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. All Wet-Wash sieves have extra-deep frames above the wire cloth to contain wash water but will also nest with standard pans, covers, and other ASTM sieves.
Popular models listed are in stock and feature stainless steel cloth in ASTM No. 100 (150µm, No. 200 (75µm), and No. 325 (45µm) sizes, with stainless steel or brass frames in 12in (305mm), 8in (203mm), or 3in (76mm) diameters. Contact Us for additional mesh sizes.
Verification of New Sieves upgrades the Compliance grade to Inspection or Calibration grade.
The 3in (76mm), 8in (203mm), and 12in (305mm) Wet-Wash Sieve frames will nest with standard sieves, pans, and covers. All models have holes in the lower flange for water drainage.
The overall height of sieves is approximately 0.75-1in (19-25mm) greater than the height above the cloth.
Model numbers with a "BU" suffix are supplied with No. 30 Backing Cloth for additional support and to reduce wear. Sieves ordered with Backing Cloth are non-returnable.
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.
