A test sieve is a screening medium, with openings of uniform size and shape, mounted on a rigid frame.
To put it simply, a test sieve is a tool that uses metal cloth with holes in it to separate some kind of particles from materials.
Wire mesh sieves are the most widely used test sieves for all types of laboratory particle size analysis. They are made with only the highest quality materials and test sieves can be supplied with aperture sizes ranging from 125 mm down to 20 µm and in full or half height versions.
What do you do with a test sieve?
Imagine someone shaking a pan full of dirt and water looking for pieces of gold. As they shake the pan up and down and from side to side, the small pieces of dirt and water fall through the openings in the screen. The bigger pieces of rocks don’t go through the holes, and they can search through what’s left in the pan for gold.
At a very basic level, this is a test sieve.
Test sieves are used in all kinds of industries to perform particle analysis. Sometimes the particles are super fine, like in the food or pharmaceutical industry. Sometimes the particles can be larger, like in the agricultural and mining industry.
Test Sieve is Control Sieve, applies in the accurate analysis of granularity structures of particle and power materials, and the testing analysis of solid content in liquid for laboratories, quality control rooms, and scientific research departments.
It is widely used in testing analysis of chemical, pharmaceutical, food, building materials, powder metallurgy, and material in the processing process of sewage and wastewater from the environmental protection industry.
Components of a Test Sieve
Mesh/Screen: The mesh is the most technical part of a test sieve. The most commonly used type of mesh is stainless steel woven wire mesh.
Frame: The frame is the round metal circle that holds the mesh in place. Sieve frames can be made of stainless steel or brass.
Skirt: The main function of the skirt is to allow the sieves to be stacked without toppling over.
How Much Does A Test Sieve Cost?
There are hundreds of different sieves you can buy with all combinations of alloys and mesh types.
Typically, A sieve can cost anywhere from $30 to $900.
