CSIRO Takes Malvern Mastersizer Out to Sea
Work by the CSIRO Minerals team in Australia to analyze oil rig wastewaters has demonstrated the robustness of Malvern's Mastersizer design, and the breadth of applications for which this family of particle size analyzers can be used. The work was carried out on a platform 130 km out at sea, using a Mastersizer which had been transported directly to the site. Despite the rigours of...Read More »
Particle Size Analyzers are designed for use at- or on-line.
Liquid Process Sizer (LPS) is designed for continuous wet particle size measurement, while Insitec D is suited for use in hazardous areas where potential for dust explosions exists. Both systems utilize Insitec laser diffraction-based particle size analyzer technology. Each component of LPS can be individually tailored to process. LPS sampler extracts 2.5 ml liquid slugs from full pipe section,...Read More »
Increased Options for Automated Fluidized Bed Control as Parsum Demonstrates its Utility
Recent trials have demonstrated that the Parsum inline particle size analyzer (Malvern Instruments) can be used successfully to monitor particle growth in a fluidized bed. As part of a joint development project between Glatt Ingenieurtechnik GmbH, Weimar, and Parsum GmbH, Chemnitz, the use of inline particle size measurement was investigated, under various operating conditions. Complex flow...Read More »
University of Maryland Uses Malvern Spraytec in Fire Suppressant Studies
Studies of fire suppression sprays in the Department of Fire Protection Engineering at the University of Maryland, directed by Professor André Marshall, have been significantly enhanced by the acquisition of a Malvern Spraytec system. The Spraytec allows direct measurement of spray droplet size, producing data that facilitate model development and validation. Spraytec is a laser...Read More »
Tracking Ink Particle Size Using a Mastersizer 2000
Using Malvern's Mastersizer 2000 particle size analyzer, a leading ink-jet ink manufacturer has succeeded for the first time in monitoring particle size reduction throughout the entire milling process. Thanks to the Mastersizer 2000's extremely broad measurement range of 0.02 to 2000 microns it can measure the size of both agglomerates and primary ink particles equally well. This capability also...Read More »
