September 2016– New Analytical Capabilities

NEW - AVEKA recently purchased HORIBA's Camsizer Digital Image Processing Particle Size and Shape Analysis System, which provides rapid and precise particle size and particle shape distributions for dry powders and bulk material in the size range from 3 microns to 30 millimeters. This technique provides a wide variety of information about the sample, from a general size measurement, spherocity, and aspect ratio of particles, to shape parameters that can be closely correlated to specific performance characteristics. This also allows correlation to existing data from techniques as diverse as sieving, microscopy, and hand caliper measurement.     www.horiba.com/scientific/products/particle-characterization/particle-shape-analysis/details/camsizer-602/

NEW - AVEKA now offers Coulter Counter particle sizing, which uses an Electrical Sensing Zone to measure particles size distribuition. Sample turnaround time is 2-3 days. Please contact us with additional questions.


CCE Technologies business will complement AVEKA’s process technologies and expand the breadth of processing capabilities.

Woodbury, MN (January 23, 2013) - AVEKA offering contract manufacturing and custom research and development services announced today that they have acquired CCE Technologies which specializes in ultra fine grinding and sizing solutions to enhance its processing capabilities and offers jet milling and classification contract manufacturing services. CCE Technologies will be become part of a new company called AVEKA CCE Technologies, LLC.  For additional information please visit AVEKA CCE's website: www.avekacce.com





AVEKA's CEO/Founder, Willie Hendrickson has been elected to be the next President of IFPRI, International Fine Particles Research  Institute. He will officially take the reins at the Annual Meeting which is being held June 14 - June 20, 2013 in Newark, Delaware.

The International Fine Particles Research Institute, IFPRI, is a unique global network of companies and academics with active research programmes in particle science and technology. It is a non-profit organization.

Its membership represents some of the world’s largest manufacturing industries: bulk and specialty chemicals, pharmaceuticals, minerals, construction, coatings, detergents and foods. The industry members work alongside some of the finest academic researchers in the world in particle science and technology, and other allied areas.

Since its inception in 1979, IFPRI has explored the whole range of particle science and technology including the formation, modification, mixing, dispersion, handling and transport of particles. The particles can range in size from nanometres to millimeters. Dispersions of particles in gases, liquids and pastes are also studied.

June 23, 2011 – AVEKA "Microencapsulation in Space" Workshop

In January 2011, a 12 year old boy – Brandon and his school teacher (from the Chicago area) "Googled" several organizations to ask for help before their experiment could be accepted into the Endeavor space shuttle launch , and after being turned down by the first several companies they called, they finally reached AVEKA. Willie Hendrickson, the CEO, had an interesting discussion with Brandon and his teacher and continued communication for several months. We found out that his experiment was accepted to be a part of the Endeavor space shuttle launch which initially was to occur on April 29, 2011. Willie and our Director of Research & Development at AVEKA attended the space shuttle launch in Orlando with the student and his teacher. While the space shuttle launch was delayed Willie was able to meet several students at the launch gathering and inviting them to Minnesota after the experiment returned from space to do additional testing on Brandon's experiment at our AVEKA Headquarters.

On June 23rd, 2011, AVEKA hosted our first ever "Microencapsulation in Space" Workshop. There were 7 students, 5 parents and 1 teacher in attendance. They were able to test the materials that were on the space shuttle and spend a day as a scientist in AVEKA's labs.
