By far the most important physical property of particulate samples is particle size. Measurement of particle size distributions is routinely carried out across a wide range of industries and is often a critical parameter in the manufacture of many products.
Measuring particle size distributions and understanding how they affect your products and processes can be critical to the success of many manufacturing businesses. Malvern Instruments offers leading instrumentation for all types of particle size analysis and characterization from sub-nanometer to millimeters in particle size.
Use the table below to help choose the right technology and particle size instrument for your needs:
Taylor Dispersion Analysis
0.2nm to >20nm
Dynamic Light Scattering
<1nm to >1µm
Nanoparticle Tracking Analysis
<30nm to >1µm
Resonant Mass Measurement**
50nm to 5µm
<100nm to >2mm
Spatial Filter Velocimetry
<50µm to 6mm
<1µm to >3mm
*all particle size ranges are sample dependent
**particle size ranges are sample and sensor dependent.

The need to characterize different properties of nanomaterials continues to grow rapidly. Since the commercialization of the technique in 2004, Nanoparticle tracking Analysis (NTA) has become increasingly prevalent in a wide variety of different rese...
Spraytec can measure how the particle size delivered by a dry powder inhaler (DPI) changes as a function of applied air flow rate, providing a deagglomeration profile which can be used to compare the performance of different formulations in a device ...
Analyzing powders as a dry dispersion is in many ways simpler and faster than wet dispersion. In order to characterize a wide variety of materials accurately, it is important to control the aerodynamic dispersion. From limited quantities of Active Ph...
In the fourth webinar in the particle sizing masterclass we will look at how to set specifications for particle size measurements. The most important thing when setting a specification is to relate it back to why you need to measure particle size. Fo...
Spices are usually supplied in powder form. Why is this so? Why would we want to comminute (size reduce) a spice? Why isn't curry powder made of curry? These and other questions will be explored in this presentation.
