Standard testing sieves are widely used to separate and grade soil samples. Entomologists also find them indispensable for successively reducing the bulk of soil material from which insects are collected.
This stacked set consists of four stainless steel screens of graduated mesh sizes, a solid pan at the bottom, and a lid. Soil sample or forest litter is placed in the top container, and the entire set agitated so that particles of various size drop through and are sorted by size.
The sieve kit contains four high-impact plastic screens, 6-3/4″ x 3″, with wire mesh Nos. 5 (4 mm), 10 (2 mm), 60 (250 micron), and 230 (63 micron).
