The contract manufacturing facility is strategically located on the east coast and is only an hour from the port of Newark. The tolling facility is over 20,000 square feet and has 8 bays dedicated to toll sifting. The plant is designed to house ten truckloads of material and has strict procedures to track every pound of material that comes through. The toll sifting operation is carried out using Elcan’s exclusive line of high-energy and tumbler screeners. These systems are the most advanced sieving systems in the world and can separate powders down to sizes as fine as ten microns.
The toll sifting operation is ideal for companies that are looking for extra capacity, developing new products without being capitally committed to equipment, and for traders/brokers of powders. Toll sifting is also a great option for companies that have contaminated material that require a one-time sifting job, rather than discarding the material. The ability to toll sift at fine sizes also allows companies to trial new products and send materials to their customers without having to purchase machinery. If the companies decide to buy a sifter, they can have full confidence in their purchase as they will have already run thousands of pounds on the same equipment.
Elcan uses multiple different approaches to separate materials at any size range. Elcan’s exclusive line of Hi-Sifters is great for companies looking to separate powders at both fine and coarse sizes. The systems employ a high-energy approach that can separate products that are typically difficult to screen using conventional or ultrasonic screeners. Elcan also uses tumbler screeners for powders that require a finesse approach to screening, rather than the energy approach. This Is great for angular particles that are difficult to separate or for very lightweight powders. There is also an Elbow Jet air classifier in the lab that can separate powders down to 1 micron. These systems allow companies to maximize their yield and hit even the tightest of particle specifications.
Elcan’s toll sifting operation has expanded in recent years to accommodate the needs of our customers. Other tolling services offered include packaging, magnetic separation, blending, delumping, and hammer milling as well. Elcan also houses a state-of-the-art particle analysis laboratory where we run tests on all of the powders being run in-house and also help companies looking for PSD reports. The lab has a Malvern Mastersizer 3000 as well as ROTAP, jet sieve, and moisture analysis equipment as well. Elcan can generate COAs for customers and offers finished packaging services allowing companies to ship directly from Elcan to their end customer.
Elcan Industries offers unparalleled levels of screening capabilities that provide excellent efficiencies on even the hardest to screen chemicals, powdered metals, glass and ceramics, foods, plastics, minerals, oil drilling muds, pharmaceuticals, electronic materials, and coating systems.
