Considerations for Stable, Consistent Results Using Laser Diffraction

Reliable and stable results with laser diffraction are achieved by understanding trends through repeat testing. At PTL, several measurements are typically done in each liquid dispersion analysis with a delay between each measurement to observe if any trending

Laser Diffraction: Liquid vs. Dry Applications for Dry Materials

Laser diffraction is an excellent technique for determining particle size as it allows the user to measure particle size on both a liquid and dry basis. When working with dry materials choosing the most appropriate way to disperse
