LIXELL is a very flexible wet dispersion system which can easily be adapted to nearly all types of applications. Its basic construction comprises an open loop flow cell with inlet and outlet connector. Cuvettes with different optical path lengths are available. They can be easily exchanged, while the used cuvette type is automatically identified by wireless RFID technology.
The cuvette position is controlled along the optical axis by software at high precision. For image analysis this function is used as auto-focus on the measured particles, i.e. the WINDOX software ensures, that the particles are always imaged at the maximum sharpness. The cuvette is designed to operate at up to 3 bar and up to 80°C.
Inlet and outlet hoses are led through the LIXELL front cover and thus enable a horizontal hose routing towards the main wet dosing unit LIQXI. In this way, segregation of particles within the pumped sample circuit is reduced to a minimum. Depending on the application the user may provide other dosing units, a pump, a manually operated syringe (for sample volumes down to 20 ml), an external basin, a sonication stage, a fill or drain container etc.
