Particle fractionation by air classification

Powders and granular material typically consist of particles with varying size, shape, and / or density. In quite some applications it is desired to have a more uniform collection of particles in order to have an improved performance of the material. An air classifier is capable of separating materials by a combination of differences in size, shape, and density of the particles present in the material.

The equipment used in our field testing area is a Hosokawa multiplex classifier and the particle size separation range is from 2 micrometers to 80 micrometers. In this way we can obtain more uniform materials in the sub-100 micrometers range which in turn can be evaluated by the customer for an improved performance.
