Standard Test Dusts

The production of Test Dusts is one of Particle Technology's critical operations. Our test dusts are used world wide for the testing and certification of a wide range of equipment such as automotive and aerospace engines, filtration systems and machinery.

The Test Dust production department within Particle Technology has considerable experience in manufacturing material to meet UK, EU, US, Japanese and ISO Standards. Test Dust can also be manufactured to simulate the range of Arizona Test Dusts and to meet specific requirements of the customer whatever the distribution and composition. Standard Test Dusts are available to create an environment from the desert to the city, from gas pipeline to aviation fuel, from railways to aircraft. This allows you as the customer to test your products in real life situations in order to achieve product superiority.

Within our plant facilities and laboratory we offer a range of equipment for the manipulation of powder, including: high speed pin mills, ball mills, continuous flow vibratory ball mill, planetary mill, air classifier and a multideck sieving machine. For the purpose of dissolution of solids and liquid mixing we also have helical screw blenders and high shear mixers. We can handle most materials in our versatile plant from diamond to carbon fibre.
All materials are supplied with a Certificate of Conformance and a Material Safety Data Sheet.

Miscellaneous materials can also be supplied such as Cotton linters, Iron chips, Aluminium chips, Carbon fibre rods and SOFTC-2A Oil Contaminant.
