Contaminants and foreign particles can be a problem in many industries including pharmaceutical and automotive. They can come from various sources including corroded or damaged parts of equipment, cross contamination in the process or from biological origin. The effect of such contamination can range from cosmetic to dangerous depending on the situation therefore isolation, counting and characterization is vital.

Malvern’s easy-to-use particle size, particle shape and chemical identification systems aid identification and characterization of contaminants and foreign particles.

These systems are supported by Malvern’s industry and applications knowledge and are used to help:

  • Isolate the particle contamination
  • Count the number of particles present in a sample
  • Characterize and identify the particles
  • Provide increased process and product knowledge and understanding
