About this book

This book focuses on the practical aspects of particle size measurement: a major difference with existing books, which have a more theoretical approach. Of course, the emphasis still lies on the measurement techniques. For optimum application, their theoretical background is accompanied by quantitative quality aspects, limitations and problem identification. In addition the book covers the phenomena of sampling and dispersion of powders, either of which may be dominant in the overall analysis error. Moreover, there are chapters on the general aspects of quality for particle size analysis, quality management, reference materials and written standards, in- and on-line measurement, definitions and multilingual terminology, and on the statistics required for adequate interpretation of results. Importantly, a relation is made to product performance, both during processing as well as in final application. In view of its set-up, this book is well suited to support particle size measurement courses.

About the authors

Dr. Henk G. Merkus has been working at Delft University of Technology for about 35 years, the last 20 years of it in Particle Characterization in the Particle Technology Group. Since over 15 years he has been a member of ISO/TC24 on Sieving and Other Methods for Particle Size Measurement. Although retired, he continues to be active in giving courses on this subject, in the Netherlands as well as in Sweden and the United Kingdom. 
Henk Merkus is the Editor of three other Springer books: "Particulate Products" (2014), “Production, Handling and Characterization of Particulate Materials” (2016), and "Particles and Nanoparticles in Pharmaceutical Products" (2018), all in collaboration with co-editor Gabriel M.H. Meesters and the last one with Wim Oostra as third editor.
