New ParticleTrackTM E25 Provides Accessible Inline Characterization

Press release date: Feb 11, 2013

A new inline characterization tool from METTLER TOLEDO provides a simple, effective method for robust in situ aqueous chemistry particle system tracking, helping to enhance optimization and reduce quality control costs in labs and production environments across a wide range of industries.

METTLER TOLEDO is pleased to announce the launch of its new inline particle system characterization tool ParticleTrackTM E25. Modifying focused beam reflectance technology (FBRM®) for use in settings where pneumatic motors are impractical, the fully electric ParticleTrack E25 measures aqueous particle and droplet systems for the chemical, food, consumer product, biotechnology, and mining industries. This probe-based technology eliminates sampling’s measurement variability for simpler, faster and more cost-effective system characterization, as well as the more consistent and less expensive manufacturing outcomes it promotes.

Based on traditional FBRM® technology yet requiring no air/gas supply, this robust FBRM probe allows real-time product-quality optimization, greater formulation stability, and enhanced processing whether particle systems are being observed in 2-liter beakers, 20,000-liter vessels, or pipeline flow. This versatility and ease-of-use is helping to put FBRM® technology in the hands of labs and production environments in industries such as mining and consumer products, where FBRM® has historically been considered a luxury.

Now, those working in non-explosive environments in almost any industry can access FBRM®’s ability to optimize processes in real-time. This includes FBRM® advances such as the ability to detect and correct for particles that are “stuck” to the probe and enhanced measurement consistency over a wider dynamic range. These improvements maximize sensitivity and data integrity and encourage more intuitive data analysis.

ParticleTrack E25 is ideal for measuring modern manufacturing processes such as crystallization and precipitation; homogenization and emulsification; and solid/liquid or liquid/solid separations including flocculation, coalescence, and flotation. For more on how this usable, cost-effective technology can help characterize and optimize particle system in situ over a broadened range of industries and applications
