According to ASTM Standard C430, the hydraulic cement fineness tests are completed by using a sieve with a mesh size of No. 325 (45µm). Sieves that have a electroformed forced nickel sieve sheet are also permitted to be used, according to ASTM C430.
It is important to note that the both the nozzle and the sieve should not have any corrosion caused by water since this would impact the fineness tests. The sieve frame used in the cement fineness tests should be made of a circular metal and the mesh should be made of stainless steel that is woven-wire.
