Introduction to classification

  • Claus Bernhardt
Part of the Powder Technology Series book series (POTS, volume 5)


The principle of the methods of particle size analysis based on classification is to simultaneously or successively divide a quantity M A of the analysed material into n + 1 part quantities M i for n ⩾ 1 different particle sizes x i (Fig. 2.1). The size range between x i-1 and x i is called (particle size) class; the included quantity of particles which is referred to the total feed quantity p i is called the fraction.
