Company Background

Micromeritics was founded in 1962 to fulfill the analytical instrumentation needs of industrial and academic laboratories involved in the emerging field of particle science and technology. Micromeritics has become one of the leading global suppliers of materials characterization analytical laboratory instrumentation and services. The company manufactures a broad line of automated analytical laboratory instruments that measure the physical characteristics of powders and solids for fundamental research, product development, quality assurance and control, production, and process control applications. Physical characteristics determined include:

  • Particle Size
  • Particle Count
  • Surface Area
  • Pore Volume, Pore Size and Pore Size Distribution
  • True (Absolute) Density, Skeletal (Apparent) Density, Envelope Density, and Bulk Density
  • Catalytic Activity, Active Surface Area, and Strength of Adsorption Sites

Particulate Systems, a Micromeritics brand, is dedicated to advancing the science of materials characterization by identifying new innovative instruments. Small companies and independent innovators with novel instrument designs benefit from Micromeritics’ extensive sales and service network while end users are offered new and exciting technology. Particulate Systems offers instruments that are complementary to Micromeritics’ core product line. Materials characterization analyses include:

  • Nano Particle Size and Zeta Potential
  • Particle Shape
  • High-Pressure Adsorption Isotherms
  • Dynamic Vapor Sorption
  • Activity and Selectivity of Catalysts
  • Surface Energy
  • Segregation Testing
  • Powder Strength
  • Magnetic Content

Micromeritics also operates Micromeritics Analytical Services, Micromeritics Pharmaceutical Services, and PoroTechnology, all providing contract sample analyses and consulting services. Materials characterization services include:
