Image analysis technology for liquid applications: particles counting, particles size and shape characterisation. The liquid flow generated by a membrane pump.

Instrument Overview

Specially developed for liquid applications when sample volume exceeds 30ml. It is an extremely flexible instrument, delivered with an external stainless steel beaker which includes overhead stirring (standard configuration). For particular applications, it could also be directly connected to a glass beaker or inside a polymerisation or crystallization reactor. Sample flow is generated by an integrated membrane pump.

The operating procedure includes information on sample quantity, volume sampling and numbers of analysed particles. As in all the Occhio wet dispersion instruments, the flowcell core is supplied with different spacer thicknesses. The choice of an appropriate spacer delivers you sharper image and reduces sample dilution, which improves the reliability of the measurement.

With Occhio FC200M you can measure:
  • Particle size
  • Particle shape
  • Particle concentration (particle counting)
  • Particle transparency

Data and images of every single particle are stored in an Occhio binary database. The instrument is driven by Callisto software, which controls the entire analysis: SOP, statistic, reporting and data storage.
