Test Sieves

Reliable test sieves are the foundation of accurate and repeatable test sieve analysis results. But as with any tool you use in your particle size analysis lab, the sieves you use must fit your budget to make sense.

Now, it comes as no surprise that test sieve pricing varies throughout the market. The best way to figure out where a desired test sieve brand fits in your budget is to request a quote.

What Does the Test Sieve Buying Process Look Like?


When inquiring about test sieves, the buying process is initiated when you reach out to request a quote. During this process, you will be asked several questions about your test sieve stack to get the best idea of the price of the order.

A personalized quote will then be generated and sent to you. At this point, you can either submit a purchase order or palace the order over the phone with a credit card.

Once your order is processed, all the sieves will be marked, packed, and shipped out. In most cases, shipping is carried out through UPS.


What Information Do I Need When Requesting a Test Sieve Quote?

To get the best possible estimate on test sieve pricing, there are several pieces of information that you should have ready when reaching out. Test sieve specifications such as the diameter of the test sieves, what alloy your sieves would be constructed from, the height of the test sieves, and the various mesh sizes needed to build the test sieve stack.


What Lead Times Should I Expect With a Test Sieve Quote?

Generally, you can expect to receive a quote within a day of the request. A major contributor to how long it will take to receive a quote is the order volume.

In other words, a quote for a single test sieve will be sent quicker than a quote for nine sieves of variating mesh sizes.
