"This instrument is very easy to use, very durable, and gives good repeatability of size distribution in dry powder. My only concern is the cost, which is not cheap for size measurement."
Modular image analysis sensor for laboratory particle size and shape characterisation from 1 µm to 30,720 µm
The modular image analysis sensor QICPIC combines size and shape analysis of disperse particle systems within a size range of 1 μm to 30,720 μm. Flexible sensor adaptation for analysis of powders, granules, fibres, suspensions and emulsions is provided by a wide range of dispersing and dosing units. Numerous implementations in pharmaceutical and chemical industry, food and beverage technology or soil science just denote the array of applications in industry and research.
The most prominent feature is an exposure time within the sub‐nanoseconds regime allowing for an image capturing frequency of up to 450 frames per second. Initially, this ensures a high confidence level for measuring results based on a great number of observations. At the same time, the characterisation of finest, cohesive powders with RODOS becomes an option. The necessary level of energy application for effective dry dispersion results in particle flows with velocities of up to 100 m/s. The extremely short exposure times ensure capturing and clear imaging of even fastest singular particles. Powerful evaluation software supports the simultaneous determination of all relevant size and shape characteristics. A particle gallery together with diverse screening criteria facilitate creation of specific and meaningful reports, even if several millions of particles are captured.
