Malvern Insitec systems are founded on industry standard laser diffraction technology, specifically engineered into a rugged and robust on-line measurement platform.
A patented multiple scattering algorithm within the RTSizer real-time sizing software ensures accurate, reliable particle measurement at high process concentrations, regardless of instantaneous process loading.
Sampling interfaces for dry and wet systems can be tailored to meet the needs of different processes and will accommodate mass flows from 1 to 500,000kg/h. The most widely used incorporates an air venturi to aspirate from the process line and disperse sample for measurement. Dynamic samplers are available for high tonnage abrasive solid streams, in-line flow cells are used for very dilute processes, and a new wet cell can be applied either in-line or on-line, according to the concentration of the liquid suspension.
Systems integration is straightforward using Malvern Link - a software suite that is based on the Intellution iFix industrial SCADA package. Malvern Link is delivered as standard with all Insitec systems.
The Insitec platform has been used to develop a range of instruments (sensors) that can be applied and customized to meet the individual and exacting requirements of different industrial processes. The instrument, process interface, analysis software, automation and data reporting can all be customized.
