Neue ISO 18747-1:2018

"ISO 18747-1:2018 specifies a method for the determination of the density of solid particles or liquid droplets (below referred to generically as "particles") dispersed in a liquid. The method is based on the fact that a particle wholly immersed in fluid experiences buoyancy equal to the weight of the fluid displaced by this particle (Archimedean principle), and if its mass force matches the buoyant force, it stops gravitational or centrifugal settling/creaming and the particle remains suspended."

Conference Report on 2018's Int'l Workshop Dispersion Analysis & Materials Testing

This year, the Workshop clearly focussed on particle characterization and stability analysis. A large variety of application fields was covered by the oral presentations, ranging from inorganic particles, bacteria cultures, dairy products, and fruit drinks to technical suspensions containing ceramic or organic particles as well as to emulsions for diverse industrial applications. Besides particle characterization and stability testing, the analytical instruments by LUM play a decisive role in the determination of filterability or in the optimization of production processes...
