Nine Sieve Shakers for a Wide Range of Sieve Test Applications
We offer sieve shakers to fit a wide range of product applications. Contact us if you need help choosing the right sieve shaker for your company.
Our general purpose sieve shakers can handle most products, but some applications can be a little trickier.
For sieving heavy samples, or if you need larger diameter sieves, try one of our heavy duty sieve shakers.
For small particle sizes that tend to agglomerate or are otherwise difficult to sieve using traditional methods, our small particle size sieve shakers may be the perfect fit.

These two sieve shakers are bench top models. The CSC Meinzer II is comparatively light and works on a wide range of materials. The Octagon 200 has a larger base and includes the added flexibility of adjustable amplitude and intermittent operation. Both sieve shakers are of modern, quiet design.
Because the Meinzer II is the most economical sieve shaker we offer, the next most important things you need to consider are the nature of the products to be tested and the size of the sample. The Meinzer II should head the list for consideration when the product flows freely, requires a minimum fines analysis of more than 38 microns and is not subject to static charge. These product characteristics, combined with sample sizes of less than eight (8) pounds (4 kg), point strongly to the use of this shaker. Further, the Meinzer II ranks for 3” (100 mm) diameter sieves. Remember, it is quiet.
Probably the first step in considering an Octagon Sieve Shaker is related to finding a quiet shaker. This shaker fills that bill; no need to shout during the course of a sieve test. When you need to get the shaker motion just right so that the test material spends a maximum time on the sieves (does not fly around), or have the sample resist agglomeration and the results duplicate a different shaker or specification, the Octagon 200 series shakers should top the list for consideration.
The three sieve shakers in this category have been especially designed for tough sieve testing applications. They include the old standby the DuraTap and the new EFL 300, which replaces the EFL 2000 and D300 sieve shakers. These are joined by the heavy duty, digitally-controlled and quiet Titan 450, which replaces the old D450 sieve shaker.
Get the DuraTap™ when you need to match older test standards or want to replace high maintenance RoTap© machines.
uses 8” - 12” diameter sieves (200 - 300 mm)
holds six (6) full height or thirteen (13) half height 8” (200mm) sieves, or three (3) full height or seven (7) intermediate 12” (300 mm) sieves
The Titan 450 Sieve Shaker is the instrument to choose when you have large sample weights and you need the large sieve area of 18” (400 mm) diameter sieves. With this massive capacity you also get effective screening down to the 125 micron size. If you need the 20kg feature, you also have a precise control of amplitude and intervals.
uses 12" - 18" diameter sieves (250 - 450 mm)
holds seven (7) full height or ten (10) half height sieves
The instruments in this category are designed to deal with the special problems of separating small particles. By small particles we mean smaller than 100 micron. These work with dry material and, in addition to facilitating the passing of these small particles through screens as small as 2 microns, they also deal with the problems of particles flying above the screen, agglomeration and static clumping. We have three items in this category: the economical vacuum sieve shaker CSC/Reynolds instrument, the Air Jet Sizer 200, and the multi-sieve Sonic Sifter.
This CSC-Reynolds Vacuum Siever is offered as a cost-effective alternative to meet basic needs of sieving or particle separation:
The CSC-Reynolds Vacuum Siever provides an economical way to deal with these problems. It gives a range of adjustment for the vacuum part of the process and the ability to automatically time your tests.
holds one (1) 8 inch diameter sieve*
If you need to separate particles below the 100μm size and find that you have problems with getting particles through the sieves, experience agglomeration and static clings or undergo blinding, the Sonic Sifter may be your answer.
Most sieve-based systems take a significant amount of shaking time when compared to the 10 second Sonic Sifter test time for most materials.
If your solution has been wet sieving for small particle separation, the ease of set up and the test process of the Sonic Sifter may be enough incentive to switch.
uses 3” diameter (76.2mm) acrylic-framed sieves
holds six (6) wire mesh or three (3) electroformed nickel sieves
small batch capacity

If you are working with particles that have the following attributes, a vacuum siever should be high on the list of test equipment:
The Air Sizer 200 has operational characteristics designed to solve these problems. In addition this siever has precise controls of the rotating air jet, the vacuum levels and the test times. These facets of the instrument’s design let you set optimized testing parameters that can be repeated test to test for the same material.
