Time-Saving Photostability Solutions for Consumer Goods 2/14 ¤ eFOOD-Lab international 3 Elma ultrasonic te st sieve cleaning, now also for te st sieves up to 500 mm Cleaning of analysis sieves, HPLC solvent degassing and ultrasonic sample preparations – all in one unit With the Elmasonic S 50 R and the new Elmasonic S 350 R, Elma has developed new program-controlled ultrasonic cleaners in the LabTechnology series. Elma focusses strictly on the customer benefits, i.e. the laboratory applications. The focus points are the test sieve cleaning, HPLC solvent degassing and the laboratory applications such as the removal of difficult to dissolve substances, emulsion manufacture and the reaction acceleration. To optimally solve these applications, the customer benefits were measured using two independent laboratories, extensive tests were performed and the results implemented consistently and practically during the development of the unit. The units are designed round and the sufficiently high ultrasound power is distributed as evenly as possible both horizontally as well as vertically. The test sieve cleaning is performed in a special sieve holder. Test sieves here can be quickly and effectively cleaned in the Elmasonic S 50 R using a special ultrasound mode (program with ultrasound shock waves). If a larger number of test sieves accumulates, Elma provides an electrically operated rotation basket using which screening material residues can be intensively removed from four sieves simultaneously (rotation basket can be used in the Elmasonic S 300). In order to also create an optimally quiet work place atmosphere, the unit can be placed in an optionally available noise protection box which reduces the operating noises by a factor of 3, extracts water vapour and at the same time guarantees an uninterrupted view via the window. The different applications such as sieve cleaning, degassing or sample preparation and treatment require special ultrasound modes. These have been optimised in practical tests with the laboratory users and stored in programs. The users simply press the Sieve Cleaning, Degas or Sample Preparation button and the unit then operates in the respective stored ultrasound mode. Elma, the ultrasonic cleaning specialist, now has the most extensive range of units for cleaning laboratory test sieves. Previously, the focus was on sieves up to 200 mm diameter. There was a gap in the range for the cleaning of very large sieves, partly up to 500 mm diameter. Like the round Elmasonic S 50 R, the new Elmasonic S 350 R also has a special sieve cleaning program, using which the correct ultrasound parameters can be activated quickly and easily by pressing a button. Additional benefits of the Elmasonic S 50 R and S 350 R units are the additional functions for HPLC solvent degassing and for sample pretreatment.
