There is a broad range of commercially available particle characterization techniques that can be used to measure particulate samples. Each has its strengths and limitations and there is no universally applicable technique for all samples and all situations.
By far the most important physical property of particulate samples is particle size. Measurement of particle size distributions is routinely carried out across a wide range of industries and is often a critical parameter in the manufacture of many products.
Measuring particle size distributions and understanding how they affect your products and processes can be critical to the success of many manufacturing businesses. Malvern Instruments offers leading instrumentation for all types of particle size analysis and characterization from sub-nanometer to millimeters in particle size.
This guide provides a basic grounding in the main particle characterization techniques currently in use within industry and academia. It assumes no prior knowledge of particle characterization theory or instrumentation and is ideal for those new to particle characterization, or those wishing to reinforce their knowledge in the field. The guide covers introductory basics, particle sizing theory and particle characterization instrumentation, as well as a quick reference guide to help you decide which techniques might be most appropriate for your particle characterization needs.
