The third in Micromeritics'
ongoing series of live webinars highlighting applications, theory, and instrumentation
showcases the use of a dynamic image analysis technique to characterize irregularly
shaped particles. This informative webinar will be broadcast at both 9:00 AM
and 11:00 AM EST on Friday, April 23rd.
For many years, particle size analyzers have produced results with the assumption
that all measured particles are spherical. However, using a measurement that
assumes all particles are spheres may not be adequate for a variety of applications
where particle shapes are irregular. In many applications, the shape of raw
material particles can affect both performance and quality of the end product.
Automated image analysis provides a more accurate measurement of these particles.
The dynamic image technique looks at these particles in motion, providing additional
critical information. Besides particle size, numerous shape parameters are obtained.
As the images are taken, statistical data for all measurement parameters are
calculated and recorded. At the same time, thumbnail images of each particle
are saved for post-analysis viewing and screening.
This presentation will cover two classes of irregular particles, crystals and
fibers, and the additional important information that dynamic image analysis
can provide. Examples of real-world industrial applications will also be discussed.
