The Mikro Air Jet Sieve® MAJSx is a highly accurate and reliable particle size analyzer which identifies the particle size distribution of dry powder ranging from 20 µm / # 635 (mesh) to 4,750 µm / # 4 (mesh). The versatile and economical analyzer is used by hundreds of laboratories throughout the world in wide-ranging markets including chemicals, minerals, pharmaceuticals, food, plastics, and cosmetics. It is more economical than a laser diffraction analyzer and more accurate than oscillating or shacking sieving devices. Additionally, the Mikro Air Jet Sieve® is easy to operate and maintain.

Key features

  • Aerodynamic sieving, dispersion of the sample while continuously cleaning test sieve.
  • Simple analysis data saving to the on-board computer.
  • Sample Volume 10 to 100 grams/cycle analysis.
  • Output graphs in linear or Rosin-Rammler Law formats.
  • Capable of calculating particle size points at 0.01 to 99.99% using the Rosin-Rammler Law.
  • Available in Advanced and Basic Manual Computer Software Guided modes.

Target Applications:  While most customers use the air jet sieve to determine the particle size of dry powder ranging from as fine as 20 µm / #635 (mesh) up to 4,750 µm / #4 (mesh), some utilize the particle size analyzer to determine the average particle size below a specified cut point; such as D90 < 50 µm.  Others use the air jet sieve to confirm that a powder top size does not exceed product specifications. The Mikro Air Jet Sieve® MAJSx can even be used as a small lab-scale classifier to cut the fine portion out of a sample or as a dedusting system to remove undesirable fine dust from small batches.

How it Works:  The Mikro Air Jet Sieve® MAJSx utilizes test sieve screens and the pneumatic sieving principle to enhance the accuracy and reproducibility of particle size analysis. This method has become the preferred standard for such tasks as quality assurance of incoming raw materials, process control, and verification of final product specifications. While under negative pressure, a positive upward air flow is emitted from the rotating slit wand which continuously disperses particles across the surface of a test sieve screen. Those particles that are finer then the opening of the test sieve screen pass through and are carried away from the sample, leaving the coarse particles larger than the sieve opening retained on the test sieve screen. Particle size within the range of 20 to 4,750 µm can quickly be determined. The unique rotating wand method also reduces, and in many cases, eliminates the need for tapping or brushing, thus enhancing the analysis reproducibility. The overall system is designed for cleaner operation and requires less counter space than other types of analytical equipment.

Key Operating Parameters Enhance Repeatability & Reliability: The sieving time plays a major role in determining particle size with an air jet sieve. Excessive sieving time can lead to particle degradation due to attrition. In most dry powder applications, Hosokawa recommends a two-minute sieving time cycle which provides ample time for the particles of the entire sample to pass through the sieve screen or be retained.

Sieving vacuum pressure between 8-16 inches of water column is recommended during a sieve analysis. If the pressure is too low, the air velocity passing through the rotating wand may not be sufficient to evenly disperse the entire sample. If the pressure is too high, the air velocity could generate enough force to further grind material as the sample repeatedly impacts the sieve screen and sieve cover.

A sample volume between 10 and 100 grams is recommended in most air jet sieve particle analyzers, depending on the density of the material being tested. Samples larger than 100 grams have the potential to blind the test sieve screen and affect the analysis results.

Test sieve screen quality and integrity is critical in any particle size analysis process. Hosokawa provides test sieve screens that are 99% accurate. Test sieve screens with any damage such as holes, tears, scratches, waves, or other imperfections are not recommended. Sieve screens should be routinely recertified.

Performance at an Economical Cost  Hosokawa Air Jet Sieves start at $4,399 for certified pre-owned analyzers and go up to $15,855 for the most advanced systems with required ancillaries and optional cyclone.
