Sieve analysis can be done wet, dry or a combination of both. A core sample is agitated and disaggregated through stacked sieves, decreasing in size from top to bottom.
The material remaining in the sieve is then weighed to determine the distribution of quantity versus sieve size. With decades of experience in this field, Retsch pride themselves in cutting-edge technology and innovation. Aware of the increasing demands of particle size analysis, we constantly meet our customer requirements with our wide range of reliable, precise, high-quality test sieves for professional use.
Sieve analysis is generally used for monitoring and analysing the grain-size distribution of a prepared sample. The particle size distribution is critical to the way a material performs in use.
Sieve analysis can be carried out on all types of organic and non-organic granular materials such as sands, clays, coals, crushed rock, granite, soil, as well as many different manufactured powders, seeds and grain.
