Particle size monitor

Tuesday, 25 October, 2005 | Supplied by:

The Aello probe monitors particle size and/or concentration in industrial processes. The probes are able to provide an index figure which will give an immediate indication of changes in particle size and/or concentration in liquid suspensions and emulsions.

Systems are available for particles from about 60 nm up to about 5 mm, in concentrations up to 40%, so they are suitable for a wide range of industrial processes as a quality control tool.

The systems are able to provide more accurate data than turbidity, which is related to both particle size and concentration. With the probes, these functions are independent, so the index figures are more closely related to the process status than turbidity approximations.

The systems are useful for monitoring steady state processes like emulsions, grinding and polishing circuits, lubricants and other processes.

They can also monitor kinetic processes, like crystallisation, polymerisation and nucleation.

Agglomeration, flocculation and creaming can give rise to changes in particle size and/or concentration, so these systems are suitable as a first point monitor for observing the presence of any such changes.
