Materials Characterization

Materials characterization instruments analyze the physical and chemical composition of materials. Examples are thermal analysis instruments that determine heat flow capacity of carbon storage material, Raman Microscopes that determine the chemical signature of surfaces, and optical instruments that measure the stability and particle size distribution of emulsions.

  • With the use of the Eyecon2 – Direct Imaging Particle Analyzer, clients may better comprehend particle size and shape variation, which allows them to ascertain why a process is failing, why yield is decreasing, the cause of product variation, and if or how a process should be scaled up for commercial manufacture.

    Eyecon2 has reduced cycle time and increased yields due to its use of Fluidised Bed Coating (e.g. Wurster), fluidised bed Granulation/Drying, Twin Screw Granulation, Dry Granamination/Roller Compaction, Extrusion Spheronisation, Milling, Blending, and product transfer process equipment. It uses direct imaging processed in real-time, with ellipses fitted to each particle’s boundary, shape and size reported back, highlighting variations. Continuous monitoring of processes critical quality attributes (CQAs) can be used to devise a data-driven control strategy, and non-product contact is used to ensure proper measurements every time.
