Guideline:
ISO 13320 (Particle size analysis - Laser diffraction methods)
Version / remarks:
Internal Company method
Principles of method if other than guideline:
- Basic principle
This method of measurement is based on the interaction between light beams and solid particles. Under the assumption of spherical particles, a laser diffraction pattern can be used to deduce the particle size distribution within a sample.

- Apparatus
Cilas granulometer
Measuring range: 0.04-2500 μm

- Procedure
The sample is suspended in a suitable liquid, if necessary, under the addition of a dispersion agent. The suspension is homogenized by stirring and treatment with ultrasound and subsequently pumped through a cuvette. The cuvette is simultaneously radiated by a helium-neon-laser. The light diffraction pattern resulting from the interaction of laser beam and solid particles is detected by a photomultiplier and converted into a particle size distribution by a processor unit.
