iSpect DIA-10 Dynamic Image Particle Size and Shape Analyzer
Evaluation of Rough Particles in Paint by Image Analysis
In the paint industry, it is important for pigment particles to be uniform to ensure that the paint has an even finish. The presence of foreign matter or rough particles in pigments can lead to quality issues. Through image analysis, particles with high surface roughness can be clearly detected and distinguished from smoother particles.
Detection of Coarse Particles in Lithium Ion Battery (LIB) Cathode Material
Coarse particles in powder used for LIB cathodes can lead to performance issues and degradation of the material. These particles can be detected and distinguished either through the image analysis window or a plot based on specific parameters. This allows the quality of the powdered raw material to be easily verified.
Evaluation of Particles in Cleaning Solutions for Metal Parts
The waste produced after cleaning metal parts can contain insoluble particles that were not in the original cleaning solution. By measuring the insoluble particle concentration after metal components have been cleaned, the degree of contamination as well as potential environmental impact can be observed.
Evaluation of Foreign Matter in Paints by Image Analysis
–Enables Measurement of Colored Liquid and Reduces Solvent Usage
Particle images of latex particles in even dark, colored liquids can be obtained due to the short optical path length (120 μm).
Particle Evaluation of Emulsions
Particle uniformity is important for the quality of emulsions. It is affected by stirring and emulsification methods. The iSpect DIA-10 can check particle size, particle shape, and particle concentration to demonstrate the quality of emulsions in a single measurement.
Evaluation of Paint Particles Dispersed in Organic Solvent
Toluene and methyl ethyl ketones (MEK) are typically used as solvents for paints. Since the system is resistant to most organic solvents, including toluene and MEK, particle size and shape analyses of oil-based paints are possible. The amount of waste is also minimized because of the small sample volume required for measurement.
