Principle of Operation
The use of automated image analysis is increasingly being recognized as an attractive technique to characterize particle shape and size distribution. Traditional methods, such as laser diffraction, although highly efficient, give limited information on particle shape proving image analysis as the best tool for performing particle analysis.
Disperser Unit – An automated sample disperser subjects powder samples to a controlled quantity of force by subjecting the sample to a burst of air as a vacuum is released. The sample disperser breaks agglomerates and assures an even spread of sample across the slide. Unit includes disperser column, two slides base, high vacuum dry pump assembly, and USB computer control unit and software.
