Gypsum particles are present in a wide range of applications including food additives, construction materials and in fertilizers. Depending on the application, the packing density and flowability of gypsum powders is critical for the quality of the final product. These parameters are dependent on the particle shape: elongated particles and those of irregular shape tend to pack poorly and reduce flow. In this application note the Morphologi® automated image analysis system is used to characterize shape of gypsum particles.
