Xoptix IntelliSizers automatically sample your process flow to deliver fast, reliable particle size analyses.  Using the same technology as laboratory laser diffraction analyzers, IntelliSizer PSD data is reported in real time, as often as once per second.  Proprietary software enables the IntelliSizer to present results in a form that emulates your existing laboratory analysis methods such as laser diffraction, X-ray sedimentation or even sieve analysis.  You can even use Xoptix results to automatically adjust process parameters to keep particle sizes within spec.  Xoptix analyzers have been proven reliable in a wide range of applications:

  • for particle sizes from 0.5 microns to 1mm
  • can sample from gravity or pneumatic flows
  • available with industrial, food or pharmaceutical grade construction 


So think about it, which method would you rather use to monitor your process?


The old way:

  1. Manually take a sample…and hope the sampling is done correctly
  2. Label the sample container…"dang, this Sharpie won’t write!”
  3. Walk the sample to the lab…"sure thing, right after my lunch break"
  4. Put the sample in the lab queue…”take a number!”
  5. Split out a representative sample in the amount necessary for analysis…”hmmm, yep that looks about right”
  6. Run the sample through the analyzer…and then wait...and then wait some more... 


The Xoptix way:

  1. View the latest PSD on your PC screen.
  2. Wait one second.
  3. Repeat step 1.


The answer is easy: Xoptix!
