Achieves Groundbreaking Separation by Removing “Fluff/Fibers” From Super Absorbent Polymer (SAP) Materials with Proprietary Sieving Method


Tuckahoe, NY – Elcan Industries, a leading toll processing company specializing in advanced particle separations, announces a major milestone in separating “fluff/fibers” from used Super Absorbent Polymer (SAP) materials. Elcan Industries can remove fiber/fluff contamination at 99% efficiency using their cutting-edge proprietary sieving method and technologies.


This achievement marks a significant step forward in particle separations and sets a new standard for industry performance. The ability to separate fluff out from unusable SAP material will allow super absorbent producers and users the ability to recover virgin SAP from material that has been deemed a waste stream. Not only will it save companies money, but it will also significantly reduce the need to dispose/landfill and stockpile unusable SAP material. Most of this product is formed after diapers have failed quality inspection and have been shredded leaving a material mix of virgin SAP and fluff behind.

“We’re thrilled to have achieved this groundbreaking result,” says Russell Grotto, Executive Vice President. “Our proprietary sieving method represents a major leap forward in particle separations. Most would consider this a nearly impossible separation to make. We’re proud to offer this as an exclusive service to companies looking to remove fiber/fluff contamination from their materials on a tolling and machinery sale basis”.


The proprietary sieving method is available at Elcan Industries’ state-of-the-art contract manufacturing facility. Clients can use this revolutionary technology and technique to achieve unparalleled levels of purity in their materials. With a commitment to excellence and a passion for innovation, Elcan Industries has led the way with all types of difficult-to-make particle separations.

Powder Processing Facility - Elcan Industries Gastonia Facility

The powder materials industry has significantly changed in the last few years. Companies require more precise particle sizes for various new applications developed with the current advancing technology. Elcan Industries is well known for its proprietary sieving technology: the Hi-Sifter, because while other screening technologies cannot screen powders down past 74um efficiently or at all, Elcan has been sieving materials at 10um on an industrial scale with over 98% efficiency for the past 15 years.

Powder Processing Facility - Elcan Industries Gastonia Facility

Elcan Industries’ Gastonia facility will offer powder separation services (down to 10um), along with industrial dry powder blending, repackaging from bulk trucks, and transloading services from rail cars as well. The facility is also offering warehousing services for companies in need of extra storage capacity. The site is strategically located and capable of processing truckloads a day of various powdered materials.

New Technology That Creates a Better Battery


It comes as no surprise that the use of electric vehicles (EVs) has risen exponentially over the past 10 years, and this trend has been accelerating at a faster pace than most analysts’ predicted. With the rise in demand for higher performing batteries, major battery manufacturers turn to Elcan Industries for their high performance powder screening needs. Elcan industries has developed new technologies and techniques specifically catered for the batteries materials industries that helps manufacturers improve and develop new battery technologies. Elcan helps companies produce innovative battery materials that revolutionizes the performance of their battery applications. Elcan has become a major contributor in the creation of new battery structures to power the future of emission free electric vehicles (EVs).

Reduction in Cell Failure

Elcan Industries’ line of Hi-Sifter and Elbow Jet Air classifiers has helped companies develop previously unattainable fractions of their powders. Whether it be graphite or silicon for anode materials, or lithium based nickel products for cathode production, Elcan has the ability to help refine the process.

As pioneers in the materials processing industry, Elcan has been ahead of its counterparts with its unparalleled screening techniques and equipment. Since the early 90s Elcan was already helping companies effectively screen powders down to as fine as 10um with over 99% efficiency. Elcan has successfully helped companies achieve higher yields and cleaner products for their various battery applications which helps companies avoid structural failures within the battery that degrades performance over time. With the high-end products Elcan is able to produce for lithium ion battery manufacturers, it allows them to mitigate potentially dangerous failures of the cell containers.

Longer Lasting Battery Life

Sizing of powders is an integral part of the battery formulation process. Most powders need to be sifted to below 44 micron in order to maximize the amount of powder within each battery cell. The ability to fine screen at these sizes allows companies to produce not only the cleanest (contaminant free) grade of powder, but also to obtain as much life out of the battery as possible. The machines also allow companies to produce more powder over a shorter period of time and eliminate what is often a bottleneck in the production process.

Elcans Experience

Elcan Industries has helped numerous EV and Lithium-Ion Battery producers develop and improve upon existing powders and processes. The advanced equipment has helped companies with research and development of new powders at fine sizes that are not achievable using conventional screening equipment. This new approach to screening has allowed Elcan and their customers to re-shape the market and deliver new solutions in a rapidly evolving market. Elcan has a full scale toll processing facility in New York where they sift powders and examine new methods to help companies find an edge in this competitive market.

Elcan offers material testing on their advanced, high energy screening technologies. Elcan encourages companies to send in material for testing to benchmark their performance. They will run any product specifications/cuts that you require. Elcan also provides all PSD analysis from their Malvern and RoTap equipment. Elcan is open for visitors, but understand that some companies have travel restrictions due to COVID-19, so they are offering virtual tests for companies that wish to witness the test remotely.

Updates to Processing Capabilities in the Lithium-Ion Battery Materials Market


New York, NY, Sept. 29, 2020 (Thomasnet) — Elcan Industries, today announced new advancements to its particle separation capabilities after successfully pairing together their Hi-Sifter and Elbow Jet technologies. Elcan has been working closely with EV companies and lithium-ion battery manufacturers to produce higher quality, high performance battery material for the rapidly growing electric vehicle industry. Elcan Industries has successfully integrated a new line of high energy screeners in conjunction with the Elbow Jet Air classifier to provide catered classification solutions to their customers. Using the hi-sifter, Elcan was able to separate anode materials at 107um and 32um for the initial processing step. From there, Elcan used the Elbow Jet to further classify the product at 10 and 2 microns respectively.

This new technology helps reduce the processing time and cost for raw materials needed for the manufacturing of lithium-ion battery cells. The sieving system also has the ability to mechanically sieve down to 10 microns which allows companies to create tight product specs and sieve out any product contaminants from the feedstock. The Elbow Jet allows for extremely fine classification of powders without the use of a classifying wheel. The technologies and toll processing services that Elcan offers companies allows them to be more competitive in the EV market by offering their end customers lower cost electric vehicles with longer lasting battery performance.

Elcan continues to advance the rapid growth of the electric vehicle market with its state of the art screening technologies and capabilities. Elcan has the ability to process materials for companies looking to scale up their production without having to capitally commit with the purchasing equipment and expertise to run the machinery. Their in house laboratory allows them to work with companies of any size to trial powders and deliver immediate performance feedback. Elcan has been processing high performance, high value add products for companies for over 30 years and have proven to be market leaders when it comes to screening powders efficiently.
