The Hi-Sifter (powder sifting machines) are the latest breakthrough in advanced powder screening technology and is offered in North America exclusively by Elcan Industries. This industrial sifter excels in the pharmaceutical, batteries, and additive manufacturing (3D Printing) among various other industries. The entire body and all product contact areas of the sifting machine are polished stainless steel and allow for zero contamination. The high volume of energy being transferred to the screen allows for hard to screen metal alloys to flow seamlessly through the screen. These sifting machines have a strong vertical vibration that allows for high rates of efficiencies and throughputs without any blinding. The removal of any potential for contamination within the machine, explosion proof designs and high energy make the machine the precise fit for companies looking to add screening machinery to their manufacturing plants.
The Hi-sifter powder screening machines are offered in both a single or double deck design. The simple design of the machine allows for quick screen mesh cloth changing and minimal down time between runs. The powder screening machines are available in sizes ranging from 15 inches (400mm) to 40 inches (1000 mm). The smaller, 15-inch model is perfect for lab settings and is great for companies looking to do smaller tests and experiment with new products. The larger models achieve higher yields during production runs and have proven capable of screening difficult to separate products in numerous trials at Elcan.
Elcan Industries is currently the only company in the United States that offers testing on the Hi-Sifter at their state-of-the-art contract manufacturing facility in Tuckahoe, New York. Elcan encourages customers to come in and test and develop new products in Elcan’s advanced laboratory. Additionally, Elcan boasts 8 full-scale bays for toll processing available to customers looking to screen product under the supervision of the experts. Elcan has recently added Jet Milling and Air Classifying to complement their proprietary line of advanced sifting machines as well.
