Particle Size Distribution Test - Powders

Method Description

Particle Size Distribution analysis of powders using analytical sieves involves passing a sample through a set of stacked sieves with progressively finer mesh sizes. The retained material on each sieve is weighed, and the cumulative distribution is determined. This classical method provides valuable information on the size range of particles within a powder sample. Widely used in pharmaceuticals, food, and material science, it aids in optimizing processes and ensuring product consistency. Analytical sieving is a cost-effective technique for characterizing particle size distributions, guiding quality control efforts in various industries.
