AN 138 PARTICLE SIZE DISTRIBUTION ANALYSIS OF POROUS POWDERS
Particle Size Distribution Analysis of Porous Powders Using the Saturn DigiSizer 5200
Porous powders find application in many industries these days. These range from catalysts to pharmaceuticals; from environmental cleanup to liquid chromatography. Not only is it important to know the pore size distribution of these powders, but it is also crucial to have a reliable particle size distribution analysis of these materials. In general, these analyses can be performed in much the same way as analyses of nonporous particles. When using laser-scattering particle size analysis, however, a few additional precautions are necessary.
