The SHIMADZU SAKD-2300 Particle Analyzer can be used for a wide variety of applications, with the number of possible applications even larger when optional units and application software packages are taken into account. The particle sizes that can be measured by this system are in the range from 17 nanometers to 2500 micrometers for wet measurement. Sample amounts can be from 15 microliters to 300 milliliters.
Particle size distributions can be measured in concentrations on the order of 0.1 part per million. Measurements are accomplished by use of a laser diffraction technique, with a 680 nm red laser used as the light source. A total of 84 elements are used in the UV range as light detectors. The actual measurement range is a function of the shape of the particle under investigation.
1. Wide applicability
Using the SALD-MS23 sampler, the measurement range is 17nm to 2500μm for wet measurement.
For example, PSL particles with a median diameter of 50nm and stainless balls with a diameter of 2mm can be measured by a single analyzer.
Various sample amounts (Suspension) can be selected according to measurement objects and purposes.
Sample amount for SALD-MS23 is variable: 100mL, 200mL, or 300mL.
Sample amount for batch cell SALD-BC23 is 12mL.
In the case of high-concentration sample measurement system SALD-HC23, optional indentation can be used for sample amounts ranging from 15μL to 150μL.
