Particle size analysis for suspensions and emulsions from 0.25 µm to 3,500 µm with small amounts of precious or active substances
With the long optical bench, the HELOS/KR laser diffraction sensor covers a particularly wide particle range. In combination with the stationary CUVETTE 50 it demonstrates its full strengths in wet measurements of small amounts of finely to coarsely dispersed samples with particle sizes in the range from 0.25 µm to 3,500 µm. Typical applications involve substances that are very complex to manufacture and are therefore valuable and hence only available in small quantities. Due to their active or toxic properties, special sample handling is often required, and measurements need to be managed with very low particle concentrations.
The geometry of the 50 ml stationary cuvette produces a long optical path for the laser beam (over 20 mm) in the sample liquid, thereby enabling the optimum concentration for reliable measurements – even with low sample concentrations. The titanium finger of the highly-efficient sonotrode can be manually lowered into the cuvette as required. The energy input for the dispersion can be precisely controlled by the software. The necessary homogenisation of the sample during the measurement is achieved with the aid of a PTFE-coated magnetic stirrer with adjustable speed.
The cuvette consists of high-grade optical glass and all joints are sintered, so it is extremely chemically resistant and suitable for most dispersing liquids. Potential contamination of the sample is effectively prevented, as a result of which complete recovery and reuse of the sample in its original state is possible even after the measurement. The stationary cuvette also promotes simple and safe filling and makes cleaning effortless.
The module carrier can be easily pulled out to the front and thus allows a smooth change of the cuvette. When open, the hinged housing allows visual control of the dispersion as well as safe measuring operation due to increased laser protection when the cover is closed.
