Soil Texture Analyser

PARIO

Back

Particle size distribution is an important parameter for the characterisation of soil. In contrast to conventional methods, in which the sieving and depositing of the soil samples is carried out by hand, Pario uses a high-resolution pressure measuring method to identify the particle size automatically. This enables error-free measurement and requires less time and effort. The retrieval, visualisation, analysis and export of the data are managed via software that is intuitive to use.
