Product News: Measuring Particle Shape and Size with Dynamic Image Analysis

Fast. Safe. Easy. Discover the possibilities withthe ANALYSETTE 28!

13 Mar 2017

The new ANALYSETTE 28 ImageSizer is the ideal instrument for analysis of particle shape and size of dry, free-flowing powders and bulk solids in a measuring range from 20 µm to 20 mm.

Via the optical analysis of particle shape and particle size, damaged particles, contaminates, agglomerates or oversized or undersized particles are identified accurately and fast, and can be viewed as single images. At the same time, the instrument offers a fast and efficient particle size measurement. The measuring time, depending on the sample quantity, is below 5 minutes and the result is available immediately. This makes the ANALYSETTE 28 ImageSizer the perfect measuring instrument for the easy quality control, as well as for research and for laboratory tasks – and it is the fast alternative to sieving.

Fast and Economic Alternative to Sieving

If you perform many and frequent sieve analyses, the ANALYSETTE 28 ImageSizer is the ideal, time-saving alternative in just three steps: Load the sample, start the measurement, read the result. Without any weighing, assembling of a sieve stack and elaborate cleaning. And with substantially reduced follow-up costs, since calibration and initial purchases of sieves are omitted. Additionally, besides the particle size distribution also valuable information about the particle shape is received.

Fast Analysis of Particle Shape and Size

  • Extra wide measuring range 20 μm – 20 mm, individually adaptable
  • High-performance camera with telecentric lenses
  • Extensive library for morphological analysis
  • Practical tools for reliable quality monitoring
  • Fast, simple operation via SOP control
  • Freely editable report generator for individual measurement reports

Powerful Camera - Strong Lenses – Simple Operation

The core of the ANALYSETTE 28 ImageSizer is a 5-megapixel camera, which provides highest resolution of even smallest particles. The telecentric lenses guarantee completely distortion-free images of each individual particle in the same scale wherever it is located in the measurement volume.

Optimal Sample Flowrate via Controlled Feeder

The U-shaped cross section of the feeder channel ensures good material feed. An AutoCheck function determines and controls the particle concentration. The ideal feed rate of the feeder can be set according to the sample properties in the SOP. Your advantage: always the optimum number of particles per image for a reliable and significant analysis.

The FRITSCH-Cloud – Easiest Analysis at a Glance

Even the evaluation of the measuring results is uniquely simple with the ANALYSETTE 28. The evaluation software ISS displays each recorded particle clearly as a data point in the immediately available FRITSCH Cloud. The important information for you about the morphology will be shown by the position of the data point in the Cloud. You freely choose which statement is of interest to you: the Sphericity in regards to the Minimum Feret Diameter, the aspect ratio, applied on the porosity, or the convexity as a function of the particle Cross Section. Especially convenient: have several measurements displayed simultaneously in a chart and you will immediately see the differences between the relevant samples. A direct visual evaluation: brilliantly simple, uniquely flexible.

FRITSCH-Plus: Freely configurable report generator

For automatically displaying the results clearly arranged on the monitor – optionally as a cloud, as cumulative curve, as bar diagram or in table form. Or define a layout according to your sieve analysis. The displayed results are printed out as you set it up on the monitor.
