Portuguese term or phrase:Teor de Pó (via seca); (via umida)
These terms appear in the physical analyses section of a description of a chemical product. One item is "Teor de Pó (via seca)", expressed as a % m/m (que passa na paneira de malha 200#). Is this the same as Particle Content or is "Pó" something different here? And does "via seca" mean that the chemical product being analyzed is dry when tested? Or is there some sort of medium involved?
The next item is "Granulometria (via umida)", expressed as % retida m/m when passed through a screen of varying mesh sizes. Is "via umida" here simply "wet" or a "wet medium"?
