Particle shape

Beyond size, particle shape analysis is an essential part of understanding material behaviour and optimising product performance. It can influence many properties, including specific surface area, flowability, abrasiveness and chemical activity. Therefore, particle shape analysis is very important in industrial and scientific research on powders, emulsions and other particulate products. 

Bettersize offers advanced solutions for measuring particle shape through static and dynamic image analysis. This technology provides detailed insights into the morphology of particles within various products.

Particle size and shape analysis report

Particle image analysis is a technique for determining particle size and particle shape parameters based on the captured images obtained by using specific cameras. The critical step in particle image analysis is processing the captured images, which provides two-dimensional pictures from the pixels counted. 
The data acquired is used to provide image binarization, enhancement of picture quality, and particle identification. The processed picture is then analyzed automatically by a computer with the help of algorithms to yield the particle size distribution and related particle shape parameters of the observed sample.

Bettersize's image analysis solutions empower industries to unlock the full potential of their products by gaining a deep understanding of particle shape. Whether it is to improve formulations, enhance manufacturing processes or ensure quality control, these solutions play a vital role in driving innovation and success.
