Is Test Sieve Certification All You Need?

Posted by Art Gatenby on Oct 29, 2015 1:45:10 PM

For several years, people in the test sieving business have been grousing about the difficulty of making sure that a test sieve certification is what they need. Anyone who is working with close tolerances in the smaller particle sizes, like 300 microns and smaller, have serious issues in matching results from test sieve to test sieve.

Who's Concerned About Sieve Shakers?

Posted by Art Gatenby on Mar 11, 2011 12:33:00 PM


The primary purpose of a sieve shaker is to provide motion to a sample in a test sieve.

An effective sieve shaker creates a motion that presents all the particles to all of the sieve openings and assists particles in passing through. This requires both rotary and vertical motion.

This process seems simple enough, but let's not be taken in.

Static Electricity and Sieves: No Problem -- Maybe

Posted by Art Gatenby on Apr 21, 2010 2:02:00 PM

I'll bet that most of you have experienced the shock of walking on a thick wool rug on a dry winter's day and getting zapped out of your reverie when reaching for the metal door knob.


The same process of static electricity generation can play havoc with your sieving process.
