Using single-particle sizing to find your process endpoint

Your powder's properties -- such as porosity, hardness, strength, taste, color, appearance, and stability -- depend on the material's particle size distribution. As a result, you spend a lot of your processing dollars on reducing or enlarging your powder's particle size. But how do you effectively determine your manufacturing process's endpoint? Are you wasting money reducing or enlarging your powder beyond the final product spec? This article explains how single-particle optical sensing obtains particle sizing information that can help you accurately determine your process endpoint.

As bulk materials processing rapidly becomes a more practical art, the question you face now is "How can I do it cheaper?" Perhaps you've already started by searching for less expensive mills, mixers, and other process equipment. But instead of replacing your current equipment, it can be more effective to re-establish your process endpoint.
