The shape of a particle can affect almost every aspect of how a product is made, how the product behaves, how measurements are made and processes are performed. For example, while sphere-shaped particles flow easily, long, rectangular particles do not. Shape can also affect characteristics such as texture and solubility. Particle shape analysis instruments are used in virtually every industry, from geology, to food and pharmaceuticals. Today, there are several technologies available to provide rapid and precise particle shape analysis from 0.5 to 30,000um.
