Silicon carbide is a ceramic powder that is commonly used in the abrasives and electronic industry. It is extremely hard and has conductive properties that make it very common in these industries. Sieving Silicon Carbide can be a difficult process due to the high density of the product and the abrasiveness of the powder. The density of the powder can kill any energy of and rip screen cloth on traditional vibratory screening machines and ultrasonic sieving machines as well. This is where the Elcan Industries Hi Sifter sieving technology differs from other technologies because the high energy on the screen surface allows for particles to easily flow through without being caught in the openings of the screen mesh.
