Minneapolis, MN (PRWEB) August 15, 2007
The American Filtration and Separations Society (AFS) is offering short course training on October 15 in Ann Arbor, Michigan.
To kickoff the "Emission Solutions in Transportation" Conference, Oct 16-18, 2007, that the American Filtration and Separations Society (AFS) is holding in Ann Arbor, there will be seven short courses on October 15, 2007. One of these courses is "Basics & Applications of Particle Characterizations."
The "Basics and Applications of Particle Characterization" course attendees will learn to improve characterization and data interpretation skills for better particle separation, control of particulates, particulate formulation, suspensions and dispersions.
This course will be of interest to scientists and engineers who want to improve their characterization and data interpretation skills for better particle separation, control of particulates, particulate formulation, suspensions and dispersions. Given the wide range of technologies available for particle size and shape characterization, selection of the best technology for a particular application is not a trivial task. This short course will cover the basics of particle size (from nanoscale to millimeters) characterization along with several commercially available technologies. Participants will acquire the knowledge necessary for proper instrument selection and data validation and interpretation.
The following topics will be covered:
- Basic concepts
- Data representation
- Number, Surface Area, Volume Distributions
- Technologies & Data Interpretation
- Laser diffraction
- Image Analysis
- Dynamic Light Scattering
- Optical Particle Counting
- Electrozone Particle Counters
- Ultrasonic Spectroscopy
- Hydrodynamic Chromatography
