Material Characterisation

RCS offers a range of services that fully characterise materials in a range of operational environments, allowing processes to be optimised from feed to waste streams and effectively minimising energy and utility consumption. We deliver our clients the information they need to create the optimum process environment and mitigate risks across the life of a project.

  • Particle specific gravity (SG), particle size distribution (PSD), and specific surface area (SSA) measurements
  • Investigation of the effects of pH and ionic strength on particle surface chemistry with zeta potential measurements/ measurement of surface charges of a range of materials
  • Mineralogical analysis of materials using X-ray diffraction (XRD) and X-ray fluoresence (XRF) techniques
  • SEM microscopic analysis of material
