Sieving Process

4SIEVESsmall.jpgSieving is the process of separating particles by size. The process started in ancient times in Egypt, where sieves were used to separate grain. Today there are high tech methods such as laser diffraction and image analysis used to determine particle size distribution. Other methods such as centrifuge techniques and sedimentation are also used. However, sieves are the most commonly used devices for particle size analysis. The sieving process is comparatively inexpensive, simple in concept and easy to use. 

Our selection includes frame diameters from 100mm / 4 inches to 450mm / 18 inches in stainless steel and brass frames.

Sieve mesh material options include stainless steel wire mesh in aperture sizes from 125 millimeters (5 inches) to 20 microns, electroformed openings as small as 2 microns, and perforated plate of various shaped holes.
