A Laser Particle Size Analyzer — Bettersizer 2600

Bettersize Instruments has introduced a robust and integrated laser particle size analyzer, called Bettersizer 2600, that performs robustly and offers consistent particle size measurement findings for both wet and dry dispersions that range from submicron to millimeters.

Driven by the innovative optical system and Standard Operation Procedure (SOP), the Bettersizer 2600 wet and dry particle size analyzer achieves a perfect balance between low maintenance, easy operation, high functionality, and profitability.
