Talisman Rotary Sieve is a rotary mouli type sieve for sieving large batches of glaze or slip. It has a tapered, plastic body which fits firmly on any round container. The handle extension allows it to rest on extra large containers.
Either wet or dry materials can be sieved quickly. For example, dry ash can be put through a screen as fine as 100 mesh. The brush-cluster is rotated against the screen by turning the handle, and the pressure required is regulated simply by pressing on the handle as it is turned. The handle runs in a graphite-impregnated nylon bearing well clear of the abrasive materials being used.
Brushes are held in a moulded plastic centre-piece sufficiently tight to ensure that they maintain contact with the screen even if this distorts with use. Brushes have nylon bristles set in a plastic back; they won't absorb color and are easily washed. They are long-lasting, yet easily replaced.
After use, the screen can be removed and the brush-cluster pushed through the bottom of the sieve for easy washing.
The handle is easily removed for transport, or if several brush-heads are needed for different purposes - eg, for wet or dry uses. When dismantled, the sieve can be sent by parcel post. It comes with clear instructions for assembling.
Push-in screens with moulded rubber rims are interchangeable. Stainless steel screens are sold separately and available in the following meshes: 40, 60, 80, 100, 120, 150, and 200 (TAL40, TAL60, TAL80, TAL100, TAL120, TAL150, & TAL200).
