Malvern Master Sizer S
Particle Size Distribution is measured of a powder or particles after dispersion in an non-solvent. The dispersion is held in continuous motion using both ultrasonic and magnetic stirring. A laser beam is sent through the solution and diffraction occurs. From Bragg’s Law and mathematical modeling (MIE theory) particle diameter can be obtained within the range of 0,05 µm – 900 µm.
PSA curves allow determination of the particle size distribution and average particle size diameter.
- PSA analysis of powders, inks, dust, residues from processing.
- Particle size distribution for particles blocking nozzles, filters.
- Evaluation of the micronized TiO2 particles in cosmetics and paints.
- Evaluation of the particle size distribution of refractory particles as additives in plastics and composites.
