#484 - Measurement, Monitoring and Characterization Methods for Particulate Systems (03C06)
Particulate materials pervade almost every economic sector as feed-stocks, intermediaries or products. Annual production varies from kilogram quantities for some specialty chemicals to hundreds of thousands of tonnes for some pigments and millions of tonnes for some plastics. In this session we encourage papers relevant to the handling transport and storage of bulk materials. Topics of interest include flow measurement, and measurement and characterization of particle physical properties including size, shape and density; we are also interested in the interaction of particulate matter with the process (for example erosion and wear). Papers on in-line systems that provide data in real time, and (rapid) characterization methods requiring small sample size are particularly welcome.
