Particle and Bulk Powder Characterization (TWa)

#44 - In situ particle and flow measurements in concentrated mixtures (TWA01)
New developments of instrumentation and its application to concentrated dry and wet mixtures will be featured. Papers will describe innovations in instrumentation using single point, multiple point and tomographic measurement techniques applied to modeling, optimisation and control of particulate systems. These applications may be based on a broad range of industrial sectors but special interest will be given to areas of pharmaceutical production and energy systems. Examples of measurement methods to be considered might include; optical, ultrasound, terahertz, electrical impedance, ionization techniques, electromagnetic induction, particle imaging etc and to include spectroscopic versions of these modalities and new data interpretation methods based on soft sensor approaches. Example of the use of multiple and tomographic sensors to describe velocity and density maps are also especially sought
