Results given: You provide:
  • Grading of material
    (% of each particle size)
  • Percentages of clay and silt fractions*

[ * if pipette analysis performed]

  • Specify if pipette analysis is required to individually determine clay and silt content
  • If pipette analysis is specified, what quantity of fine material (passing 63m sieve, clay and silt) needs to be present to require the pipette analysis to be performed (eg. only if >10% fines present)
Typical use(s): Material required:
  • Basic classification of material according to its particle size.
Depends on particle size. For not more than 10% of the following sizes, use the corresponding sample mass
63mm 50 kg
50mm 35 kg
37.5mm 15 kg
28mm 6 kg
20mm 2 kg
14mm 1 kg
10mm 500 g
6.3mm 200 g
3.35mm 150 g
< 2mm 100 g
