Particle characterization white paper avialable from Malvern Instruments

June 11, 2012

Malvern Instruments, UK, has published a new white paper offering an introduction to particle characterization.  

From a starting point of ‘what is a particle?’, Malvern Instruments’ new ‘A basic guide to particle characterization’ white paper takes the reader through descriptions of a range of particle properties and then goes on to introduce a variety of different particle characterization techniques.

Designed both as a primer for those new to particle characterization and as a refresher for the more experienced, ‘A basic guide to particle characterization’ is freely downloadable at www.malvern.com/particle-characterization-basics

The white paper covers introductory basics, theory and instrumentation as well as providing a reference guide to help the reader decide what might be most appropriate technique for their particle characterization needs.

Examining what a particle is, the guide narrows the definition to include solid particles, liquid droplets or gas bubbles with physical dimensions ranging from sub-nanometre to several millimetres in size. It also delves into why many industries routinely use particle characterization techniques within their businesses, exploring applications such as improved control of product quality and gaining a better understanding of products, ingredients and processes.
