510-36 0982 Test method of particle size and particle size distribution in Pharmacopoeia 2015 edition-HMKTest Air Jet Sieve

It is stipulated in pharmacopoeia 2015 edition that Air jet sieving method should be used in terms of samples with particle size less than 75μm. See the details below pharmacopoeia 2015 edition “particle size and particle size distribution test method”. In addition to meeting the requirements of pharmacopoeia, HMK-200 Intelligent Touch Screen Air Jet Sieve 51598 and Standard Air Jet Sieve 51298 meet the requirements of both US Pharmacopoeia and European Pharmacopoeia. It is widely used in the world and has a large number of customers from pharmaceutical companies and other industries.

Air jet sieving method

Only use one sieve every time. If the particle size distribution needs to be determined, it should be carried out from the sieve with the smallest pore size. Except as otherwise herein provided, take the drug sieve with a diameter of 200mm and weigh it. According to the volume density of the test product, also known as bulk density, apparent density, pine density and so on, the test product 25-100g is taken, placed in the drug sieve, and capped on the sieve. Set the pressure and air jet for 5 minutes. Take the sieve and weigh. According to the weight difference before and after sieving, calculate the proportion (%) of particles and powder on the drug sieve. Repeat the above operation until the two sieving, the difference in the weight of particles and powder left on the drug sieve should not exceed 5% of the weight of the previous particles and powder left on the sieve, or the difference in the two weights should not be greater than 0.1g. If the weight of particles and powders left on the sieve is less than 5% of the sample, the weight difference of two consecutive times should not exceed 20%.

In conclusion, the air jet sieving method is more suitable for beginners to operate than other methods such as light scattering method, which is simple and feasible. Laser particle size analyzer, by contrast, is more complex, error-prone, and error-prone than air jet sieving calculations because they require the powder to be placed in a liquid first, which changes the physical properties of the drug. Sieving method is the final standard for testing laser method, for the standard samples used in the laser method are traceable to the sieving method.

Therefore, HMK-200 Intelligent Touch Screen Air Jet Sieve is more and more widely used in the pharmaceutical industry.

AIR-200 Air Jet Sieve P/N 51298A


AIR-200 Air Jet Sieve is a laboratory air jet sieve used to measure the particle size distribution of powders. It is composed of operation panel, sieve plate, standard sieve, nozzle, motor and vacuum. It is controlled through 7 inch LCD screen. Display the working status of the instrument in real time. The instrument can be connected to the electronic scale through the RS-232 interface. The built-in microprocessor can automatically calculate the results.  The AIR-200 Air Jet Sieve is designed and manufactured by international advanced sieving technology. The main parameters and performance of the instrument are consistent with the imported instrument. Moreover, the price of the instrument is reasonable and the supporting services are perfect.

Operating principle

The nozzle with patented technology converts the negative pressure generated by the vacuum cleaner into kinetic energy, drives the powder up and collides with the sieve cover. The powder removed from the aggregates is then sucked into the standard sieve under negative pressure. Larger particles are left on the sieve and smaller particles are sucked into the vacuum cleaner to achieve the ideal sieving of powders.
