Gradex 2000 Particle-size Analyzers
Tighter control over quality metrics.
The Gradex 2000™ allows you to analyze product on a more frequent and timely basis while eliminating operator error and bias. Combine reliable particle-size analysis with extremely low maintenance.
How It Works
Using standard sieve-analysis motion, the sample is analyzed for a preset amount of time. Once the time has elapsed, the sieve brushing and weighing begins. Each individual sieve is automatically brushed to ensure consistent pressure and technique with each analysis. The weight of that fraction is measured on a Mettler Toledo scale and recorded onto a computer. This process is repeated for each sieve within the stack until a final sample particle size distribution (PSD) is known. The PSD is then compared against product specifications to determine the quality performance of each sample.
Eliminates Human Variance
Automated brushing and weighing results in a consistent standardized method that won’t differ or shift with personnel changes.
Increased Quality Control
More frequent and automated tests result in faster recognition of off-spec production.
Automatically transfer analysis results to a computer with customizable report formats.
