Bulk density is a property of particulate matter including powders, granules or larger aggregates and is a measure of the weight per unit volume of a collection of particles. The control of bulk density is important for a variety of reasons.

For example, the compression conditions for a pharmaceutical tablet and the porosity of a ceramic green body are related to powder bulk density as are packaging requirements for storage or transport of a powder mass.

Powder particle size and shape distributions govern how particles can and will pack together and hence will influence a powders bulk density. The presence of voids and agglomerates also affect bulk density and can lead to areas of weakness in a structure (such as ceramics and sintered metal components) that industries aim to minimize by careful control of size and shape distributions.

This webinar explores the packing of materials from a semi-theoretical aspect leading onto the factors that lead to optimum packing of denser structures in the ceramics (size, shape, zeta potential) and sintered metal powder compaction industries.
