Particle Analysis with the New Camsizer® ? a Success Story is Continued

Nov 10 2006 Read 1407 Times

In 1999 the CAMSIZER was introduced into the market by Retsch as one of the first systems using dynamic image analysis for particle size and shape analysis. Today, several hundred instruments worldwide are used successfully for applications such as plastics, sand, fertilizer, food, pharmaceuticals and many other granulates.

The latest developments in camera and light source technology have been integrated into the new CAMSIZER which was presented at Achema 2006 for the first time.
The new features at a glance:
? New optics with 100% higher resolution and extreme depth of sharpness allow for even better size and shape analysis throughout the entire size range
? Optimized, process-oriented software in various languages
? Excellent compatibility to sieve analysis thanks to newly developed fitting algorithms

The CCD cameras in the new CAMSIZER now operate with a 100% higher resolution which means that more than 45 megapixels are measured per second. The intensity of the new LED-stroboscope light source is 20 times higher than that of the light source of the predecessor. Extremely short exposure times allow for pin sharp images. The new CAMSIZER provides an excellent resolution over the complete measuring range from 30 µm to 30 mm.

The CAMSIZER provides measuring results which are 100% compatible to those of traditional sieve analysis, regardless if the size distribution is close, wide or multi-modal. Moreover, it offers some important advantages such as additional information about particle shape and storage of the measuring results in up to 1,000 size classes. A higher throughput and the reduced amount of work and time needed makes particle analysis with the CAMSIZER highly cost-effective.
