Grinding Solutions offers microscopy services using our ZEISS SterREO Discovery.V8 microscope with AxioVision software. Using this system, it is possible to visualise particles down to approximately 50 um for preliminary evaluation of mineral samples and ceramic grinding media. Furthermore the AxioVision image analysis software allows detailed quantitative analysis of ceramic grinding media characteristics, including sphericity and particle size distribution. Linking this analysis with ceramic media wear testing means that not only can wear rates be measured, but the underlying mechanisms behind media wear and grinding performance variation can be established. Our microscopy services and image analysis are a hugely powerful new addition to our range of ceramic media wear testing packages.

We received a Grant from the BIG2 project funded from the ERDF as part of the European Structural and Investment Funds Growth Programme 2014-2020 which partly funded our new Microscope which we commissioned in November 2016. Since then, the microscope has enabled us to break into new national and international markets and employ 1 new member of staff.
