Particle Analysis Instruments for the Powder & Bulk Solids Industry on Display at PTXTexas

Posted on: September 26th, 2013 by Microtrac

Microtrac, the global pioneer of particle characterization is displaying their industry preferred particle analysis product line at the Powder and Bulk Solids conference in Houston, Texas from October 15th to the 16th.

The Powder and Bulk Solids Conference, commonly referred to as PTXTexas, is Texas’s premiere event for Process Engineers who are looking to expand their knowledge of innovative technology and best practices for the process, handle, package, transport, testing, and storage of dry particulates and bulk solids.  The event is held at the Reliant Center, located in the South Central section of Houston.

Microtrac will be exhibiting the following instruments located at Booth 25:

S3500 – The S3500 is a laser diffraction particle size analyzer that can measure dry powders or wet slurries ranging in particle size from 0.02 to 2800 microns.  Equipped with a proprietary modified Mie calculation, the S3500 has the ability to accurately measure non-spherical particles, unlike analyzers from other manufacturers.

PartAn – Formally referred to as the DIA, the PartAn is the only Dynamic Image Analyzer on the market that can view particles in 3D.  Able to measure particles ranging in size from 20 microns to 35 mm, the PartAn is a perfect alternate to sieve analysis.  The PartAn’s software has the ability to calculate 25 morphological parameters, unlike sieves, which can only measure one.  The PartAn is also available with online capability, a feature that is unique to Microtrac.

Unfortunately these instruments did not make the trip to Houston, but Powder & Bulk Solids professionals can still learn about the unique benefits of Microtrac’s extensive product line.

Dust Particle Characterization

Dustmon – When producing powders, dust can become a problem.  There has never been a way to accurately characterize dust, until now.  The Dustmon is a dust particle characterization instrument that measures how much dust is created by a powder product.  The Dustmon can also determine how long it takes dust to settle, as well as, calculate the particle size distribution.

We look forward to seeing you in Houston!
