Improved Particle-Size Analysis Boosts Quality

By Joy LePree |

Particle-size analysis methods are changing for the better, reducing rework and improving yield Particle-size analysis plays an important role in many chemical processes that involve dry powders and granules, fibers, suspensions, emulsions, gels, sprays, inhalants and the like. Processors rely heavily upon particle-size analysis to improve the quality of the product, reduce rework and increase yield. As such, providers of both laboratory and in-situ particle-size analyzers are incorporating modern conveniences, such as automation and intelligence, into existing technologies, as well as introducing systems with advanced analysis techniques, to help processors achieve their goals.   Needs and challenges When it comes to particle-size analysis, whether the system is laboratory scale or in situ, the essential need is to provide reliable measurement data. “This means accurate, reproducible (repeatability of measurement) and comparable results, both system-to-system results and site-to-site comparability, in the shortest measuring time,” says Torsten Huebner, sales manager, Europe, and instrument manager, laser diffraction, with Sympatec GmbH (Clausthal-Zellerfeld, Germany; www.sympatec.com). “Good measurement results…
