About this book

This edited volume presents most techniques and methods that have been developed by material scientists, chemists, chemical engineers and physicists for the commercial production of particulate materials, ranging from the millimeter to the nanometer scale. 
The scope includes the physical and chemical background, experimental optimization of equipment and procedures, as well as an outlook on future methods. The books addresses  issues of industrial importance such as specifications, control parameter(s), control strategy, process models, energy consumption and discusses the various techniques in relation to potential applications.
In addition to the production processes, all major unit operations and characterization methods are described in this book. It differs from other books which are devoted to a single technique or a single material. Contributors to this book are acknowledged experts in their field.

The aim of the book is to facilitate comparison of the different unit operations leading to optimum equipment choices for the production, handling and storage of particulate materials. An advantage of this approach is that unit operations that are common in one field of application are made accessible to other fields. The overall focus is on industrial application and the book includes some concrete examples. The book is an essential resource for students or researchers who work in collaboration with manufacturing industries or who are planning to make the switch from academia to industry.

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.
Dr. Merkus is the editor and author of two other Springer books: "Particulate Products" (2014) and “Particle Size Measurements” (2009).

Dr. Gabriel M.H. Meesters is affiliated to DSM Food Specialities and Delft University of Technology Delft. He has 10 patents filed and 5 issued to his name.
