Home > Press > Malvern Instruments and Rutgers collaborate on materials characterization lab at Center for Ceramic Research

Abstract:
A new particle characterization and rheology laboratory is being installed at the Center for Ceramic Research (CCR) at Rutgers (State University of New Jersey), as part of a collaborative project between the university and Malvern Instruments. Malvern is providing a suite of state-of-the-art instrumentation that will be used by researchers from the CCR, other university departments and partnership universities (Penn State and New Mexico) to continue the exploration of the links between rheology and particle characteristics. The new facility will be managed by Professor Richard Haber, director of the CCR.

"Properties such as particle size, size distribution and zeta potential often directly influence rheological behaviour," said Professor Haber. "Malvern recognizes this and, uniquely, has in-house expertise and instrumentation in both fields. They are an excellent partner for our work. We look forward to using these new tools to push forward understanding in this industrially important area."

The 500 square foot laboratory will contain rotational and capillary rheometers - the Gemini and RH 2000 respectively. These will be complemented by a Zetasizer Nano S for nanoparticle characterization, and a Mastersizer 2000 for laser diffraction-based particle size measurement in the range 0.02-2000 microns. All of these state-of-the art instruments are manufactured by Malvern Instruments.

"Both rheology and particle characterization are core to Malvern's materials characterization business, so we are delighted to be collaborating with Professor Haber and the CCR," said Fred Mazzeo, Americas Product Manager - Rheometry, Malvern Instruments. "We know that the world-class researchers at Rutgers will make great use of our systems and we look forward to seeing the results. There is enormous interest in exploring the links between particle properties and rheology, and the outcome of this research will have widespread application."

Malvern Instruments provides a range of complementary materials characterization tools that deliver inter-related measurements reflecting the complexities of particulates and disperse systems, nanomaterials and macromolecules.

About Malvern Instruments Ltd
Malvern Instruments provides a range of complementary materials characterization tools that deliver inter-related measurements reflecting the complexities of particulates and disperse systems, nanomaterials and macromolecules. Analytical instruments from Malvern are used in the characterization of a wide variety of materials, from industrial bulk powders to the latest nanomaterials and delicate macromolecules. A broad portfolio of innovative technologies is combined with intelligent, user-friendly software. These systems deliver industrially relevant data enabling our customers to make the connection between micro (such as particle size) and macro (bulk) material properties (rheology) and chemical composition (chemical imaging).

Particle size distribution, particle shape information, zeta potential, molecular weight, chemical composition, and bulk materials properties can all be determined with instruments from the Malvern range. The company’s laboratory, at-line, on-line and in-line solutions are proven in sectors as diverse as cement production and pharmaceutical drug discovery.

Headquartered in Malvern, UK, Malvern Instruments has subsidiary organizations in all major European markets, North America, China, Korea and Japan, a joint venture in India, a global distributor network and applications laboratories around the world.
