Pi Portable: Full Featured Particle Size and Shape Analyzer

All analytical instrumentation is typically situated centrally in a Quality Control laboratory. This is often the case due to the complexity of the equipment and since it is not possible to locate such sensitive or high-quality analytical instrumentation in remote locations owing to transportation and environmental issues.

This drawback results in the need to collect samples in the field or plant and send them to the chief laboratory where they must stay until examined. As soon as the analysis is done, the results are analyzed and decisions can be made with regard to the process under analysis.

A delay ranging from several hours to several days could be expected. For certain samples, this delay can lead to changes in the formulation or condition of the sample, which makes the analysis not representative of what occurs in the field in real-time.

Pi Portable: The transportable analytical solution

Vision Analytical’s Pi Portable system is a full-featured particle size and shape analyzer that is provided in a strong case. It has been particularly designed as a suitcase-style system with wheels, allowing the high-resolution particle analyzer to be transported anywhere in a simple way. A portable system simplifies at-site analysis with remote abilities.

The system makes use of Dynamic Image Analysis as a direct measurement technique, which is being employed progressively as a Quality Control tool for raw materials in many industries.

The Pi Portable has been developed to work as a completely functioning Particle Size and Shape Analyzer. It can either be utilized in the laboratory, where high-quality data and easy usability are prerequisites, or closed and carried for remote use.
