CILAS announces the introduction of a new line of laser particle size analyzers. This new line of particle size analyzers provides enhanced automation while continuing CILAS' tradition of offering the most reliable, accurate and easiest to use analyzers in the market. The new design includes several patented features which ensure the most accurate and precise particle size results.
A new ergonomically designed sampling interface allows operators to efficiently analyze both liquid and dry samples. The patented compact optical bench is mounted on a cast-iron base plate providing both a rugged and alignment-free operation.
Some of the new technological advantages included in the new line of particle size analyzers are as follows:
- Integration of both laser diffraction and image analysis. Each CILAS analyzer can be configured to include "ExpertShape" image analysis. "ExpertShape" has been developed to analyze the particles morphology by using an inverted optical microscope. This integrated design allows the analysis of both particle size and shape for the same aliquot of sample.
- Each system can be configured with fully integrated liquid and dry dispersion modes. This patented design eliminates the need for the operator to make any manual adjustments. Switching between dispersion modes is completely controlled by the "SizeExpert" software.
- The Dry Jet Dispersion system includes a new vibrating system which provides enhanced software control of all particle flow parameters. A new digital regulator controls air pressure and optimizes particle de-agglomeration.
- The new electronic design offers enhanced system automation. Using "SizeExpert" software all functions are fully automated. This design reduces energy consumption and is compliant with the environmental standard RoHS - Restriction of Hazardous Substances.
CILAS' new product family includes the 990, 1090 and 1190 particle size analyzers. All three analyzers can be configured to analyze samples in either a liquid, dry or both liquid and dry dispersion modes. The integrated liquid and dry configuration is the only analyzer to fully integrate both liquid and dry dispersion eliminating any manual hardware adjustments.
