Visitors to our web pages often arrive with the question, “What is the Function of a Sieve Shaker?”
Quiet Sieve Shakers
Recently in a quiet, reflective moment, I recalled my first work with sieve shakers. Horizontal motion with tapping was the basic shaker design. The Ro-Tap® was King, and there were few alternatives. Different shakers for special applications, such as the Mary Jane and one that was hung from the ceiling, were the exception.Read More

However, the problem with standard sieving techniques using wire mesh sieves is that they begin to exhibit accuracy problems in the lower micron sizes.
When I tell people at cocktail parties that we specialize in Particle-Size Analysis. I usually get a polite response of ------ “OH !!,” which translates to “So who cares?”
