Superior drive mechanism
®
EasySieve software
The core of each RETSCH projection
sieve shaker is the electromagnetic
drive. It produces an optimal throwing
motion that moves the product to be
sieved equally over the whole sieving
surface. The drive can take a high
stress load and is very effective, so
that the sieving time is greatly reduced.
Furthermore, this patented RETSCH
technology runs without wear and
does not require maintenance.
Comfortable handling and efficient working
Cleaners and dryers
Clamping test sieves does not get any easier, faster and safer than with the
clamping device “comfort”. The trick: simply press the upper lever to clamp
the sieves tight. After the sieving is completed, the sieve stack can be withdrawn without having to completely take off the lid. Thus, time and power
are saved.
In all “control” models, 9 different parameter combinations can be saved in the sieve shaker. Thus, repetitive
sieve analyses can be performed quickly and efficiently.
Errors due to wrong parameter entries are prevented.

with equal acceleration” means obtaining worldwide comparable and reproducible results, completely independent of operational parameters such as
power frequency, load, age or condition of the machine. An advantage that
only RETSCH sieve shakers offer.
Calibration
All RETSCH analytical sieve shakers of the series “control” and all RETSCH
test sieves can be calibrated and thus may be used in quality control
according to DIN EN ISO 9000 ff. RETSCH supplies high-quality products
that you can rely on.
Fit for the future
All RETSCH model “control” sieve shakers are equipped
with a serial interface to allow for an automated workflow.
®
Using the software EasySieve , the sieve shaker can be
operated from a PC and the whole sieving process can be
monitored and documented, visible for you on the screen.
High quality test sieves
Due to an optimised and highly modern production
process, RETSCH offers you test sieves of unparalleled
quality and precision. Thus, RETSCH meets and exceeds
the highest requirements that are demanded today in
particle size analyses. Better sieves guarantee better,
exact results.
Form follows function
RETSCH laboratory instruments also show their technical superiority from the
outside. The modern and ergonomic design of the instruments expresses the
many technical innovations that are incorporated in them. The AS 200 was
already awarded a design prize.

The AS 200 control complies with the
highest requirements in quality assurance. One particular characteristic
makes this RETSCH product stand out
from others: Instead of the vibration
height, also the sieve acceleration
independent of the power frequency can be set. Thus, the AS 200
control ensures comparable and reproducible sieving results worldwide. It can be calibrated to ensure
100% reproducibility of sieving results,
not only in one device, but among all
AS 200 control units! Thus, the requirement for the test materials
monitoring according to DIN EN
ISO 9000 ff is met. Its microprocessor-controlled measuring and
control unit ensures a constant vibration height. With regard to operational
convenience, the AS 200 control meets

AS 300 control
The sieve shakers AS 200 control
and AS 300 control are activated
in its natural frequency. This
means, the sieving frequency
changes with the loading of the
instrument. It depends on the
weight of the sieve stack and the
quantity of the loaded product to
be sieved. In order to ensure the
reproducibility of the results even
in short-time sieving procedures,
the default setting of the vibration
height can be switched to sieve
acceleration (sieving with equal
acceleration). Thus, the instruments work completely independent of operational parameters
such as power frequency,
loading, age, or condition of
the unit.

All sieving parameters are set, displayed and monitored digitally. The
microprocessor-controlled measuring

to sieves with a diameter of 200 mm,
a 2.25 times higher sieving surface is
thus available. Therefore, the average
sieving times can be greatly reduced
with the AS 300 control. Another advantage is the very high feed quantity (up to 6 kg) that can be separated in one working run. Repetitive
operations can be greatly simplified
with the possibility to store up to
9 parameter combinations directly

Therefore, the RETSCH sieve
shakers AS 200 control and
AS 300 control are the only sieve
shakers to feature the possibility
of eliminating influences of error
by different sieving frequencies
via automatic adjustment of the
amplitude (patents D 19 522 987,
USA 5,791,494). An amplitude of
more than 2 mm can be achieved
under all nominal load conditions,
and the sieve acceleration achieved
in this can be as high as 17 g

Sieve acceleration (g)
The chart makes it clear: even
with large differences in the frequency, sieving processes with
equal acceleration always achieve
fully coinciding results, independent of the sieving time. This is
because the sieve acceleration is
the decisive factor for the passage
of the particles through the sieve.
AS 400 control
Sieving on one level
The RETSCH AS 400 control is used for the sieving of
dry goods with test sieves of a diameter up to 400 mm.
In this, the uniform, horizontal circular motion ensures
exact separation of the product to be sieved. Fine and
coarse-grained goods as found in the areas of milling,
brewing, chemical industry, quarrying, soils, woodworking
and plastics industry, can be exactly separated with the
AS 400 control. The horizontal circular motion of the product to be sieved is particularly suitable for the separation
of certain products, as milled grain, splints, and similar
materials. For the testing of plastics (grainy moulding
materials), the DIN 53 477 even requires the circular
sieving motion.

An integrated counter mass ensures
stability even with a high mass of the
sieve stack. The instrument can also
be secured to the laboratory bench if
desired. The base plate can take
very high loads due to 4 eccentric
guides. The AS 400 control has an
integrated interface for controlling
all sieving parameters via the

interface cable is included in delivery.
The AS 400 control is a robust device,
which meets highest requirements
due to its superior technology. The
possibility to clamp a wide range of
test sieves with various diameters on
the device ensures a versatile use
of the AS 400 control.
Technology of the AS 400
The base plate performs horizontal circular motions with a radius of
15 mm (according to DIN 53477).
The speed of 50 to 300 rpm is
electronically controlled. It is continuously adjustable to meet the
requirements of the product to be
sieved. The actual value of the
number of revolutions is digitally

with EasySieve
Simple, fast, and reliable
®
EasySieve , the software for particle size analyses, exceeds manual evaluation in many aspects, due to the fact
that the software is able to automatically perform the
necessary measurement and weighing procedures – from
the registration of the weight of the sieve up to the evaluation of the data. It is more simple and more comfortable to use than ever before, and, to put it simply, “easy”.
Due to the logical design of the software it is easier for
the user to get started with the program. The program
leads the user through the process step by step. Moreover, the abundance of evaluation possibilities allows for
absolute flexibility with regard to adjustment to demanding and individual tasks.

1. Parameter entry
All available parameters (such as sieve
stack configuration, dead weight of
the sieve, sieve shaker settings) as
well as the characteristics, which
may have to be calculated, can be
entered by clicking with the mouse in
the corresponding fields. Routine parameters can be entered, edited, saved
and recalled at a later time. Product
specific settings of the measurement
parameters are saved and ensure a
productive workflow.
2. Sieve analysis
The program accepts automatic and
manual data entries from both scale
and sieve system. All RETSCH sieve
shakers of the series “control” can be
automatically controlled with
®
EasySieve .
After the sieve analysis is completed,
the loaded sieves are reweighed. By
determining the weight difference,
the program automatically detects
the mass proportions and assigns
them accordingly to the corresponding fractions. All data are immediately available for further processing.
3. Evaluation
®
The EasySieve software calculates all
common particle distributions as well
as the characteristic values of the
particle size, thus making it possible
to present the results in standard
presentation forms, such as tables
and charts. Cumulative throughput or
residual values, distribution density
and histograms can be included in the
standard particle size distributions. In
addition to this, the program allows
for a trend analysis of production procedures, averaging and much more.
Last but not least, fineness and distribution characteristics as well as standard parameters can be selected.
