University of Leeds, LEEDS, LS2 9JT, West Yorkshire, United Kingdom

Emphasis throughout is on the industrial application of basic principles of particle size analysis and bulk powder characterisation. Extensive interactive notes will be provided to participants and worked examples, case studies and theory will be introduced wherever relevant.

The use of commercial particle size analysis instruments will be presented and the significance of each method discussed from a practical point of view. As well as offering the opportunity to discuss specific problems during the course, the final afternoon is offered as a particle characterisation clinic with the Course Director or a visit to the characterisation facilities of ParticlesCIC at the University of Leeds to see in action many of the particle characterisation methods presented during the course.

Who Should Attend

This course is relevant to employees using, producing or handling powders and particles in industry, and who need to know how to define, measure and use particle properties for quality assurance, improvement of processes and develop new product formulations and processes. It is of particular interest for those involved in industries such as pharmaceutical, pigments, detergents, cosmetics, nuclear, plastics, food and general chemicals industries.

On completion of the course you will have an understanding of:
• The relevance of particle size analysis and bulk powder measurement for characterising powder properties
• How to define, and measure particle size distribution and to evaluate results from particle size analysis
• How to choose between the many different instrumental methods for particle size analysis
• How to use simple overall bulk properties to classify different powders
