Easy handling, low investment cost and high accuracy make sieve analysis one of the most frequently used procedures for measuring the particle size. This white paper gives an overview of the different sieving techniques and describes the necessary steps to ensure reliable results.
Sieving is carried out to separate a sample into fractions according to its particle sizes by submitting it to mechanical force. The direction, intensity and type of force depends on the chosen sieving method.
Which factors need to be established to select a suitable sieving method?
- Particle size
- Sample properties
- Number of fractions
Different Sieving Methods
Once these questions are satisfactorily answered, a suitable sieving method can be selected.
This white paper describes the different sieving techniques.
- Vibrational sieving
- Wet sieving
- Horizontal sieving
- Tap sieving
- Air jet sieving
