    Aerosol and particle technology for process control industry

    In order to ensure that an industrial process can be controlled or even improved and optimized continually an analysis of the current situation in real time is necessary. Process data like temperature, pressure but also particle concentration and size distribution of a material flow can supply valuable information and be used for the regulation or the improvement of a process.

  • Independent particle characterization services for medical devices industries

    Advances in biomedical implant and device technology continue to present new challenges in the area of physical testing. Particle Size Distribution, Surface Area and Porosity measurement data are invaluable to the biomedical researcher. PTL partners with each client to design projects that provide this needed information while controlling the costs of research. Applications have included particle size analysis of wear particles in fluid submitted from implant fatigue studies and pore size analysis of tricalcium phosphate granules compressed into bone grafting media. Evaluation by photomicroscopy and mercury porosimetry of artifical ligament materials have provided insight to researchers on their products.

  • Independent particle characterization services for dietary supplements

    Concurrent with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s final rule establishing regulations to require current good manufacturing practices (cGMPs) for dietary supplements, PTL can offer cGMP services to all supplement manufacturers. PTL has sustained its FDA registration since 1994, which involves rigorous inspections by FDA every 2 years or sooner. According to the final rule, proper controls must be in place for dietary supplements to be produced in a consistent manner for identity, purity, strength, and composition. PTL’s particle characterization tests can be conducted following FDA regulations. Valuable testing such as particle size and shape, image analysis, B.E.T. surface area, pore volume and pore size can be analyzed under cGMP compliance. These analyses can give insight into absorption, strength, and composition of the material being processed.

  • Independent particle characterization services for beauty / cosmetics industries

    PTL’s analytical staff has years of experience designing test methods and performing analysis for cosmetic, skin care, fragrance and personal cosmetics_particle_testinghygiene samples. Whether your company needs a third party verification, routine QC confirmation, stability studies or one time testing, PTL will create a project to meet your needs. Applications include the size and shape of cosmetic enhancers (glitter particles for example) in a final product, droplet size from spray nozzles/atomizers and particle size of emulsion particles comprising creams/lotions. In addition, the particle size of powdered cosmetics is of tremendous importance in how they flow, cover and can directly affect their appearance as well as the user’s skin.

  • Independent particle characterization services for abrasives industries

    Serving the abrasive industry over the last 2 decades, the most common testing performed for this field is particle size and shape analysis. The world of abrasives can encompass a host of varying materials from diamond dust, silicon and tungsten carbide, fused silica and quartz, to polished glass and medical abrasives. particle_size_of_abrasives With sizing instrumentation capable of measuring from a few nanometers up to 2000 microns and classic techniques such as sieving for even larger sizes, PTL has the expertise and equipment capable to measure any abrasive type and size. Particle size distribution analyses on abrasives provide valuable insight to engineers in several areas. For example, attrition products from classified spent abrasives can often be seen as a shift to smaller particle sizes.
