...to proceed to a granulometric sifting


Explanation:
...to proceed to a granulometric sifting...

Should be granuloMETRIC, not granule as such - emphasis on measures of granules which are to be passed through a sieve in order to determine the content of the various elements.

granulometric cut / screening


Explanation:
I've just finished an identical translation; yes:

granulometric screening is what I used, synonymous to 'sifting'

And 'coupe' is granulometric cut.

I checked these all out for my own job (feldspar in a granite bed)
