Environmental industry


Particle size analyses offer precision results which are essential to evaluating air filters, water, and other materials for environmental applications. From indoor air quality to the environment of our planet, particle size and characterization data can verify quality, compliance with regulated safety standards, or offer solutions to issues with air and water filtration systems.


Regulation – results from particle size and concentration analyses can help regulatory agencies determine compliance with air and water quality standards. For example, emission engineers can use particle size distribution results to design air handling equipment such as scrubbers, cyclones, and baghouses to remove fugitive dust prior to release into the air.

Water Quality – the water quality industry uses particle characterization results to evaluate filtration systems and adhere to wastewater regulation standards. City municipalities can use particle size and concentration data to ensure safe drinking water and evaluate water quality of industry discharge.
