Mineral Characterization

For any production, the stable and reliable supply of raw materials is a key factor for high quality products. However, unlike synthetic materials, industrial minerals are made by nature and therefore subject to natural variations. Some applications, e.g. the pharmaceutical or technical ceramics industry, are very sensitive to variations in the final product. Therefore a thorough characterization and specification of relevant properties e.g. chemical and mineralogical composition, grain size distribution, specific surface area or particle size and shape etc. is required for any new development.

As an experienced and internationally well accepted specialist in the analysis and engineering of industrial minerals, ANZAPLAN provides the know-how to quantify relevant properties and how to establish specifications. Our laboratory is fully accredited for all those methods needed to quantify an array of specification parameters amongst which just one or two may be critical for specific mineral application.
