General Description

The Change Sieve Series model is required when a different size distribution (or sieve series) is to be used. This is particularly important when adding streams with different sieve series, as only streams with the same sieve series can be added. Therefore, before the streams can be mixed properly, the change sieve series model must be put in place.

To see more information on size distributions, please see Size Distribution (PSD).

The diagram shows two streams using different sieve series mixing. A Change Sieve Series model is used to change the Coarse Sieve series to Fine Sieve Series before the mixing can correctly occur.

Model Theory

To convert from sieve series A to sieve series B:

  • For size interval in sieve series A the Sieve Changing model converts the % passing data to the Rosin-Rammler variable;
  • The model then performs an interpolation to obtain the required Rosin-Rammler variable at the required size interval in sieve series B;
  • This is then converted to % passing for sieve series B.
