Laser particle size analyzer

The ANALYSETTE 22 NanoTec is the ideal laser particle size analyser for determining particle size distributions of powders, suspended solids and emulsions. The device is suited for quality control and process control, as well as research and development.

Specification

  • 2 lasers : green (λ=532nm, 7mW) and infrared (λ=850nm, 15mW) linearly polarised
  • 2 Possibilites of measurement : dry and wet measurements
  • 3 different ranges of measurement : fine range (0.01µm to 40µm), coarse range (40µm to 2100µm) and full range (0.01µm to 2100µm)
  • ultrasounds and pump speed variation are available
  • Calculation by Frauenhofer or Mie

Pycnometer

The AccuPyc II 1345 Series Pycnometers are fast, fully automatic pycnometers that provide high-speed, high-precision volume measurements and true density calculations on a wide variety of powders, solids, and slurries. After analyses are started with a few keystrokes, data are collected, calculations are performed, and results displayed.

BET Surface Area Analysis

Micromeritics’ Gemini VII 2390t of surface area analyzers rapidly and reliably produces accurate and repeatable surface area and porosity results. Their low cost, speed, simplicity of use, reliability, and ruggedness have earned the Gemini a place in laboratories worldwide as an essential tool in research and quality control environments.

It determines single and multipoint BET and Langmuir surface areas, total pore volume, and micropore analysis by the t-method.

Solar simulator

This equipment, the HAL-320 solar simulator is a compact equipment which gives a high approximation of the solar spectrum with AM1.5G. It is composed of a compact xenon lamp (300W), an optical block diagram, an optical fiber to guide the light and an optical collimator to give an irradiance of 1 Sun (100mW / cm2) in the spectral range of (350-1100nm). A controller accessory can also check the irradiance area.The very good irradiance uniformity below 2% is limited for the 30x30mm irradiance zone.

This equipment can be used for research topics related to solar cells and photocatalysts. Morever, this simulator is linked to the photoectrochemical measurement system to constitute an electro-optical characterization bench.
