Webinar | Quality Control of LI Batteries By Measuring Size and Shape

Lithium-ion batteries are used for a number of consumer products, from cell phones to electric cars. While capacity might be the focus of one industry, others may consider power more important. In order to properly develop the materials for LI batteries, companies need to understand which parameters are most important to their specific application. In this on-demand webinar we'll give an overview of Li-ion batteries and different applications, and the different analytical techniques used in the characterization of battery materials. Speakers: Terry Stauffer Particle Characterization Specialist James Pastore Customer Application Specialist & Batteries Expert Questions? Contact Us! ... Read More

Webinar | Quality Control of Road Aggregates Using 3D Image Analysis

Crushed stone aggregate is used as loose bed foundation for highway bed foundation, airport runways and railways. These aggregates need to meet certain size and morphology specifications based on their application. To ensure the product is compliant, quality departments sometime use primitive tools such as sieves and calipers to verify the size and shape of the material. These methods are outdated, labor intensive, and error prone. The following problems associated with using sieves and calipers to measure size and morphology of large quantities of materials: Time consuming Error prone Small, unrepresentative sampling There is a faster, more accurate method to ...

Microtrac Officially Becomes Part of Verder

Last month the VERDER Group entered into an agreement to acquire Microtrac and MicrotracBEL from Nikkiso, a Japanese based company focused on technologies in highly specialized fields ranging from specialty pumps to carbon fiber-reinforced plastic components. On July 1st, 2019, the transfer to Verder was complete and Microtrac officially became part of the Verder family. On July 10th, Microtrac's York facility welcomed Andries Verder to help with the changing of the guard. A new, temporary sign was installed while our sign makers work on a more permanent solution. Microtrac's York facility is a freshly renovated, 34,000 square foot Operations Center. ... Read More

Webinar: 3D Dynamic Image Analysis Compared to Other Methods to Identify Crystal Shape

In this webinar we will present data from research conducted at University of Hohenheim on crystal samples of Sodium Chloride, Mono Sodium Glutamate (MSG) and Sugar. These crystals all exhibit particle shapes which diverge from spherical shape by different degrees. These different particle shapes, as well as sizes, can be measured and quantified on the same instrument – a dynamic image analyzer. Those measurements were compared with measurements made on other instruments – a stand-alone laser diffraction analyzer, a simple scanner reporting size and shape, and a manual microscope and SEM. We’ll show how the image analyzer provides data that ... Read More

Webinar: Hybrid Technology For Complete Metal Powder Morphological Characterization

Microtrac’s Sync uses an innovative hybrid method of particle size and shape measurement that combines laser diffraction and image analysis. Metal Powders require high flowability and packing density for even, fast loading and high strength in final parts. Key parameters to spec are Sphericity, Smoothness, and Size Distribution. These properties are important for outgoing QC for Metal Powder manufacturers and incoming QC for Powder Metalllurgy parts manufacturers. This presentation describes the QC requirements and a combination analytical instrument which measures them. Join us for this webinar as we cover: How Microtrac integrated laser diffraction and dynamic image analysis technology in ... Read More

Microfluidics & Microtrac Technology To Produce Water Soluble CBD and THC Nanoemulsions

We will be providing an overview of nanoemulsions, formulating specifically with CBD and THC and processing nanoemulsions with the Microfluidizer processor. Tim will go into details about particle size analysis with Microtrac and then discussing the results of the CBD and THC nanoemulsions he has created with the M110P Microfluidizer Processor. Speaker, Tim Jochum Tim Jochum has a B.Sc. in Chemistry from Texas A&M-Corpus Christi, and a M.Sc. in Material Science from the Colorado School of Mines. Prior to going back to school for his Masters degree, he worked at the research laboratory for DuPont Electronic Polymers in Ingleside, Texas. ... Read More
