Are you pondering which laser diffraction particle size analyzer to use for your scientific research?
Many people consider the number of Google Scholar publication references as an indicator of acceptance of a particular scientific instrument’s technique, performance, and value. The higher the number of publications, the more credibility people tend to offer towards the choice of that instrument for their important research needs.
After doing a search on Google Scholar for references to the Mastersizer 3000 as well as the Mastersizer 2000, and then comparing versus several other models of laser diffraction …

On October 2, 2018, we held a seminar entitled “Overcoming Characterization Challenges in Drug Formulation” in the Boston area.  It was a great opportunity to meet with many pharmaceutical scientists in the area and learn about their challenges and concerns.  The presentations addressed a number of topics of interest, from stability of formulations, trace phase and impurity detection, deformulation, root cause analysis, to optimizing small molecule candidate screening.  There were great questions from the audience, so we rounded up several questions and answers here to share.
How does the Mastersizer 3000 see …

Here at Malvern Panalytical, we seem to enjoy testing the rheological properties of drinks, particularly those of the alcoholic variety! John Duffy and Steve Carrington looked into the differences between traditional ales and they explored the properties of Guinness. Any excuse to go down the pub…!
Therefore, it was probably about time to explore the healthier option on the drinks menu, and an ideal hangover cure – smoothies. Additionally, this was a perfect opportunity to demonstrate our latest dispersion geometry using John’s loyal drinking partner – the Kinexus rheometer!
We decided to run …

What is IIoT?
We now live in a world where there is an increasing reliance on the internet, not only for streaming movies or sending e-mails but for controlling a multitude of devices from domestic appliances to smart cars. The internet of things has also been embraced by the manufacturing industry, a paradigm known as the IIoT (Industrial Internet of Things) – when separate manufacturing units begin to function as one – and where the cloud is becoming the preferred way to store and share data.
Data has now become the lifeblood …

It was my great pleasure to present as part of the Worcestershire Innovation Network at their WINN Wednesday event on the 22nd of November, showcasing the best in innovation across Worcestershire.
This included a local company which makes artificial kneecaps and hips, an insight into the building of genomics studies of patients with rare diseases and cancers, an update on the appeal to get a state-of-the-art surgical robot for removal of prostate tumors (reducing discomfort, scarring and hospital stay post-operation). Jess Antley, head of WINN, also gave an update on a new shared space/collaboration …

The heavy cost of mining and minerals manufacturing
The importance of minerals as a production resource applies to many facets of our daily lives. For instance, the quality of concrete determines the smoothness of a road surface and the sturdiness of a building. However, with the ever-growing demands for quality cement, many have spurred manufacturing processes leading to hefty costs. Such costs incurred comes from wastage when having to reproduce cement because it does not meet the quality standard.
Based on a mechanical and civil engineering study, 6-15% of construction costs …

Just when I thought I’d seen everything that could contaminate the background, a user sent me this picture! The Musca Domestica (common housefly) was attracted by certain aromatics used in testing and seems to have entered the measurement cell through an empty Hydro EV over a weekend. Unfortunately, it became wedged within the measurement cell and did not survive the experience.

The most important message from the Mastersizer training courses I give is to make sure you have a good background before you start. Laser diffraction is a background subtracted technique: …

I recently presented a webinar exploring the practical aspects of sieving method – the advantages and disadvantages.  I compared the method to other techniques such as laser diffraction indicating the increased wealth of information that can be obtained with these more modern instrumental techniques and the common pitfalls and assumptions of the screening technique.
More than 800 of you registered for the webinar and I received a large numbers of interesting questions which I have been working steadily through. I thought it would be a good idea to share the questions and answers via the blog, so here they …

The recently announced merger of Malvern Instruments and PANalytical could not be better timed from the Cement industry’s perspective. Both companies are market leaders in their respective technology fields – Malvern in particle characterization and PANalytical in elemental and mineralogical analysis – and both having strong teams of application experts with a lot of experience in cement production and characterization.
The synergy between the teams and product offerings was described in a recent webinar by Harald van Weeren of PANalytical and myself. The live event was attended by over one hundred participants and …

Peeling back the foil on a gold coin. Popping a perforated window on a festive calendar. Pursuing your favourite coloured wrapper around a bowl. The prize inside many little packages we open this season will be chocolate.
The secret of chocolate’s almost universal appeal is in the mouthfeel the “snap” of the first bite, how the chocolate melts and how it coats the inside of the mouth. Despite being a consumer experience, mouthfeel is strongly related to materials science – chocolate being a complex composite material.

Additive manufacturing, also commonly referred to as 3D printing is the process of building a three dimensional structure or component from the ground up, usually layer by layer. There are seven main categories of additive manufacturing processes, as defined by the ASTM Committee F42 on Additive Manufacturing Technologies. These include:

Powder Bed Fusion
Vat Polymerisation (Stereolithography)
Material Extrusion (Fused Deposition Modeling)
Material Jetting
Binder Jetting
Sheet Lamination

Powder bed fusion is an Additive Manufacturing process in which a powder layer is deposited on a building platform and a laser or electron beam used to selectively melt or fuse …

Size distributions are a description of the fact that not every component in the sample has the same size.  There is a range of sizes present, as mathematically described by a distribution.
There are different ways to represent this distribution in terms of:

Intensity – How much light comes from the different components?
Volume or mass – How much volume is present in the different components?
Number – How many particles are present in the different components?

This often causes confusion, and the intensity volume number issue is one of the most popular blogs.
Intuitively …
