Sieving analysis is widely used in particle metrology in laboratories all over the world. It is the least expensive particle analysis method. However, one of the largest sources of variation in sieving analysis is the test sieves themselves due to the fact that internationally agreed standards for mesh manufacturing have a small tolerance in the standards (ISO 3310 and ASTM E11). Wire size, average aperture size and uniformity of aperture are specified with a certain set of tolerances in test sieve manufacturing.
The optical microscope is the most common and accurate calibration method at present. A large number of apertures and wires are selected to be measured in warp and weft directions. The distance between wires is measured as aperture size and wire width is measured as wire diameter. Continue to Read About Test Sieve Calibration.
Calibrating the test sieves regularly can minimize the analysis errors in experiments. Glenammer can provide calibration services for brand new test sieves as well as used test sieves. Calibrated test sieves are supplied with full certificates. Traceable digital calibration reports are stored and available on request.
In-House ISO Calibration: 2-3 working days.
IPAC Calibration - equivalence to UKAS Calibration: approximately 2 weeks.
- Please note that ALL Glenammer test sieves come with a Certificate of Conformity.
- If you require a new test sieve with a Calibration Certificate, please add the desired type of calibration service to cart and click here to add your sieve.
- If you would like to calibrate your current test sieves, please complete the order and send your sieve to Glenammer's address below:
