Particle size analysis

It is a complex job to determine physical and chemical properties of materials. Particle size analysis makes the task easy. It is particle sizing that particles dispersed in solid or fluid can be determined of their chemical or other properties as desired. Particle size analysis is also termed as particle size distribution. The accurate and precise characterization of particle and material properties can be done only with the right particle sizing system.

The concept of particle sizing finds application in many industries ranging from agriculture, petroleum, atomic energy, biotechnology, calibration labs, test houses, cement, ceramics, laboratory, chemicals, defense, education, environmental monitoring, meteorology, fertilizers, food products, foundries, glass, leather, minerals, mining, oil & gas, paint, pesticides, pharmacy, rubber, soil analysis, textiles, and many more. For example Spraytec – Spray Particle Size Analyzer is one such particle sizing system that gives high speed measurements of high concentration droplets in sprays, aerosols and inhalers in the size range of 0.5 to 850 microns. Similarly there are many other such examples related to particle size analysis.

The measurement techniques related particle sizing difference from application to application. Few of the most commonly used techniques include optical counting methods, sieve analysis, electro resistance counting methods, acoustic spectroscopy, laser diffraction methods, etc. Measured by the μm, particle size analysis in recent times is one of the widely used concepts, resulting in the great demand of particle sizing system.
