The LS 13 320 SW offers an easy to use system, producing fast and reliable particle size analysis results for dry, aqueous and non-aqueous samples.

The LS 13 320 SW Utilizes Unique Systems

The LS 13 320 SW particle size analyzer is one of the most capable and sophisticated particle size analyzers available on the commercial market today. In fact, many of the sub-systems are unique, e.g. the Beckman Coulter exclusive, polarization intensity differential scattering (PIDS) technology and the Tornado dry powder dispersing system. The LS 13 320 SW uses reverse Fourier optics incorporated in a fiber optic spatial filter system and a binocular lens system. This enables the LS 13 320 SW to optimize light scattering measurement across the widest dynamic range, from 0.4µm to 2000 µm, in a single scan with no extrapolation.

The LS 13 320 SW Delivers Excellent Data Reproducibility

Reproducibility is one of the most important factors in laser diffraction particle size analysis. Tighter product specs allow manufacturers of bulk and particulate materials to have a higher quality product. And while the industry standard for reproducibility is 2%-4% under ideal conditions, the LS 13 320 SW, typically, has better than 1% reproducibility.

Standard Operating Procedures and Methods (SOP's & SOM's)

The easy creation of SOP's allows the standardization of analysis methods and the reporting of results. The use of SOP's guarantee consistency and uniformity regardless of the number of applications, operators, instruments and locations involved and ensure your analyses are the same run after run by using the advanced SOP routine. Every element of the analysis from method set-up to the final printout can be locked into a user definable SOP. The SOM covers all those aspects of the analysis relating to the instrument settings. These files can be e-mailed to other users ensuring conformance and harmony regardless of location.
