The procedure has four parts (Figure 1) but for this experiment only one part, Part A, was of interest, which is the wet sieving of the soil.
Sand, silt and clay fractions were separated by a combination of wet sieving and sedimentation after dispersion as described above.
The particles size distribution of DMS was obtained by wet sieving and hydrometer analysis [11].
mosseae from above inoculums were isolated, and the number was 5.6 spores/g inoculum, as determined by the wet sieving method (Gerdemann and Nicolsom, 1963).
Well known for its iconic Alpine Air Jet Sieve for laboratory sieving and particle size measuring of fine powders, Hosokawa Micron has now introduced the Viblette[TM] VBL for fast, accurate wet sieving in the laboratory.
The suspension was passed through the ASTM-60, ASTM-100, ASTM-240 and ASTM-400 sieves gradually to extract the spores followed by wet sieving and decanting method [15].
Almost three-quarters of the remaining aggregates were > 2 mm in diameter after wet sieving. Similarly, more large aggregates >2 mm occurred in the 0.10-0.20 m soil layers, after 8 years of growth, compared with the 2-year area.
Whilst the most accurate method of determining the settling velocity characteristics of soil is to use the bottom withdrawal tube methodology of Lovell and Rose (1988), in this paper the characteristics were determined by wet sieving to give a size distribution for Scone and Gunnedah, which was then converted into settling velocity using the equation of Cheng (1997).
The AS 200 control accepts sieve stacks from 100 mm to 8 inches diameter and is suitable for dry or wet sieving. Retsch, Inc.
The grain size composition of sediment samples was determined by wet sieving. The previously frozen samples were melted and soaked in water for about 48 h.
