Analysing the size of particles is work for specialists. The research laboratory of Delft Solids Solutions has expertise in investigating problems with solid materials. Not only researching but especially solving complicated physicochemical problems is one of the core objectives.

Every material has unique properties. These can be influenced, for example, by the size of particles or the chemical stability. Measuring the size of such particles is of considerable importance at every stage of production as well as processing. We have various techniques at our disposal to carry out research and particle size analysis. For example:

  • laser diffraction,
  • Photon Correlation Spectroscopy,
  • image analysis,
  • laser Doppler velocimetry
  • electron microscopy

Separation of powders

Products consist of individual features or components. A tool to predict characteristics of products is a segregation analysis. In order to keep the quality of products optimal, all characteristics must be able to be mixed well and remain in that state. Differences in size, density and shape play a major role.

In our research laboratory we perform powder segregation studies. We do this for example through the methods sifting- and fluidisation segregation. This analysis provides predictive information about the sensitivity of a powder mixture to segregation and how to control it. Delft Solids Solutions’ research laboratory has more than 40 years of experience. Do you have any questions, are you looking for thorough research, are you looking for a sparring partner?
