8. Can I order a brass sieve from Glenammer?

Glenammer only supplies stainless steel test sieves because stainless steel is a much stronger material than brass. It is more environmentally friendly. We strongly believe that although it is a more expensive material than brass, it is however the best material to make sieves from. (Please remember that all pharmaceutical areas as well as food use stainless steel and never brass.)

9. How can I protect my sieve from damage?

It is very important to use the correct aperture size for your samples, we would also recommend to nest a bigger aperture size sieve over a fine mesh sieve. Any woven wire test under 90 μm, Glenammer manufactures them with a backing mesh to protect the fine screen.
