Mettler Toledo has announced the G400 and G600, the next generation of focused beam reflectance measurement (FBRM) instruments for in-process particle measurement.
The FBRM G series has been redesigned to make it easier to understand, optimise and control particle and droplet distributions in real time.
According to Mettler Toledo, advanced digital signal processing provides more accurate chord-length distributions relative to both inline and offline microscopy.
In turn, this creates improved sensitivity over a wider range of process concentrations.
The company claims that stuck particle correction provides reliable measurements.
G Series models are designed to be compact, portable and ergonomic, with a small footprint that makes them suitable for laboratory use.
With new interchangeable designs, probes provide maximum versatility and offer real-time measurement in vessels from less than 50mL to greater than 20,000 litres.
FBRM G400 facilitates laboratory research and development, enabling the real-time optimisation of processes such as crystallisation, wet milling and suspension/emulsion homogenisation without sampling.
FBRM G600 is designed for laboratory-scale use in vessels larger than 2 litres.
Additionally, the established Ic FBRM particle characterisation software delivers key information to help users to develop a strong understanding of their particle system dynamics, optimise experimental design, speed development time and quickly identify and solve production issues.
