Given the wide range of technologies available today for powder and particle characterization, selecting the best option for an application is not easy. Join particle characterization and technology experts Remi Trottier and Karl Jacob to gain a solid understanding of the basics of particle and bulk solids characterization necessary to properly select instruments and validate data and a look at the latest commercially available technologies.
Applications, problem-solving and new technology
In two days, you’ll gain characterization and data interpretation skills you can use to better control particulates, particulate formulation, suspensions and dispersions. You’ll examine the basic concepts underlying particle and bulk solids characterization – from nanoscale to millimeters. You’ll discuss the measurement of bulk powder properties including specific surface area density/porosity/compressibility and powder flow fundamentals and testing. Plus, you’ll learn a general approach to solving particulate problems in your own plant. You’ll leave with knowledge of proper instrument selection, data validation and interpretation and other key concepts that will help you better understand and select proper technology.
