CAMSIZER P4*

Dynamic Image Analysis System Particle Size

The CAMSIZER® P4 Digital Image Processing Particle Size and Shape Analysis System provides rapid and precise particle size and particle shape distributions for dry powders and bulk material in the size range from 20 µm to 30 millimeters. This technique provides a wide variety of information about the sample, from a general size measurement, to shape parameters that can be closely correlated to specific performance characteristics. This also allows correlation to existing data from techniques as diverse as sieving, microscopy, and hand caliper measurement.

The CAMSIZER® P4 is a compact laboratory instrument for simultaneous measurement of particle size distribution and particle shape, number and density of powders and granules. The patented design is the only one to use two cameras and greatly extends the measurement range while maintaining accuracy and sensitivity throughout.

Thanks to the unique scanning of all particles and the newly developed fitting algorithms, the measuring results are 100% compatible to those of sieve analysis. This makes the CAMSIZER® P4 the ideal time and cost-saving alternative for incoming and outgoing controls and for in-process quality control.

Application Examples: abrasives, carbon products, pelletized carbon black, coffee, catalysts, fertilizers, food products, glass/ceramics, metal powders, pharmaceuticals, plastics, polystyrene, refractory products, salt, sand, sugar, and many others.

The CAMSIZER is manufactured by Retsch Technology GmbH and distributed in many parts of the world by HORIBA.

*Available in select countries.

  • High resolution for narrow mono-modal or multi-modal distributions
  • Reliable detection of smallest amounts (<0.01%) of oversized grains
  • Particle shape analysis (e.g. detection of agglomerates, broken particles or contaminations)
  • Flexible data evaluation thanks to the particle library and 3D Cloud
  • Fully comparable to sieve analysis results
  • Excellent reproducibility
 
Size and Shape of Salt using Dynamic Image Analysis
Size and Shape of Salt using Dynamic Image Analysis
Many salt producing facilities have now switched to dynamic image analysis (the CAMSIZER), which is quicker, more efficient, and provides additional information about the shape of the salt crystals. This application note describes how the CAMSIZER has been successfully used to characterize salt size and shape.
Frac Sand and Proppants
Frac Sand and Proppants
Hydraulic fracturing is used in the oil and gas industry to increase the flow of oil and/or gas from a well. Proppants are pumped into the oil well with fracturing fluid to hold the fissures open. The proppant size, shape, and mechanical strength influences the integrity of the newly created fractures, and therefore the flow of oil and gas out of the well.
