06.02.2023 3D particle analysis reveals “true” morphology

Microtrac has introduced a new generation of image analyser into its Camsizer series: The Camsizer 3D.

The analyser provides innovation in particle characterization with a true three-dimensional measurement of the sample. The Camsizer 3D offers a "particle tracking" function: two cameras capture several individual images of different orientations of the same particle as it moves through the measurement zone.

This technology ensures that the true size and shape values are recorded. In particular for the length measurement of stretched particles (e. g. extrudates) this is an important advantage compared to conventional 2D particle analysis, where the particles are captured in arbitrary orientation and do not show their "true" length. Moreover, the 3D method offers significantly better accuracy for detecting defective or broken particles.

The dual camera system enables a wide measuring range from 20 µm to 30 mm. Camsizer 3D offers analysis of dry, free-flowing bulk materials for both quality control and for research applications.
