optical particle size analyzer / digital image processing
optical, digital image processing
ABT-1600 image particle analysis system is a multifunctional unit including testing options for image distribution test and particle shape analysis. Integrating traditional microscopy and advanced image processing technology, this unit consists of an optical microscope, CCD camera, image acquisition system, computer, printer, and software. The basic operation is performed by capturing the image in microscope using a special camera, then transmitting the image obtained to the computer through a proprietary image acquisition system. After performing the image capture, the image is processed and analyzed using specialized particle size analysis software. Finally results are output through the monitor and printer. Samples are characterized by direct-image, direct-view, accuracy, broader range, automatic recognition, statistics and quantification. In addition to examining the shape of the particle, it gives particle size distribution and the ratio of length to diameter (L/D) among other things; creating a new method for particle size testing in scientific research and production fields.
