The Talisman Sieves for Wet or Dry Materials
Assembly instructions

Special Features

A range of three sieves for different purposes made from lightweight resilient plastic. A rotary mouli type sieve for sieving large batches of glaze or slip, and a smaller hand type sieve for smaller batches. These both use the same interchangeable push in and out screens in a variety of mesh sizes. Also available is a very small test/mini sieve with fixed mesh in a variety of mesh sizes for test batches of glaze or for sieving stains.

Rotary Sieve

The Rotary Sieve (pic 1) has a tapered, plastic body which fits firmly on any round container. Handle extension allows it to rest on extra large containers (pic 2).

Push-in screens with moulded rubber rims are interchangeable. Stainless steel screens available in the following meshes: 10#, 20#, 30#, 40#, 50#, 60#, 80#, 100#, 120#, 150# and 200# (pic 3).

Either wet or dry materials can be sieved quickly. For example, dry ash can be put through a screen as fine as 100 mesh.

The brush-cluster is rotated against the screen by turning the handle and the pressure required is regulated simply by pressing on the handle as it is turned.

Brushes are held in a moulded plastic centre-piece sufficiently tightly to ensure that they maintain contact with the screen even if this distorts with use.

Brushes have nylon bristles set in a plastic back; they won't absorb colour and are easily washed. They are long-lasting, yet easily replaced.

After use, the screen can be removed and the brush-cluster pushed through the bottom of the sieve for easy washing.

The handle is easily removed for easier transport, or if several brush-heads are needed for different purposes - eg, for wet or dry uses.

The handle runs in a graphite-impregnated nylon bearing well clear of the abrasive materials being used.

When dismantled, the sieve can be sent by parcel post. It comes with clear instructions for assembling.
