The Particulate Systems Analysis 2011 Conference and Exhibition ((PSA 2011); 5-7 September 2011; Edinburgh, Scotland;) will see a large involvement from Whitehouse Scientific. Whitehouse principals will present three full papers on recent applications in particulates analysis for the pre-lunchtime session on 5 September (Clarendon Suite).
'Production and Characterisation of High Resolution Particle Size Reference Standards' will be presented by Dr Graham Rideal (CEO); 'Single Parameter Sieve Certification Using Precision Glass Microspheres' by Jamie Storey (Managing Director), and 'Image Analysis - Is 'Seeing' really 'Believing'. Overlooked Parameters Can Significantly Affect the Results' by Keith Brocklehurst (Senior Scientist).
Whitehouse Scientific will also preview two new products at the associated exhibition: the new cost-effective ShapeSizer image analysis system and an improved range of silver-coated opaque particle sizing standards.
The new ShapeSizer is an image analysis system from Whitehouse Scientific originally designed for certifying BCR reference microspheres. The addition of a state of the art CCD camera, computer and sophisticated software, has produced a cost-effective solution for a wide variety of industrial particulate applications where both size and shape are critical particle size parameters.
Whitehouse Scientific's new opaque standard covers the range from 10 - 100 µm. This standard has been the subject of exhaustive testing, by leading manufacturers and end users through the Quality Audit Scheme of LGC Standards and has resulted in unequivocal consistency in laser diffraction analysis.
The Whitehouse Scientific team will be available throughout the event and will be pleased to discuss any aspect of particle size and shape characterisation and the application of calibration standards.
The PSA 2011 Conference and Exhibition will be held from 5 - 7 September 2011 at the Hilton Grosvenor Hotel in Edinburgh. http://www.psa2011.com/
