DIY Sieve Filter

7 posts in this topic

We need a creative tinkerer to design a inexpensive DIY gravity fed Sieve filter. They are great devices but for most of us the price makes having one impossible. If I can find a very fine stainless grate I might even try to build one.

IMHO to be effective a sieve needs to incorporate a wedge wire sieve bend which ain't cheap to begin with.

heres a tip .. look for the quarries nearby.. those that make sandpaper sand.. they use microsifts for the finest grades.. once ONE hole gets in the sieve.. they have to throw it... leaving PLENTY of space for you guys to cut out the sheet(s) you need for DIY sieves.....

What is a wedge wire sieve? Why do you need to use a stainless steel screen why not something else...say a window screen material or plankton net material?
