Cement particle sizing solutions for the automated lab

08 January 2013

Malvern Instruments has introduced a new robotic solution for cement analysis on the Mastersizer 3000 particle size analyser that enables its easy integration within an automated laboratory setting.

When used in combination with the Mastersizer 3000’s ceramic venturi, this new interface is said to deliver fully automated, repeatable measurement for all cement types, with little manual intervention or maintenance.
Performance tests confirm the generation of consistent high quality data with no sample cross-contamination.

The robotic solution integrates seamlessly with the Mastersizer 3000, using the analyser’s vibratory feeder. The funnel into which the sample is poured can be orientated to meet specific laboratory layouts and its closely defined geometry minimises the abrasive impact of the cement. Working together with the analyser’s ceramic venturi it can deliver fully dispersed sample to the measurement zone at an optimal and precisely controlled feed rate.

The Mastersizer 3000 is able to measure particle size across the range 0.01 to 3500 microns and is designed for maximum productivity.
