Supplying quality, engineered test sieves
Glenammer Soil Testing Set
We are pleased to introduce our new sieve package, Soil Testing set. This set is designed to assist soil laboratory analysis. The set is made of 200 mm/8" diameter sieves with suitable aperture sizes and accessories.
To help with the soil testing projects, we have designed a set of 200 mm diameter sieves with the following aperture sizes: 75.00 mm (3 in), 37.50 mm (1½ in), 9.50 mm (3/8 in), 6.30 mm (1/4 in), 4.75 mm (No.4), 2.00 mm (No.10), 850 microns (No.20), 600 microns (No.30), 425 microns (No.40), 300 microns (No.50), 250 microns (No.60), 150 microns (No.100) , 106 microns (No.140), 75 microns (No.200), lid, receiver and a brush. The total cost for the set is £720.
Please note that the aperture sizes in the set can be changed on customers request.
In BS standard
If soil sample passes through the 75.00 mm sieve but does not pass the 2.00 mm sieve. This soil is classified as gravel.
Soils that passes through the 2.00 mm sieve but is retained on the 75 microns sieve is classified as sand.
Sand are further broken down as coarse sand, medium or fine sand. Coarse sand passes through the 2.00 sieve and is retained on the 425 microns sieve.
Fine sand passes through the 300 microns sieve and is retained on the 75 microns sieve.
Silt passes through 75 microns sieve and is retained on 2 microns
Any sample which passes through 2 microns is defined as Clay
