Adjust the Wand Height on the Micron Air Jet Sieve
The Micron Air Jet Sieve is a highly accurate and reliable particle size analyzer that is capable of determining the particle size distribution of dry powder in a range of 20µm to 4,750µm. Its clean, quiet, and compact design makes it the industry choice.
Altering Wand Height
However, the Micron Air Jet Sieve will not work efficiently if the machine is not maintained. This includes, but is not limited to, periodic raising or lowering of the wand’s height. Material that is passed into the Micron Air Jet Sieve gets evenly distributed throughout the analyzing process because of the wand. If the air filter is not at a correct height, there may be inaccurate, unreliable, or inconsistent readings. If readings become inconsistent, or are found to be inaccurate, it may be because the wand height needs adjustment.
This video shows the proper instructions for adjusting the wand height on the Micron Air Jet Sieve. As always, make sure to follow the proper safety procedures, including use of gloves and eye protection, along with removing all electrical cables, including the power, communication, and network cables, and the vacuum plug, prior to beginning maintenance.
Other Notes on adjusting the wand height:
1. Ensure that the nylon screw is 5 millimeters above the shaft end, plus or minus 10 percent.
2. Ensure that the caliper is held as vertical as possible so the proper height reading is found.
3. Ensure that the wand comes right in line with the top of the metal housing.
