Definitions for "Sieve Analysis"
the determination of the percentage of particles that pass through several screens of graduated fineness
Sieve Analysis: A method of determining particle size distribution.
The classic sieve analysis of bulk material in powder form is being replaced more and more by laser diffraction measurement, which enables even very fine particles (smaller than 0.01 mm) to be determined reliably and quickly. MÃ1/4hlenchemie uses both classic sieve analysis and a Particle Sizer (Malvern).
