Ensuring Efficient and Accurate Particle Size Analysis

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.

Justin Hoover, Quality Manager, Metals and Additives LLC, US.

Metals and Additives LLC predominantly manufacture dry powders. As a consequence, the company required an alternative to the standard method of wet analysis. In the past, they have used a laser diffraction instrument of another make, but this lacked the dry dispersion module and, ideally, it needed an instrument capable of performing particle size distribution analysis on both wet and dry samples.
