A unique combination of technologies based on Laser Obscuration Time and sophisticated Dynamic Shape Analysis.

Accurate analysis and characterization of spherical, non-spherical and elongated   particles.

Simultaneous results of Particle Size, Concentration and Shape.

Modular design for a range of dry and wet applications.

Real-time visualization of the sample during operation.

Combined LASER and VIDEO channel


The concept DIPA 2000:


The best of both worlds:

Fast and accurate Particle Size analysis with unique Laser Obscuration technique.

Accurate description of non spherical materials with sophisticated Dynamic Image Analysis.

The measurement relates solely and directly to the particle size.

Results are independent of physical or optical properties of the particles or medium.
