Malvern Mastersizer 2000

Malvern Mastersizer 2000 with large volume sample dispersion unit - Hydro 200MU

  • Particle Size Distribution by laser diffraction.
  • Operates on the principle that partilces passing through a laser beam will scatter light at an angle that can be directly related to their size. This method is effective under the assumption that all particles being analysed are of a spherical morphology.
  • Limitations of this method include: particle sizes < 1┬Ám ; non-spherical particles and materials with a low refractive index with respect to the dispersive medium.
  • For the measurement of emulsions, suspensions and dry powders.
  • Solutions usually in the order of 1 %w/v
