In our business, we use the word “sieve” to describe a piece of equipment that separates different sized particles  using a woven wire screen. To others, “sieve” can mean something very different.

Do You Re-Certify? Compare with a Master Stack? Check with Calibration Samples?

What Does Recertification Give?

The ASTM E-11 committee has done a great job of establishing three levels of testing. These levels show the probability of a sieve’s mesh to be within the permissible variations. These variations relate to the size of openings in wire-cloth used for test sieves.

 Is Sieve Calibration Really the Holy Grail? Part II: Inside a Sieve Test 

As I start on this second installment of The Adventures of Pequeño: The 150 Micron Particle, I wonder why I get myself into these serial onslaughts. However, a promise is a promise, so I shall press on.

You will recall from Part I: Sieve Certification, our little friend Pequeño, a particle on a determined quest to make it through sieves -- particularly those through which he should be too large to pass. In this scenario, Pequeño along with some of his family and friends -- all small particles about 150 microns in size -- are on their way to a sieve test.
