Standard Test Method for Particle Size Distribution of Catalytic Material by Laser Light Scattering
|Publication Date:||10 April 2000|
|ICS Code (Particle size analysis. Sieving):||19.120|
1.1 This test method covers the determination of the particle size distribution of catalyst and catalyst carrier particles and is one of several found valuable for the measurement of particle size. The range of particle sizes investigated was 20 to 150-[mu]m equivalent spherical diameter. The technique is capable of measuring particles above and below this range. The angle and intensity of laser light scattered by the particles are selectively measured to permit calculation of a volume distribution using light-scattering techniques.
