Micromeritics offers an extensive line of particle size analyzers based on a variety of measurement techniques because the most appropriate selection of instrumentation depends on many factors including the physical and chemical properties of the materials, their size ranges, the analytical throughput requirements, resolution, precision, and the environment in which the instrument is to be operated.
Precisely determining particle size has become essential in a great many industries. It is a fundamental physical characteristic that must be selected, monitored, and controlled from raw material to finished product to assure the desired performance. Correspondingly, much can be learned about processes by studying the sizes of particles that were produced by or involved in the process. No single sizing technique is ideal for all materials and applications.
Dynamic Light Scattering for Nanoparticle Size and Zeta Potential
Instruments in the Zetasizer range are used to measure particle and molecular size from less than a nanometer to several microns using dynamic light scattering; zeta potential and electrophoretic mobility using electrophoretic light scattering; and molecular weight using static light scattering.
Saturn DigiSizer II: Particle Sizing Instrument
The Saturn DigiSizer II™ particle sizing instrument, is the first commercially available particle sizer to employ a light scattering analysis technique. The light scattering technique utilizes advanced digital detection technology to deliver exceptionally high levels of resolution, accuracy, repeatability, and reproducibility.
Elzone® II 5390
The new Elzone® II 5390 determines particle size by using the highly accurate and reproducible electrical sensing zone method which is widely recognized as a highly effective method of counting and sizing a wide variety of organic and inorganic materials.
H.E.L. Limited Subsieve AutoSizer (SAS): Particle Sizing
The H.E.L. Limited Subsieve AutoSizer (SAS) is a new addition to the established field of air-permeability particle sizing. It has been developed as a direct and improved successor to the widely used Fisher Model 95 Sub-Sieve Sizer (FSSS).
Particle Insight: Dynamic Image Analyzer
The Particle Insight provides dynamic image analysis, is a state-of-the-art particle analyzer which is ideal for applications where the shape, not just the diameter, is critical to raw materials. One unique feature of the Particle Insight is its ability to offer end users up to 28 different shape parameters. This offers the user flexibility in quantifying particles by shape parameters that may have a critical effect on the end product.
