An investigation into the reproducibility of the sieving process using
various diameter electroformed sieves has been performed. Sieve diameters
of 2.54 cm, 7.62 cm, and 20.32 cm (1 in., 3 in., and 8 in.) were studied.
Sampling efficiency was then examined to determine the accessibility of the
small samples necessary for use on the small sieves. [Continues.]
