Particle technology and research

Small particles and powders are the basis of many industrial products. In order to know how to process these particles, research is needed into their properties. At Solids Solutions we are engaged in powder and particle technology. Among other things, we conduct nanoparticle testing & research, using various instruments to determine the size of the particles. But also other properties are analyzed. Nanoparticles are very small and are added to many different products to improve their effect. In some products the particles occur naturally.

Surface analysis

To determine the surface of particles, Solids Solutions uses physical gas adsorption. In a BET surface area analysis of nanoparticles, gas is adsorbed on the surface of the substance. Monolayer formation of gas molecules takes place on the surface of the material. This can provide information about the BET surface. Capillary condensation of nitrogen is used to calculate the pore volume and pore size distribution. We use different methods and instruments according to the information that needs to be obtained about a specific substance.

Solids Solutions knowledge center and academy

Over the years, Solids Solutions has accumulated a lot of knowledge in the field of powder and particle technology. We use this knowledge to help product developers in various industries. In addition, we like to share our knowledge with other professionals. We do this by giving seminars, courses and presentations. We also regularly organize events and conferences. If you would like to delve deeper into our research and related subjects, you can visit our knowledge center. Here you will find various publications, articles and other documents that you can request. Of course, you can always contact us for more information.
