State of the Art Sampling Systems:

  • Wet Measurement: Sample-to-sample analysis in less than 60 secondsThe HORIBA LA-960V2 wet circulation system is an easy, fast and very powerful dispersion system. The standard wet system offers a full package of a dispersant fill pump, liquid level sensor, circulation pump, 30 W in-line ultrasonic probe, and drain valve, which is all software-controlled for true one-button operation. This advanced design provides highly reproducible particle size results.
  • Dry Measurement: Automated, powerful dry-powder dispersion

    LA-960V2: Particle Size Distribution Analyzer
    The LA-960V2 PowderJet combines several unique and patented features to provide the most reproducible dry measurements. Use the Auto Measurement function to control vacuum, air pressure, powder flow, start/stop conditions, measurement duration, and data processing. Designed to handle every application including small sample amounts, friable powders, and highly agglomerated materials.

    • Smart Scans – Trigger function
      This function allows for very precious materials to be measured accurately. When the sample amount is limited or low flow ability, the Trigger functions perfectly to start and stop the measurement.
    • Self-Adjusting Powder Flow
      Historically, the biggest challenge in dry powder measurement involved establishing an even powder flow. The LA-960V2 PowderJet has solved that challenge with a self-adjusting feedback loop to maintain a constant laser transmittance. This is a crucial factor in creating reliable, reproducible dry powder size measurements.
