Fast and reliable alternative to sieve analysis – free webinar

Fast and reliable alternative to sieve analysis – free webinar.

Sieve analysis, a crude, but effective method to measure the particle size distribution of a material.  Although widely accepted, there are more efficient ways to size your particulate.

Microtrac, the global pioneer of particle characterization solutions would like to invite you to a webinar that showcases a fast, accurate, and reliable sieve analysis alternative.  The webinar will be held on 9/25/14 and begins at 11am EST.

Dynamic Image Analysis (DIA) is an optical measurement that has been around for 25 years, but recently started gaining popularity in the material science community as a sieve alternative.  DIA’s use high-speed, high-resolution cameras to take multiple images of the particles as they pass through a sensing zone, while software algorithms track and analyze various morphological parameters of the material.

The PartAn 3D is the only 3D DIA instrument on the market that has the ability to measure particles in 3D, which allows a user to quickly identify out of spec product.  In addition to 3D, the PartAn 3D measures 31 morphological parameters including 15 size parameters, sphericity, aspect ratio, concavity, density, transparency, and compactness (to name a few) in one fast analysis.

The presentation will highlight sieve shortcomings and offer a solution to the following:

  • operator error
  • lack of robust reporting capability
  • worn screens
  • length of time to measure sample
  • inability to track each particle

Additionally, we will also demonstrates the PartAn 3D’s sieves correlation capabilities.

Here is what you missed!
