What is Particle Size Distribution D10, D10 Particle Size

  • Particle size Distribution D10 is also written as X10, D(0,1) or X(0,1).
  • It represents the particle diameter corresponding to 10% cumulative (from 0 to 100%) undersize particle size distribution. In other words, if particle size D10 is 7.8um, we can say 10% of the particles in the tested sample are smaller than 7.8 micrometer, or the percentage of particles smaller than 7.8 micrometer is 10%. D10 is a typical point in particle size distribution analysis. D10 is also divided into Dv10, Dw10 and Dn10. Dv10 means volume D10, whereas Dw10 is mass D10 and Dn10 is number D10

  • In a Malvern Mastersizer Result Analysis Report of Particle Size Analyzer the D10 is represent as D(0.10)
  • In a AimSizer Particle Size Distribution Result Analysis Report the D10 is represent as D10.
  • Particle Size D10 is used to represent the test results obtained by laser diffraction method.
  • Particle size distribution D10 is one of the D values being widely used in describing particle size distributions.
  • The D10 grain size is commonly used to represent the midpoint and range of the particle sizes of a given sample.
