Cement Particle Sizing Solutions for Automated Lab

March 26, 2013

Malvern Instruments has introduced a new robotic solution for cement analysis on the Mastersizer 3000 particle size analyzer that enables its easy integration within an automated laboratory setting. Used in combination with the Mastersizer 3000’s ceramic venturi, this robust new interface delivers fully automated, highly repeatable measurement for all cement types, with little manual intervention or maintenance. Performance tests confirm the generation of consistent high-quality data with no sample cross-contamination. Automated laboratories are established across the cement industry. They are frequently used for all routine plant analysis and are designed to ensure that what would normally be ‘manual’ interaction with the analyzers is handled by robots. Such facilities deliver value through the production of high-quality data and by eliminating the need for manual input. Consequently the equipment they contain must achieve a demanding specification. Malvern’s new robotic solution integrates seamlessly with the Mastersizer 3000, using the analyzer’s vibratory feeder.
