Size of particles

Particle size is critical for the production of other formulations such as tablets, capsules, or suspensions. The powders consist of solid, heterogeneous particles that differ in shape, size and surface area. Each particle has its own shape and volume, optimal for specific processes. Grinding is the mechanical reduction of a coarse solid material into smaller particles, and the reduction of the size of the particles (below 100µm) is a key process in many research and quality-control laboratories to ensure the highest quality of the final product.
