What is manual sieve shaker?

They use a shaking motion to move particles down through a series of test sieves in a stack. The coarser materials are retained higher in the stack and the finer materials fall to the bottom. All our manual sieve shakers deliver consistent, repeatable results that are substantially more reproducible than hand sieving.

What is Rotap?

A RO-TAP is a particle analysis machine that is used in all kinds of industries to test and separate particles. An oscillating motion is used to shake particles down through a series of different test sieves in a stack.

What are the factors that can affect the shaking time in sieve analysis?

There are many factors effect on sieve operation such as:

  • Size and shape of particles,
  • Mesh size of the sieve,
  • The amount of material on the sieve surface,
  • The rate of movement of the material relative to the sieve surface,
  • Sieve blinding when particles block up and lodge in the sieving mesh.

What is sieving where it is used?

Sieving is a method in which fine particles are sieved through holes of the sieve while the bigger impurities remain on the sieve. Sieving is used in a flour mill to separate impurities like husk and stones from wheat before grinding it. It is also used at construction sites to separate pebbles and stones from sand.

What is the importance of sieve analysis?

Performing a sieve analysis is important when analyzing materials because their particle size distribution can affect a wide range of properties such as the strength of concrete, the solubility of a mixture, their surface area properties and even their taste.

What is manual sieving?

Hand sieving is the process of taking a single sieve or sieve stack and manually tapping and rotating it until all the particles have passed through. While not as accurate as other particle analysis methods, it is a quick way to gain a general understanding of the particle quality of a given sample.

How do you do sieving?

Step 1: Take a representative oven-dried sample that weighs approximately 500g. Step 2: If particles are lumped or conglomerated, crush the lumps but not the particles using the pestle and mortar. Step 3: Determine the mass of sample accurately – Weight (g). Step 4: Prepare a stack of test sieves.
