Our Services

We offer the development, investigation and measurement methods presented on this website as a research service.

In the area of process engineering development, we offer you our experience to support you in the formulation development of new products. If you would like to test finished formulations or products on different systems, e.g. for pelletizing, we will also be happy to support you here.

In the field of particle measurement technology, our entire range of measurement technology is available to you for characterizing your samples. The range of testing options extends from abrasion tests on granulates, mechanical properties (force-displacement behavior), X-ray tomographic structural analysis and calorimetric measurements to the investigation of the influence of ambient conditions (temperature, relative humidity) on the properties and process behavior of powders and granulates (caking, stickiness).

We are also happy to offer you our full support for completely different problems not listed here in the areas of process engineering, bulk solids and particle technology.


With over 30 years of experience in the field of particle and agglomeration technology, Prof. Dr.-Ing. Ulrich Bröckel has extensive knowledge.

This includes not only the investigation of interparticle interactions but also the physical characterization of particle systems.

We look forward to your exciting questions and problems
