Centrifugal sieve segregation in micro gravity

John Terrell Fruit, Myles Kristian Alexander Martinez, Christopher Dreyer & Otis Walton
Sieving in space could be crucial to applications such as yielding smaller material for construction and extraction. Thus, improvements were implemented to a centrifugal sieve which included: Labview operating VI for motor control; power measurement via current; screen replacement and maintenance; Shaker subVI ('Jolt command'). In addition, the lunar simulant JSC-1a was tested through the system to analyze the sieve's efficiency with 100 micron screen. This can also play a role in eliminating foul material...
