TPU Powders

Thermoplastic Polyurethane Powders (TPU) are used in the 3d printing polymer process due to the powders rubber like elasticity and high thermal stability as well. The powder is commonly used for parts that require flex to them, rather than parts that are designed to be durable like PA12 powdered parts. Sieving TPU powders is a process that is extremely difficult due to the elastic nature and low density of the powders. Using conventional screeners, the material may struggle to pass through the mesh as it bounces around inside the screener and may struggle to find the screen opening.

Elcan's Experience

Elcan’s Experience: Elcan Industries can offer a solution for companies looking to sieve TPU powders. The key to making separations on TPU powder is to have a high amount of energy being employed directly into the screening surface. This creates a jumping effect of the powder and allows the user to manipulate which powder passes through the screen mesh by manipulating this energy spectrum. Elcan has successfully sieved TPU powders at sizes as fine as 32 microns and has the capability to go finer.
