• Sieve Shakers

    There are two Fritsch A3 sieve shakers, the model PRO and the model SPARTAN. Both models are ideal instruments for determining the particle size distribution of a wide variety of materials using both wet and dry sieving. In addition, the A3 sieve shakers, can easily be converted to be used as a vibratory micro mill for the milling and homogenisation of small amounts (0.1-10g) of material, down to a final fineness of <50μm.

    The Fritsch A3 sieve shakers, operate with a magnetic drive in the base of the instrument, which vibrates the sieve stack vertically. The sample material is propelled upwards and as it returns to the mesh of the sieve, it is forced through the openings. The regulated vertical action of the sieve shaker, produces optimum material sizes for sieving and ensures an even distribution over the sieve mesh.
