Particle Size Characterization 2022


About


Why the course Particle Size Characterization?

Particle characterization concerns a wide range of materials and products: ranging from large molecules (proteins and polymers), micelles, micro-emulsions, viruses, droplets, latexes, fine dust particles, pigments, clay and minerals up to sand and gravel.

Powders and granular material are of key importance in industry. Approximately 80% of the industrial processes deals with such solid matter. In the chemical industry alone, half of the final products and 75% of the semi-finished products is in powder or granular form.
Delft Solids Solutions offers two courses devoted to particle characterization:

Program


Program

The central theme addressed in this course is how to define and characterize the size and shape of a particle or a set of particles.
Topics that are being discussed are:

  • Introduction solid matter and particles
  • Definitions particle size and shape
  • Sampling
  • Sample preparation
  • Sieving
  • Sedimentation
  • Electrical Sensing Zone (Coulter principle)
  • Forward light scattering (Laser Diffraction)
  • Dynamic light scattering
  • Microscopy and image analysis
  • Comparison of techniques
  • Quality, reference materials and standards

Methodology
The course is organized by and at the premises of Delft Solids Solutions, where also a fully equipped laboratory is available. In this laboratory the most important techniques in the area of particle size and shape characterization including sampling and sample pre-treatment equipment is available.

Practical demonstrations of the various types of equipment are used to alternate with the various lectures. Emphasis lies on the practical use and application of the techniques and how to translate results to the practical situations.


Duration
The course consists of two successive days of 8 hours each.

Objectives
