Meinzer II Sieve Shaker
Featured Product from CSC Scientific Company, Inc.
What Problems Does the CSC Meinzer II Solve?
The motion of the CSC Meinzer II Sieve Shaker is based on the original CSC Meinzer which formed the structure of the original AASHITO specification now know as T27. This shaker addresses several sieving problems:
- An economical shaker with a strong combination of vertical and horizontal motion.
- Obtaining repeatable results on materials not subject to excessive agglomeration or static clinging.
- A small size with easy operational characteristics.
Adjustable memory straps ease and simplify the loading, tightening and removal of sieves at the start and in between tests. With only a start button and memory timer, conducting a test is straightforward and requires only minimal training.
Unlike many shakers of its type the Meinzer II is quiet. We think the term whisper quiet best describes this shaker.

When Do You Select the Meinzer II Sieve Shaker?
Because the Meinzer II is the most economical sieve shaker we offer, the next most important things you need to consider are the nature of the products to be tested and the size of the sample. The Meinzer II should head the list for consideration when the product flows freely, requires a minimum fines analysis of more than 38 microns and is not subject to static charge. These product characteristics, combined with sample sizes of less than eight (8) pounds (4 kg), point strongly to the use of this shaker. Further, the Meinzer II ranks for 3" (100 mm) diameter sieves. Remember, it is quiet.
In summary, the Meinzer II should be considered when the product is relatively free flowing (not subject to agglomeration), resistant to static charge, and requires analysis of particles larger than 38 microns.
The quiet operation, simple set-up and test processing, economical cost, and freedom from maintenance are material additional factors in a selection criteria.
