Analyze your own photographs on a desktop computer with the particle sizing software that started it all! Make decisions based on fact instead of theory. Optimize blast performance using photographs. WipFrag software puts particle sizing at your fingertips!

Originally developed during the 1980’s and 90’s at the University of Waterloo, WipFrag pioneered image-based particle size analysis software. Like other long standing, industry-standard software packages, the WipFrag of today bears little resemblance to its primitive ancestor.

WipWare technology empowers you with the tools you need to collect historical data, establish a statistical baseline and track subtle changes throughout the optimization process so you can make decisions based on fact, instead of theory. The included BlastCast™ blast forecast module helps predict fragmentation when used in conjunction with WipFrag particle size data.

As proven in the mining, forestry and aggregate industries, WipFrag particle analysis helps cut energy consumption, improves efficiency and minimizes equipment maintenance costs.

Blast models, formulas, expected results; we all know that this approach to predicting blast results is useless without the tool to quantify what really matters: fragmentation.

How It Works

A software-key version of WipFrag that can be installed on a single computer is available for purchase and download directly from the WipWare website using a credit card or PayPal account. Also available is a hardware key version that can be installed on multiple computers but requires a USB license key to be inserted to run. See more information on WipFrag licensing here.
