Gilson Testing Screens Hydraulic Clamping
Gilson Testing Screens are ideal for particle size determinations on large samples of aggregate, slag, ores, and many other coarse materials. Batch sizes up to one cubic foot (0.028m³) or more can be processed into six fractions in as little as three to five minutes, depending on material type. Vibration and amplitude characteristics are fixed at optimum settings for mineral aggregates in the 4" (101mm) to No.4 (4.75mm) size range, but options and accessories are available to optimize machine performance when testing finer samples or special materials. The standard testing screen can be used to process material all the way down to No.200 (75µm) if less efficient separations are acceptable. These testing screens are available in two variations of clamping mechanism: a manually-operated, screw-type clamping handle, which is more economical, but slightly more labor-intensive for continuous use; and, a quick-acting hydraulic pump system used to clamp the screen trays in place. Trays are quickly secured and released using the same single handle. This more efficient model is recommended for labs with a steady workload of particle size testing.
