Particle size analysis

Particle size analysis by Delft Solids Solutions tells you what you need to know

Particle size analysis is one of the main specialties of Delft Solids Solutions. Various material characteristics can be affected by the size of the particles within them, ranging from chemical stability to flowability. Particle size measurement may therefore be of vital importance at every stage of production and handling. Delft Solids Solutions can apply a wide range of state-of-the-art particle sizing techniques to provide you with the information you need about your finished products, raw materials or intermediates. Obviously, when it comes to particle sizing analysis and characterisation, laser diffraction is commonly used.

However, we also determine particle size distribution and shape using light-scattering techniques, do particle characterization by photon correlation spectroscopy, image analysis and much more. Whatever your specific question or material is, Delft Solids Solutions has the particle size analysis methods to give you the answers you are looking for.

Particle size measurement and particle size distribution: powerful tools for material characterization

Particle size measurement, particle size distribution and other particle size analysis methods are often used to characterize materials. Many industrial products and materials consist of powders. Powder particle size, particle size distribution and particle shape are important physical characteristics that greatly affect the behaviour of these powders during processing and handling, including transport and storage. Particle size analyzers such as Delft Solids Solutions can therefore provide you with valuable information about your products or their constituents, no matter what type of industry you are active in.

Our specialized laboratory employs a wide range of modern techniques for particle size measurement, particle size distribution and other types of particle characterization, including laser diffraction and scanning electron microscopy, for instance. However, Delft Solids Solutions can also perform particle size analysis using conventional particle sizing techniques such as sedimentation and sieve analysis.
