Whitehouse Scientific measures up to sieves

Following the success of its precision glass microspheres for calibrating 200mm diameter sieves, Whitehouse Scientific is introducing a new set of single dose standards for 100mm and 40mm test sieves.

Following the success of its precision glass microspheres for calibrating 200mm diameter sieves, Whitehouse Scientific is introducing a new set of single dose standards for 100mm and 40mm test sieves.

The new standards can be used to calibrate mesh sizes from 20 to 3350µm and are accurate down to 1µm. Unlike the ISO microscopic method of calibration (which requires 10 different parameters to specify a sieve mesh and analyses less than 1% of the sieve surface), the microsphere method measures at least 80% of the surface and produces one unambiguous result, the equivalent spherical aperture. This is effectively the cut point of the sieve and makes sieve matching very easy.

The test takes minutes to perform and sieves need not be returned to the manufacturer. All measurements are traceable to NIST.
