The measurement of particle size using laser light diffraction
Starting from 2014. “Termika a.d.” Zrenjanin with backup from Institute of tehnical sciences of the Serbian Academy of Arts and Sciences will be performing quality control of its products, with extra filtration means (Perfit-a) using laser light diffraction.
Particle size analysis can be performed using an apparatus Mastersizer2000 of company Malvern Instruments. Optical system Mastersizer2000 (optical bench) is the first device of this type which can continuously detect the diffracted light from 0.01° to 130°. This system may be characterized in a particle size distribution of a wide range of 0.02 µm to 2000 µm, without further changing lenses and additional processing results. For each of the Perfit's analysis of a composite sample of a production cycle, customers are enabled accurate record of particle size distribution supplied their filtration means.
