Particulate Systems

Was established as a division of Micromeritics Instruments in May 2008.
The idea was to create an agile and responsive organization that is dedicated to
the discovery and commercialization of unique technologies in particle and material characterization.

Our mission

From our beginning our mission was simple: to develop and to seek out innovative technology that advances the science of materials and particle characterization. Partnering with exceptional smaller, innovative manufacturers, and interfacing with university IP technologies we have helped introduce, support, service and improve those products while providing world-wide access to the research community.

This very unique, integrated approach permits the Particulate Systems division of Micromeritics to introduce key technologies and instrument solutions that without our assistance, may never have reached the research community. We continue to look for further innovations and encourage you to contact us with your ideas, concepts, or a product of your own, were you see our services as an advantage to transforming your idea into reality .

As an Organization

We remain focused on our mission. We work continuously to discover new innovative technologies that will improve the efficiency and the capture of important data to help provide a continual pathway to success in the laboratory.

Several of the instrument solutions we have introduced are now helping to obtain data in critical energy areas such as lithium ion battery research, unconventional reservoir evaluations, and MOFs (Metal Organic Frameworks). Our EFFI instrument for catalyst evaluation provides needed insight to the petroleum industry to find the most cost-effective methods to produce low cost energy products.

Your Success is a Priority

Each member in the Particulate Systems business unit has one clear objective; that is ensuring the success of our customers. We believe that we provide much more than just innovative instruments. Our actual product is a total productive solution that results in the success of each individual that we serve.

Our staff and the scientist that support our staff, are at your disposal to assist in the proper choice of an instrument for your specific application. We also provide assistance in method development and to answer any other questions you may have. We believe our most important job starts after you purchase an instrument from Particulate Systems.
