Particle size analyzer

, by Stephanie Pallier

The Mastersizer S has the flexibility to allow wet and dry measurements to be made in rapid succession, as well as enabling the user to change rapidly from aqueous to solvent based dispersions.

Many materials need to be measured in a wet dispersion. These include materials that are used wet in the manufacturing process, sticky materials such as clay or kaolinite, or materials that have a tendency to agglomerate when dry, such as titanium dioxide.

For materials that are used and produced dry in the manufacturing process, such as cement, powder coatings, pharmaceuticals and micronized powders, dry measurement is preferable.

Range of particle size measurements: 0.05 to 900µm.
