Air Jet Sieve Particle Size Analysis Test on Coffee Creamer
The Mikro Air Jet Sieve MAJSx comes in an advanced, computer
assisted model and a basic model; both, designed to determine the particle
sizes of a wide range of dry powder materials. This video shows the MAJSx Basic
Model conducts the particle size analysis of coffee creamer. The steps to
analyzing this creamer are as follows:
Measure the weight of your
first sieve screen and record that weight. Then, add your sample to the
top of the screen and record the weight of the screen and sample combined.
Typically, a 20 gram sample is used.
Place the screen, with the
sample on top, onto the air jet sieve and press “Start.”
If the material is
sticking to the cover, using the tapping hammer provided, slightly tap the
top of the screen to release those particles.
Once the sieving is
completed, brush off the particles that have stuck to the lid so that they
fall back onto the screen. Reweigh this screen and record the weight.
Weigh your second screen,
put the leftover sample from the first screen onto the second screen, and
then repeat steps three and four for sieving the second screen.
Your analysis is complete!
You may now print and save your analysis.
