Many P&G formulated products require particle incorporation in liquid. The quality of incorporation directly impacts product performance and stability. At present, process development for particle incorporation is conducted empirically. There is significant challenge to scale lab and pilot plant learnings to production.

A formulation in process typically has a mixture of particles, drops and gas bubbles. It is highly desired to have breakthroughs in inline measurement to enable multiphase particle size (distribution) characterization. At the same time, fundamental and/or semi-empirical models are also needed to guide process optimization and scalability. An example of particle incorporation will be given to show how measure and model can help to solve an industrial problem.
