XPT - Particle size and shape measurement by dynamic image analysis
Online measurement of particle size, shape and count. The flow-through cell system (XPT-C) uses a CCD Camera with extremely short shutter time for sharp images of fast moving particles. The advantage compared to traditionla laser diffraction measurement is that you see what you measure, get shape and number information, measure online and detect changes over time, detect single particles of different properties in thousands of other particles but of course you still can measure a simple size distribution
The XPT Software is used for all types of XPT units for automatic online image aquisition, particle size and shape analysis, trend display, storage of analysis methods, automatic saving of images and process integration.
The XPT-C systems with flow-through-cell for suspensions can be converted into powder measurement systems XPT-CP by simply echanging the measurement cell and adding the vibrating feeder. Other options are heated flow through cells for measurement of melts or polarized light for online distinction of crystalline and amorphous particles. For online powder applications XPT-CV systems with a venturi feeder sucks the sample through the measurement instrument and back to the process in a closed loop. The complete XPT-C system consists of stainless steel housing with camera and lighting system by high-power LED, flow-through cell, peristaltic pump, magnetic stirrer, PC and software.
