Great sales experience and results.
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area: Chemical manufacturer

"Very simple to use. Set up was painless. Creating the SOPs and reports were easy and quick. Results were repeatable and reproducible while comparing data between 2 Malvern Mastersizer 3000 systems. Sales experience was excellent. Malvern went above and beyond to meet all of my demands and timeline."

Smaller, increased sensitivity and more productive
Rating: 4.3

  • Application Area:Pesticide R&D, product and process development

"The software makes the difference for this instrument. The smaller footprint of the 3000 versus the 2000 is noticeable however the software improvements are great. The ability to create SOP's from manual measurements and the optical properties optimizer help our lab save time and improve the quality of the analyses."

Excellent particle size instrument, do yourself a favor and buy one
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Analyze final formulation and in production samples

"Instrument works really well, the user interface is very easy to use. Results are repeatable and the run time is short. The report printout has everything we need and looks professional. When we did need a repair, not due to the instrument but to poor maintenance by one of our departments, the person that came out was knowledgeable and explained everything that was wrong with the instrument in great detail."

Really good, and reliable instrument with a great software package.
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Drilling fluids

"The instrument is very easy to operate. Sometimes, the measurement cell can be dirty with fine particles stuck to the measurement window glass, but it is very easy to clean with lens cleaning wipes. The software is fabulous. In my opinion, it really makes this instrument standing out compared with other peers. The software allows a great control on how to collect the data (background, stirring rate, sonication, etc.), but also how to process the data. A lot of times, the sample being analyzed is a mixture of different components, and hence the refractive value should be carefully chosen to represent the average result of all major components. The software allows users to change the refractive index value, and gives the goodness of fit to the measured profile. Thus users can fine tune the refractive index value to get the best match to the measured profile, and achieve "true" particle size information. "

"The Mastersizer 3000 is very user friendly. We have been able to easily train all of our employees on proper use and cleaning. We are able to achieve consistent results on a daily basis, and also our results correlate very well to our production sites. The Mastersizer has been an exceptional instrument, and the software is very simply to use yet complex. It allows us to tailor our SOP's to specific products and raw materials."

Excellent product! Great modular design and easy interface.
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Analyze particle size distribution for pharmaceutical products and intermediates

"Pros: 1. Compared to the old 2000 unit, the new unit has enhanced sensitivity, a much more modern interface, and a good selection of settings for various common materials. 2. The customer support is great. Then vendor conducts product demos, onsite training, and is available through email/phone for troubleshooting/support. 3. The product is more modular and switching between different modules is easy. Cons: 1. Requires a larger sample size than the older model for the standard attachment."

A good way to quantify data in terms of effectiveness of blenders.
Rating: 4.3

  • Application Area:Analyzing particle size after various foods have been through blenders.

"This product was very good at helping quantify the effectiveness of various blenders. I used various degrees of blade sharpness coupled with taste testing to find a "golden zone" of how diced up the food being blended should be."

Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Sediment and soil analysis

"I have both the Hydro LV wet dispersion unit and the Aero S dry dispersion unit. Both work great and provide excellent results. The software is incredibly easy to use. Parameters within the system are easy to adjust to fit a variety of material types. I've used the Mastersizer 2000 in the past and the Mastersizer 3000 is an excellent upgrade from an already terrific piece of equipment."

"We make extensive use of this instrument so it basically has easily payed for itself. It's easy to develop documentable and reproducible methods for each sample and both tech service by telephone and the repair engineer who trained us and has done the annual PM once already have been very helpful when needed."

Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Polymer catalyst

"Very user friendly while at the same time it can be used for a wide range of applications. We can test other products that are very different from what we routinely test. The maintenance plan gives us peace of mind and helps us maintain our accreditation. Service has always been excellent weather there is an issue or a question we have always been helped thoroughly."

  • Application Area:Particle Size

"The Mastersizer 3000 is a welcome upgrade from the 2000. It is easier to use with more capabilities of looking at the data and even looking at the quality of the data. The smaller sample size allows for analysis of samples that are limited in amount for testing. Services have always been very helpful and for most minute problems/questions, they have been able to be solved over the phone. I would highly recommend this product to a colleague. Before purchasing this equipment, they were very thorough in the demonstration and did not leave me with any questions. The questions I did ask were answered easily. "

The Mastersizer 3000 is the latest generation of the world’s most popular particle sizing instrument.

The Mastersizer 3000 laser diffraction particle size analyzer delivers rapid, accurate particle size distributions for both wet and dry dispersions with the minimum of effort. Measuring over the nanometer to millimeter particle size ranges, it packs exceptional performance into the smallest of footprints, bringing operator-independent measurements that every user can rely on.

The Mastersizer 3000 uses the technique of laser diffraction to measure the size of particles. It does this by measuring the intensity of light scattered as a laser beam passes through a dispersed particulate sample. This data is then analyzed to calculate the size of the particles that created the scattering pattern.


Mastersizer 3000 Features:

  • Class-leading particle sizing performance in a compact footprint.
  • Intuitive software with built-in expertise to ease your workload.
  • Flexible reporting to display your data the way you want it.
  • Rapid and effective wet dispersion.
  • Fast, reliable particle size measurement of fragile and cohesive dry powders.
  • Mastersizer know-how throughout, for results you can rely on.
