Determination of Granularity of Semolina and Farina: Sieving Method

VIEW METHOD

Objective
Granularity of a ground material, such as semolina or farina, is the particle distribution of the material, which can be determined by a system of sieving. Data are reported as the weight of material remaining on a specified sieve or sieves after sieving for a standard time, expressed as a percentage of the original weight of the sample. For certain purposes, the weight of material passing through a specified sieve or sieves may also be used, expressed in the same way.
