Particle Size and Shape
Digital image processing is becoming more and more an established method, along with sieve analysis and laser diffraction for particle size analysis in the measuring range above 1 µm. This method is superior to the others in its resolution, precision and reproducibility and delivers additional detailed particle shape information.
The CAMSIZER P4 & CAMSIZER X2 from Retsch Technology are compact laboratory instrument for simultaneous measurement of particle size distribution and particle shape of fine powders, granules and suspensions in a range from 1 µm to 30 mm can be measured.
The CAMSIZER X2 uses the principle of digital image processing[http://www.retsch-technology.com/applications/technical-basics/]. The patented principle is fairly simple: Dispersed particles pass in front of two bright, pulsed LED light sources. The shadows of the particles are captured...
