New Practice for Particle Size and Shape Analysis of Catalyst Materials by Dynamic Flow Imaging Instrumentation

1. Scope

The development of test methods, classifications, practices, and terminology pertaining to catalysts, zeolites and related materials used in their manufacture, and the stimulation of research related thereto. The work of this Committee will be coordinated with other ASTM Committees and other organizations having mutual interests.




Analysis by non contact imaging technology can expand the process control capabilities for manufacturers of catalyst materials. In addition to particle size, imaging technology can assess particle shape which is a critical parameter of these particles. There currently are no standards covering the use of imaging analyzers for catalyst materials.

The title and scope are in draft form and are under development within this ASTM Committee.
