Particle Size and Shape Analysis of Fine Powders

The new CAMSIZER XT covers a particle size range from 1 µm to 3 mm

The quality control of fine powders in a size range from 1 µm to 3 mm can be substantially improved with Retsch Technology’s new CAMSIZER XT: More precise and faster particle size and particle shape analysis helps to improve the product quality, reduce rejects and save costs.

The design of the Camsizer XT is optimized for fine samples in a size range from 1 µm to 3 mm. Fine particles tend to agglomerate which makes it difficult to record the properties of a single particle. Therefore, it is important to have different ways of feeding the sample to the analysis area in order to get the desired dispersion of the agglomerates without destroying the individual particle.

The CAMSIZER XT offers three alternative dispersion methods: dispersion by gravity of pourable, not agglomerated particles. Dispersion of agglomerated particles by air pressure, accelerating and dispersing the particles through a nozzle with adjustable overpressure. Finally, particles can be dispersed in liquids, optionally with ultra sound. Thus it is possible to choose the optimum method for each sample type.


Benefits:

  • Dynamic Image Analysis with wide measuring range from 1 µm to 3 mm
  • Simultaneous determination of particle size and particle shape
  • Sensitive detection of oversized and undersized particles
  • Short measurement times from 1 to 3 min
  • Measurement results 100% compatible to sieve analysis, if required
  • Dispersion options include air pressure, gravity and liquids
