Guideline for Determination of Particle Size Distribution

VIEW METHOD

Scope
This guideline applies to the determination of particle size distribution of powdered chemical leavening agents by mechanical sieving. Generally, the particle size distributions for these materials are defined by their respective specifications by using several screens with mesh sizes ranging from 60–325 U.S. Standard (250–44 µm). The intent of this document is to outline a general procedure, provide suggested values for key parameters where appropriate, and highlight controllable sources of error.
