Deep Frame Wet-Wash Sieves are used for fines content determinations or to wash away excessive fines when preparing specimens for particle size testing. They’re especially useful when handling fragile specimens. Gilson regularly stocks ASTM E11 Compliance grade Wet-Wash sieves with deep frames to contain wash water.
Model numbers with a BU suffix are supplied with No. 30 Backing Cloth for additional support and to reduce wear. Verification of New Sieves upgrades ASTM and ISO Test Sieves to Inspection or Calibration grade.
3in (76mm), 8in (203mm), and 12in (305mm) Wet-Wash Sieve frames will nest with standard sieves, pans, and covers. Models are available in all stainless steel construction or as brass frames with stainless steel cloth in ASTM No. 100, No. 200, and No. 325 sizes. Contact us for other available cloth sizes. All models have drainage holes in the lower flange. The overall height of sieves is approximately 0.75-1in (19-25mm) greater than the height above the cloth.
Brass Frames are traditional and suitable for most applications.
Stainless steel frames are more economical, offer better durability, and much longer service life compared to brass models.
