Independent particle characterization services for abrasives industries
Particle shape analysis is also available, which is a powerful technique, providing additional information in tandem with a particle size distribution. Information on a change in shape can provide an indication of a loss in abrasive efficiency as an abrasive is recycled. The additional parameters provided by image analysis can also provide further insight into important properties which can impact effectiveness, flowability, processing differences and material handling issues. Results are available on numerous shape and size parameters; such as Aspect Ratio, Sphericity/Roundness, Solidity, Convexity, and Circular Area Diameter….along with numerous others.
