Description: The effect of particle size, shape and surface on the behavior of a powder is continually being studied. In quality control of a powder, seldom is a given parameter known well enough to predict accurately overall behavior of a powder. Therefore, many particle parameters must be evaluated to determine the influencing factors, including width, length/width ratio, volume, surface area, reentrant surface, bulk density, compressibility, surface roughness, pore volume, degree of sphericity, etc., and their relation to extrudability, pressability, firing performance, etc. Determining these things is called powder or particle characterization.
