CAMSIZER X2*

Dynamic Image Analysis System Particle Size

The new CAMSIZER® X2 provides particle size and shape distribution analysis needed for the quality control of fine powders and suspensions, measuring (0.8 µm to 8 mm). More precise and faster analysis of particle size and particle shape helps to improve product quality and reduces rejected lots. Since the measurement time is only 1-3 minutes, it also saves time when compared to conventional sieve analysis.  

Newly developed optical systems with ultra-strong LEDs for highest resolution and excellent depth of field allows the user to reliably detect the smallest amounts of contaminants or outlying particle shapes. The CAMSIZER® X2 is ideal for the manufacturing of:

  • Pharmaceutical powders, granules, and fine pellets
  • Pulverized and granulated food
  • Detergent powder and chemical raw materials
  • Plastic powders (even with an electrostatic charge on the surface)
  • Metal powders for additive manufacturin, MIM, solder powders
  • Abrasives (medium-size and small grit)
  • Fine sands and construction materials
  • Fine plastic, glass, and carbon fibers

The CAMSIZER®X2 is manufactured by Retsch Technology GmbH and distributed in many parts of the world by HORIBA.

*Available in select countries.

Identifying Trace Large Particle Impurities
Identifying Trace Large Particle Impurities
In this note, a series of metal samples with varying amounts of impurities were prepared gravimetrically and the resulting size distributions measured to illustrate how a high speed, dual camera system can be used to find small amounts of large particle impurities.

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.
Fertilizer Applications
Fertilizer Applications
Fertilizers are chemical compounds given to plants to promote growth. The particle size of fertilizer materials directly affects release rate, potency, and working hazards such as dust generation.
Catalyst Supports
Catalyst Supports
Hydrotreating catalysts come in different sizes and shapes depending on the application and manufacturer. The size and shape of the catalyst support are important specifications that require quantification. The CAMSIZER provides fast, accurate, highly reproducible results of all physical definitions important to catalyst manufacturers and end users.
