The Grain Size Distribution of Blasted Rock | SpringerLink

 · The determination of the grain size distribution of blasted rock exceeds the capability of an analytical sieving machine which only gives reliable results within a range of 63 μm to 125 mm. Other sophisticated methods are often not available for particle size measurement in coarse-grained applications in medium scale mining. Therefore, an alternative low cost method to investigate the grain ...
