Principle of functioning

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.

. Furthermore the recommendations of the ASTM-D 1514 standard must be used.


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 carbons. Applications for anorganic pigments and fillers / extenders are also possible.
