This terminology contains terms used in the description and procedure of analysis of the size of particulate materials through sieve analysis with standard testing sieves and is applicable to the work of many ASTM technical committees. For a composite listing of published ASTM standards using standard testing sieves, refer to .
While some of the terms appearing in this terminology may also be used in the description, procedure, and end products of production screening (either on a batch-fed or continuous basis), it is the intent of this terminology to present the definitions and usage of terms strictly in the context of sieve analysis using standard testing sieves.View Less
1.1 This terminology includes all those terms used in all of the standards under the jurisdiction of Subcommittee E29.01. Terms are defined that are related to the manufacture of standard test sieves and screening media, as well as terms related to the methods, analysis, procedures, and equipment for sizing and separating particles.
1.2 Committee E29 on Particle and Spray Characterization feels that it is essential to include terms and definitions explicit to the scope, regardless of whether the terms appear in existing ASTM standards. Terms that are in common usage and appear in common-language dictionaries are generally not included.
