Air jet sieve

An air separation plant separates atmospheric air into its primary components, typically nitrogen and oxygen , and sometimes also argon and other rare inert gases .

The most common method for air separation is fractional distillation . Cryogenic air separation units (ASUs) are built to provide nitrogen or oxygen and often co-produce argon. Other methods such as membrane, pressure swing adsorption (PSA) and vacuum pressure swing adsorption (VPSA) are commercially used to separate a single component from ordinary air. High purity oxygen , nitrogen , and argon used for semiconductor device fabrication requires cryogenic distillation. Similarly, the only viable source of the rare gases neon , krypton , and xenon is the distillation of air using at least two distillation columns .

Pure gases can be separated from air by first cooling it until it liquefies, then selectively distilling the components at their various boiling temperatures. The process can produce high purity gases but is energy-intensive. This process was pioneered by Carl von Linde in the early 20th century and is still used today to produce high purity gases. [2]

W.S. Tyler is the exclusive distributor in North America for the Hosokawa ALPINE Air Jet Sieve e200 LS, a revolutionary product for vacuum-driven particle size analysis. Air jet sieving is an efficient process that uses air flow as the only variable that sieves the material being analyzed.

Stainless steel sieves from 20 µm to 4000 µm with RFID technology eliminates potential contamination and saves having to manually input the sieve mesh width.
