Powder characterization

Production-monitoring and process-engineering analyses – such as particle/grain size distribution using laser diffraction or BET measurement – enable our customers, such as those in the 3D printing sector, to increase quality and yield.


One of the most frequent services we provide at ChemiLytics for our customers is analysis of particle size distribution.

Particle size distribution

Laser diffraction analyzers quickly provide exceptionally precise data on particle size distribution in wet and dry dispersions – from the millimeter to nanometer range.

In addition, our laboratory offers the following services for powder analysis:

  • Analysis during production for process control and monitoring
  • Specific surface (using BET) / pore volume distribution
  • Measurement of grain size distribution
  • Sieve analysis
  • Tap density measurement

Our GD-MS system is used to characterize solids. It can be used to test the purity of semiconductive and conductive materials, for example.

Featured equipment for powder characterization

Our laboratory has a multitude of high-quality precision devices that enable the precise analysis results we consider to be our standard. Our equipment for powder characterization includes the following devices and machines:
