Digital workshop: Learn everything about powder and particle characterization

Are you new to the field of powder characterization? Or have you been involved for some time and would like to learn more about this fascinating topic? In any case, this workshop provides you with answers to all of your questions related to the characterization of powders and particles.

The workshop will include seminars covering both theoretical and practical aspects of powder characterization as well as practical (live demo) and Q&A parts. It will focus on powder rheology as well as particle sizing by dynamic light scattering and laser diffraction. Insights into zeta potential measurements of suspensions and solid surfaces will also be given.

Our goal is that by the time you leave the workshop, you will be able to:
• Understand the basic theory associated with powder rheology, particle sizing, and zeta potential determination
• Know when it makes sense to use a particular method
• Know how to solve your application and why you want to perform these tests
• Know how the devices are handled and how to run a measurement

The workshop will be held online and will combine theory, real-life applications, live measurements, and Q&A.

Workshop program:
09:30 - 10:00 Introduction and overview: Find out the right measurement you want to run on your sample - from specific surface to powder rheology!
10:00 - 11:00 Powder rheology - part 1: How powders behave when compacted / consolidated
11:00 - 12:00 Laser Diffraction: How to measure particle size in dry and liquid state
Lunch break
13:00 - 14:00 Powder rheology - part 2: How to analyze fluidized and sub-fluidized powders
14:00 - 15:00 Dynamic light scattering: How to measure particle size with DLS
15:00 - 16:00 Zeta potential: How to determine the zeta potential of small particles and macroscopic surfaces
