Particle Size Analysis for Mining and Minerals

Choice of particle size analysis technique is a function of the goals of the analysis. Many of the particles encountered in mining are characterized by sieves (classifiers). These are screens with a known opening (mesh) size. Particles smaller than that mesh size will pass through the screen and larger particles

AMIT 135: Lesson 3 Particle Size Distribution Mining

Sedimentation (Stokes Diameter) Optical (Laser deflection or reflection) Mean Particle Sizes. The mean particle size of a distribution is typically measured by either the arithmetic or geometric mean of the maximum (dmax) and minimum (dmin) particle sizes. The arithmetic mean is most accurate for symmetric particles

An Introduction To Particle Sizing Close Examination

The examination of a particle under a microscope provides a two-dimensional image. There are a number of diameters that can be measured in order to characterize it. If you take maximum particle length as the diameter, you actually say that the particle is a sphere (equivalent) of this maximum dimension.

Settling Velocity of Irregularly Shaped Particles SPE

For particles >0.13 cm in diameter, the settling velocity increases proportionally to the square root of the particle diameter. The settling behavior of the small-diameter range is known as laminar slip, and that of the large diameter range as the turbulent slip. Between these two regimes is the transitional-slip regime.
