The most important thing when setting a specification is to relate it to why you need to measure particle size. For example, what aspect of product performance, or what part of the manufacturing process, are you trying to control? 

In this webinar we will look at how to choose the appropriate particle size parameter to specify product performance. To achieve this, we will describe some of the range of parameters calculated from the particle size distribution, and how they can be used with appropriate tolerances to provide robust specifications.
