Particle size and size distribution are important physical characteristics for the quality of products and highly influence the behavior during processing and handling of powders, like flowability, transport and storage. Laboratory particle sizing analysis by characterization of size distribution and shape is a strong tool in R&D and Quality Control environment.
Closely related to particle sizing analysis is the droplet size distribution of sprays, nebulizers and other aerosols. Droplet size analysis is mainly used to optimize nozzle design, enhance inkjet printing technology, restrict excessive use of pesticides and increase medicine effectiveness.
Obviously, sieving is the best-known classical approach to fractionate materials and determine particle size distributions. Currently, various modern techniques such as Laser Diffraction (light scattering or laser scattering), Photon Correlation Spectroscopy (PCS), Electrical Sensing Zone, Image Analysis, Laser Doppler Velocimetry and Microscopy (electron microscopy and optical microscopy) are available for sizing analysis. These techniques are offered in our laboratory, besides more conventional particle sizing methods such as Andreasen (Sedimentation) and Sieve Analysis.
Our laboratory uses equipment from the following manufacturers for particle size analysis: Malvern, Beckman Coulter, and Micromeritics.

Delft Solids Solutions is a contract research organisation founded in 2002. Our core activities are focused on a better understanding of processes in which powders and solids are used. A more detailed description of materials properties on the micro-level leads to an improved understanding of the behaviour and control of solids on the macro-level. To this end, we employ a variety of experimental set-ups in our laboratory and test areas.
A broad range of methodologies and techniques including method development and consulting is available. Correlating more fundamental parameters such as particle size, porosity, and surface area with bulk solids behavior – flowability, attrition, shear, dustiness of powders – enables to establish firm links with theory and practice. Areas we are active in include, but are not limited to: pharmaceutical materials, medical devices, building materials, catalysts, filler materials, pigments, food and food additives, and handling of bulk solids in general. Delft Solids Solutions can help you to enhance the quality of your process and product by an improved understanding. Our most recent expansion of portfolio includes the assessment of nano-properties of products, in line with upcoming regulations and ordinances. Are you nano-proof?
