Determination of Net Weight

Container - Wire mesh basket large enough to hold contents of one package and with openings small enough to retain all pieces. Expanded metal test-tube basket or equivalent, fully lined with standard 16 mesh per linear inch (2.54 cm) insect screen is satisfactory.
Balance - Sensitive to 0.25 g or 0.01 oz.
 Transfer product to circular No. 8 sieve, 20 cm (8”) diameter for packages #0.9 kg (2 lb) and 30 cm (12”) for packages >0.9 kg (2 lb).
Sieves - U.S. No. 8, 20 cm (8”) and 30 cm (12”).
Place contents of individual package in wire mesh basket and immerse in 15 L (4-gal.) container of fresh water at 26 ± 3ºC (80 ± 5ºF) so that top of basket extends above water level. Introduce water of same temperature at bottom of container at flow rate of 4-11 L (1-3 gal.)/min. As soon as product thaws, as determined by loss of rigidity, transfer all material to 30 cm (12”) (for packages 450 g [1 lb.]), or 20 cm (8”) (for packages ≤450 g [1 lb.]) No. 8 sieve, distributing evenly. Without shifting material on sieve, incline sieve to ca 30º from horizontal to facilitate drainage. Two minutes from time placed on sieved, transfer product to previously weighed pan, and weigh. Weight so found minus weight of pan is drained weight of product.
