Dry Powder Sieving & Toll Sifting

What is sieving or sifting? Toll sieving also referred to as dry powder sifting or a dry powder screening service (particle processing), is essentially a turn-key solution which a powder manufacturer or powder material importer will dropship all of their raw feed materials (raw powder) to us for processing. Elcan (the toll processing company) takes the powdered material and classifies it through our high performance powder sieving machines to deliver our clients their desired particle size specifications.

Toll sieving or classifying powders is essentially the process in which companies have any particular powder and they need the powder sized or “classified” into a particular size specification. Generally speaking, companies buy raw powder from a powder supplier or manufacturer and then have it shipped to a toll processor like Elcan and have them screen the powder into multiple size ranges so that they can create different products and end use applications for their clients. Other times, companies have good powder and just need to screen out some contamination that got inside their powder during the manufacturing process so instead of scraping the material or shipping it back to the manufacturer, companies send it to a toller and have them screen out the contaminated particles and return the powder to a pure and usable state.

Tolling Benefits

The benefits of having Elcan as a tolling partner is that Elcan is the only company in the world with the capabilities of screening powders down to very fine sizes such as 10um and 1um respectively, on an industrial scale utilizing its proprietary screening technology the Hi-Sifter. Elcan Industries has a very distinct advantage over companies that strictly sell equipment because we actually run the very same equipment we sell. Furthermore, Elcan manufactures and customizes the sieving equipment to offer catered processing solutions for clients depending on their objectives, powder material type, density and other important criteria. Our sieving equipment gives Elcan and its customers the ability to process powdered materials at virtually any particle size range they require down to as fine as 10um on a large commercial scale. Companies that utilize our contract sieving services experience high throughput rates, yields and over 95% efficiencies all without having to run multiple passes on material.

In it’s contract manufacturing facility, Elcan offers particle separation services for companies that are struggling with particle contamination issues, screen mesh blinding, low feed rates, low yields and other issues associated with mediocre screening equipment / services. Elcan’s particle processing capabilities are often paired with our contract packaging services, blending, particle size analysis and magnetic separation to provide full manufacturing capacity to our customers.
