Median Particle Size (Microns) - MDPS

This test procedure was employed in the Foresight Ceramic Database and now is available for those having an account at Insight-Live.com. Accumulating test data using the variables defined in these procedures enables us to create tools that enable you to compare the physical properties of materials and recipes.

Notes

A quick way of deciding if a clay is coarser or finer than another. The is the micron size when 50% of the clay is finer and 50% is coarser.

  • (Glossary) Ultimate Particles

    Processed ceramic materials are typically ground to 200 mesh and feel very fine to the touch. With some you can detect some particle grains between your fingers. The amount of these "physical particles" can be measured by washing or shaking the ceramic powder through a sieve. Using water washing and...
