Powdered Sugar Particle Size Analysis with the Mikro Air Jet Sieve
Mikro Air Jet Sieve MAJSx is a highly accurate and reliable particle size
analyzer that is capable of determining the particle sizes of a wide range of
dry powder materials. This video shows the MAJSx in action, as it tests the
particle sizes of powdered sugar. The steps to analyzing this sugar are as
Set up the test but going
to the “Test” screen and entering all of the information for your test in
their corresponding fields.
Press the button to begin.
Then weigh the first screen. In this video, a 200 mesh sieve screen is

press “start.” Your jet sieve test is now starting.
If any material sticks to
the top lid of the Air Jet Sieve, you may use the provided hammer to
lightly tap the lid to release those particles.
Once sieving is finished,
