The Mastersizer 3000 from Malvern Panalytical was purchased in 2016 by the leading manufacturer and supplier of powder additives for the battery and plastics industries Metals and Additives LLC. In this article, the Quality Manager at MAC, Justin Hoover, describes the company’s need for a tool to conduct particle size analysis that was more efficient, versatile and accurate. He also explains how the new system was decided upon, the advantages of the Mastersizer 3000 and what it was like working with Malvern Panalytical
The Need for Accuracy and Efficiency
We are always looking to expand our capabilities and applications so that our products can benefit our customers in a wide array of industries, even beyond plastics and batteries. Particle size analysis is a key part of the testing of our materials and products.
