The Particle Insight Size and Shape Analyzer

June 20, 2014

Particulate Systems’ Particle Insight is ideal for applications where the shape of raw materials – not just the diameter – is critical to the performance of the final product. The instrument offers up to 28 different shape parameters analyzed in real-time in either aqueous or organic solvent suspensions. The Particle Insight operates in a range suitable for a wide variety of industrial, biological, and geological specimens from 1 to 800 micrometers. Its unique recirculating sample module and precision optics are designed to acquire and report statistically valid measurements quickly, an essential quality control capability in many manufacturing processes.

Particle Insight features include the ability to track sample shape changes over time as well as the capability to store a collection of particle images. The user has the option of viewing only those particle images that meet any combination of the analyzer’s 28 shape parameters. It also has an automated fill-and-rinse feature allowing for true unattended operation. Particulate Systems is a brand of Micromeritics Instrument Corp.
