Having over 40 years experience with particle characterisation, we at Microtrac have been able to develop multiple ways to assist our customers. We understand that some customers take pride in being able to find answers to their problems themselves, so we have created a library of user resources, keeping those customers in mind.
Microtrac User Resources
Explanation of Particle Counter Data – The following is a list of terminology, abbreviations, and calculations shown on reports
Understanding the Impact of Microscopic Observations Compared to Mass / Volume Distribution Relationships – This paper describes an experiment in which Microtrac data and competitive light scattering data were evaluated and compared to optical microscopy and the issues that arise
Understanding Laser Diodes Used in Particle Size Instruments – This note addresses questions that often arise when types of lasers are considered by customers and lay particle size personnel
Recalculation of Microtrac Data to Emulate Sieve Data (And Other Methods) – There are multiple methods that can be used to provide particle size distributions. These include dynamic light scattering, which includes the well-known Microtrac method of frequency spectrum analysis.
