Since travel protocols prevented us from personally exhibiting at the 2022 World of Concrete, visitors to our booth can watch the below 1 minute video to get an idea of how the Xoptix IntelliSizer works. Using the same technology as laboratory laser diffraction analyzers, the IntelliSizer automatically extracts a small sample of cement from the process flow as often as once per second and immediately delivers a complete particle size distribution. Measuring particle sizes from 0.1 microns to 1mm, and capable of sampling from flows of up to 300t/h, Xoptix instruments have demonstrated their value with over 150 successful installations in cement plants around the world. Special PSD output modes include both sieve and Blaine fineness emulation. The instant feedback provided by the IntelliSizer allows operators to see the effects of process adjustments in real time, enabling milling system optimization that delivers higher product quality and reduces per-ton energy cost.
One quick note: the manual ball valve shown opening at the beginning of the video is for maintenance only and would normally remain open. In that condition all sampling, whether continuous or intermittent, is controlled automatically by the IntelliSizer.
