Description ECHANT has been designed to improve sampling practice. It allows the computation of the sampling fundamental error of particulate materials following the Pierre Gy theory. Sampling aims at representing a batch of material through a small fraction of it. However, many factors have to be considered to ensure that the sample is in fact representative of the whole batch such as: systematic bias, "nugget effects", size of the components sampled, type of sampling. It aids in establishing a Sampling Plan or Flowsheet which, adapted to the specific characteristics of the batch and the units to be sampled, can help overcome many of the problems of distribution heterogeneity. It will also quantify the Fundamental Sampling Error (FSE).
