Overview

This is the fifth edition of the highly successful work first published in 1968, comprising two definitive volumes on particle characterisation. The first volume is devoted to sampling and particle size measurement, while surface area and pore size determination are reviewed in volume 2.
Particle size and characterisation are central to understanding powder properties and behaviour. This book describes numerous potential measuring devices, how they operate and their advantages and disadvantages. It comprise a fully comprehensive treatise on the wide range of available equipment with an extensive literature survey, and a list of manufacturers and suppliers.
The author's blend of academic and industrial experience results in a readable technical book with information on how to analyse, present, and extract useful information from data. This is an essential reference book for both industrial and academic research workers in a variety of areas including: pharmaceuticals, food science, pollution analysis and control, electronic materials, agricultural products, polymers, pigments and chemicals.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Particle size measurement is the crucial technique in powder technology, as the properties of a powder are dependent upon its particle size distribution. This reference for industrial and academic researchers discusses a wide range of measurement techniques in detail, together with chapters on accurate sampling and surface area determination. This edition (third was 1981) increases coverage of on- line analysis, reflecting the shift in emphasis of powder characterization toward in-process size analysis. Annotation c.
