Sieve Residue According ASTM D1514
TEST SET A 2000 testing device for the analysis of sieve residue –
Compliant to ASTM D1514, ISO 1437 as well as JIS K 6218-3.
Inside the TEST SET A 2000 testing device the pigment or filler to be tested is flushed through a sieve by a water jet which is situated inside the container. The fine materials are separated from the coarse materials by the water and the fine particles are flushed through a sieve. The sieve residue is spread thin, washed again (approx. 2 min.), dried and gravimetrically analysed according to the guidelines. Appropriate sieves (main range ISO 565) must be used according to the different testing guidelines.
The percentage of the components of impurities is specifically prescribed and is analysed in order to maintain the desired product quality. The TEST SET A 2000 quickly provides the result which can be adjusted to the prescribed limiting values within the quality control. The TEST SET A 2000 is particularly important for extruded products and spinnable fibres.
It provides reproducible results even for the most difficult products.
EXAMPLES FOR APPLICATION
The TEST SET A 2000 is used worldwide mainly for carbon black. Applications for inorganic pigments and fillers / extenders are also possible.
Used for gravimetrical analysis and checks of pigments and fillers /extenders within the quality control
