The influence of particle size and shape on flow properties

The size and shape of the particles within a powder are important factors in influencing behaviour, and many well-established techniques exist for measuring these properties. However, over a range of different processes, the relationship between these two parameters and flow properties is less well-understood, and due to the varying demands ... read more

Using powder characterisation methods to assess blending behaviour

Blending a mixture of powders to homogeneity is a critical step in many manufacturing processes. Making uniform tablets, for example, relies on the homogeneous dispersion of active ingredients, often in small quantities, with excipients such as binders and disintegrants to form a suitable feed blend for the press. Similarly, in industries as diverse ... read more
