Sand particle characterization

In this example, Clemex Vision PE is introduced to perform the particle sizing on the submitted sand sample.

Figure 1. The microstructure of scattered sand is viewed at 50X magnification with transmitted light.

Figure 2. Particles isolated by an Object Transfer on Roughness instruction. Touching Particles are left in blue.


Demonstrate the ability of the Clemex Vision image analysis system to obtain a grain size (length) distribution of sand particles. The methods and operations used are discussed in the report linked at the bottom of this page (click the Download PDF link below).


Length measurements are performed on the sand particles. Automated statistics and graph are generated and cumulated during the analysis of the sample. Final results can be printed directly from Clemex Vision. Raw data can be exported in Excel format.
