different stability/instability phenomenons


A huge number of phenomena and processes are characterized by LUM analysers. Comprehensive data and parameters of different materials are determined. For your orientation the following examples are given:

  • Characterization of consolidation phenomena

  • Dewatering of sludge and sediments

  • Direct evaluation of demixing phenomena of suspensions, emulsions, suspoemulsions, gels, foams

  • Elasticity of particles and sediments

  • Evaluation of flocculation, coalescence, Ostwald-ripening

  • Fast stability testing

  • Packing concentration of sediments

  • Particle size distribution according to ISO 13318-1 and ISO 13318-2

  • Particle-particle interactions

  • Phase separation

  • Polydispersity and Polymodality

  • Redispersion behaviour

  • Sediment and creaming layer heights

  • Shelf life calculation

  • Selection and dosage of additives
    (e.g. surfactants, emulsifiers, demulsifiers)

  • Velocity distribution of particles in the centrifugal field.
