Wet Sieving Apparatus

To determine the aggregate stability of a soil for plant growth. Our Wet Sieving Apparatus eliminates the need for expensive drying ovens, chemicals, long waiting periods and expensive balances. So it works on the principle that unstable aggregates will break down more easily than stable aggregates when immersed in water. Used in for plant growth research.
