Particle Technologies

Particle technologies are process technologies that produce, use, or separate particles. 

For example, pharmaceutical industry produces precise drug formulations based on particle technologies. Activated carbon particles are commonly used in the food industry as an adsorbent to remove impurities, off-flavours, and odours from liquids such as water, beverages, and food ingredients. Chemical industries may use particles as adsorbents to remove certain components in separation processes. One example of separating particles in the chemical industry is the use of cyclones, which employ centrifugal force to separate solid particles from gas or liquid streams based on their particle size and density.

Particle Technologies

The technologies that produce particles can be divided into solidification, crystallization, and particle modification processes. 


We can define solidification as a widely applied process that shapes a melt into a specific form.


Crystallization is a particle technology that involves the formation of solid particles with a well-defined crystal structure from...

Particle Modification

Particle technologies can further be used to intentionally modify particles and their properties.

Particle Use

Particles can be used in processes to efficiently achieve purified and reaction products.

Particle Separation

Mechanical separations involve the use of physical mechanisms to separate...
