Reference
Endpoint:
particle size distribution (granulometry)
Type of information:
experimental study
Adequacy of study:
key study
Study period:
March 03, 2015
Reliability:
1 (reliable without restriction)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
test procedure in accordance with generally accepted scientific standards and described in sufficient detail
Principles of method if other than guideline:
Laser light scattering. The test was performed according to the SOP - STR 071 (Hydro 2000S) protocol.The particle size distribution was analyzed using the Mastersizer 2000 tool, which uses the technique of laser diffraction to measure the size of particles. It measures the intensity of light scattered as a laser beam passes through a dispersed particulate sample. This data is then analyzed to calculate the size of the particles that created the scattering pattern.
Type of method:
Laser scattering/diffraction
