SDTech gets Malvern onboard

25 March 2009

Malvern Instruments has joined forces with an industrial process optimisation specialist, SDTech. Under terms of a recent agreement Malvern’s Insitec Voyager mobile on-line particle size analyser will be used in SDTech’s in-house test facility and on customer sites as part of the company’s consultancy process.

Malvern process specialists will supply technical and applications expertise, working closely with SDTech, a company that deals primarily in custom micronisation and the analysis of fine and ultra-fine powders. As a result, clients using these services will have access to milling and particle size analysis specialists.

As manufacturers face increasing pressure to optimise processes, Oliver Schmitt, business line manager for process systems at Malvern, says the collaboration to offer significant benefits. ‘SDTech’s knowledge and experience in the micronisation of powders fits perfectly with Malvern’s particle characterisation capabilities and expertise. Our process systems are used in those industries that SDTech serves and with the advent of the mobile Insitec Voyager Malvern also offers a consultancy package for particle sizing. By incorporating the Voyager into appropriate SDTech projects, clients will receive a truly comprehensive service.’

Dr Jalil Benabdillah, CEO of SDTech said: ‘SDTech is using the Insitec Voyager on its own production lines, working towards total quality control. For audits on customer sites we can now combine Malvern and SDTech advanced technology and expertise.’

Malvern’s Insitec Voyager is a laser diffraction-based particle size analyser for dry streams with particles in the size range 0.1 - 1000 microns designed specifically for mobile particle size analysis within the process environment. Measuring particle size up to four times per second, Insitec Voyager provides a continuous stream of real-time data.
