Anton Paar Porous Material and Powder Testing Instrumentation Added to Particle Technology Labs Manufacturer Offerings

Particle Technology Labs is pleased to announce our recent collaboration with Anton Paar, manufacturer of analytical instrumentation for particle characterization. With this collaboration, PTL will offer testing services with our newly-equipped suite of Anton Paar porous material and powder testing instrumentation.  This collaboration will also include contract testing for Anton Paar  for the midwest and eastern portion of the United States.

William Kopesky, Director of Analytical Services at PTL states, “One of our primary goals is to offer our clients diversity in instrument manufacturers in order to meet their testing needs. Adding Anton Paar to our manufacturer offerings continues to work toward this goal. With almost 30 years of experience in the independent particle characterization testing field, we can readily incorporate Anton Paar’s instrumentation into our laboratory. At the same time, we have allocated resources to successfully manage the increased contract client testing base we will now serve. We will also be able to offer ISO and cGMP compliant results to those clients which require it. We are excited to work with Anton Paar and appreciate the trust they have shown through this collaboration.”

Georg Cortolezis-Supp, CEO at Anton Paar QuantaTec, underlined the significance of the partnership: “PTL’s dedication to independent, accurate, and bias-free particle analysis testing makes them a natural fit for us as a partner,” he said. “With this collaboration, Anton Paar can continue to take forward what it does best: develop, manufacture and support the best particle and porous materials characterization instrumentation.”

The partnership’s testing services are now fully operational, with cGMP compliance for applicable instrumentation following later this year. Capabilities offered by Anton Paar’s instrumentation suite at PTL will include physisorptionchemisorptionvapor sorption, solid density analysis, and pore size analysis.

Adsorption & Porosimetry

The surface area and porosity of a material can critically affect its behavior in many applications, and therefore should not be underestimated. Surface area depends upon various factors such as particle size, the presence of cracks or crevasses, surface roughness, and accessible pores. The characteristics of the pores, such as size, volume, and shape can also greatly affect the performance of the material.

Powder Flowability

The flowability characteristic of a powder is directly related to both the physical properties of the material itself as well as the specific processing conditions in the handling system. Consequently, for such a complex system, a “single number” used to describe the flow of a powder may not be realistic or may not provide sufficient information. Playing a role in how powders flow are physical properties such as particle size,...
