Particle Measurement Systems
At-line & Inline particle size and concentration
Our at-line and inline particle measurement systems is one of the first series of at-line and inline sensors to continuously monitor the particle size and concentration in real time. This label-free and nondestructive measurement technique allows to follow-up various processes including
- mixing / blending,
- wet milling (grinding),
- dispersing, and
- emulsifying processes.
These are currently evaluated via a trial-and-error approach. The newly-developed technology has unique properties which allows to evaluate highly-concentrated samples without any preparation steps. Consequently, the analysis time is significantly reduced, personnel costs go down and manual errors are eliminated.
At-line particle measurement systems
The at-line measurement systems can be used in the lab or at the production line. In contrast to conventional lab measurements, this at-line version handles highly-concentrated samples and doesn’t require any sample preparation.
Inline particle measurement systems
The inline particle measurement systems can be easily installed in new or existing wet milling (grinding), dispersing, emulsifying, homogenization or emulsification equipment. The system can be integrated by connecting the customizable tubing to the inlet and outlet of the system.

Artificial Intelligence and Web Interface
The acquired sensor data are fed to our AI-algorithms which provides reliable process information about the various mixing and milling processes. This type of intelligent sensing facilitates automatic process regulation and optimization. Depending on the application, our sensors can be combined with other sensing modalities to provide a complete image of the process.
The web interface is used to visualize the processed data and manage the device settings for different products. The software supports Modbus TCP/IP direct communication with PLC units for automatic process control.
