Application Note: Determine Whether Your Sample is Dispersing or Milling with Hydro Sight’s In-Line Insight
3 September 2015

Accurately measuring the particle size distribution of a sample relies on various factors. Foremost amongst these is a reliable, high-precision sizing instrument, and equally as important is the successful dispersion of the sample to its constituent primary particles. In this application note, use of the Hydro Sight imaging accessory in-line with the Mastersizer 3000 has been demonstrated in assisting rapid and simple determination of whether the application of ultrasound results in dispersion or milling of a sample of urea-formaldehyde.
