Environmental Analysis

Instruments provided by Bettersize offer particle size analysis and sand content analysis of soil and sediment samples. Bettersizer series particle size analyzers have been widely used in the lab for particle size analysis in the soil and sediment science industry.


Determination of particle size distribution is a widely accepted method to analyze soil texture, and it is also commonly used to classify soil texture for agricultural technology. It has become a research focus in relevant fields for estimating other hydraulic properties of soil according to its particle size distribution. Particle size analyzers have become a main research instrument in this field due to their ability to determine particle size distribution.


In addition, knowledge of the particle size distribution and the zeta potential of the particles can help to predict the movement of fine silt and clay particles and the creation of sand banks where rivers meet the sea.


Bettersizer series particle size analyzer can help you to rapidly obtain the particle size and particle shape data of soil, and carry out the effective evaluation of soil properties in a variety of applications.


This measuring technique can be used to:
Rapidly determine the content of clay, silt and sand particles, and classify soil texture
Evaluate interactions among particles
Assess particle accumulation, porosity and permeability
Evaluate granular structure
