How Suspension Rheology is Effected by Particle Characteristics

Malvern Instruments

This whitepaper discusses the effects of particle properties on suspension viscosity and rheological behaviour.

The physical properties of dispersed particles in such systems, including particle size, concentration, and electric charge (zeta potential), can all strongly influence the overall (bulk) rheological properties of a suspension, therefore defining product behaviour and functionality.

Understanding these interactions is critical when it comes to achieving a desirable product performance.

Download this free whitepaper to find out about the effects of particle concentration, optimising particle properties, the effects of particle size distribution, the effects of particle shape, the effect of zeta potential, and tools for characterising suspensions.
