XPT - C Particle size and shape analysers for suspensions - flexible and economical

Measuring instruments for particle size and shape measurement by dynamic image analysis. Results as reports with particle size distribution of equivalent diameter, maximum length, length-width ratio, roundness, fractal number, particle number and many other parameters. Online measurement option.

XPT-C particle analyser

Working principle XPT-C: particle supsension is pumped through the flow-through cell on the outside of the unit - either directly from a process or from a sample. A CCD camera continuously takes images at a rate of 30 frames per second, which are analysed in real time and results displayed and saved.

Complete system: consists of stainless steel housing with camera and lighting system by high-power LED, flow-through cell, peristaltic pump, magnetic stirrer, controll system, PC and software.

Measurement range: from 1 micron upwards, maximum resolution 0.5 micron/Pixel
