Whitehouse Scientific Launches Revolutionary PoreSizer System for Advanced Particle, Sieve Mesh and Filter Pore Measurement
Whitehouse Scientific, the highest ranking European certification laboratory for primary methods of particle size analysis, has launched its new PoreSizerTM system for image analysis.
The PoreSizerTM is a static image analysis system that measures particle size and shape, sieve meshes and filter pores using an optical microscope and high quality 1.4 megapixel camera. Specifically designed for the measurement of geometric pore sizes of filter media, the system is the culmination of a development programme spanning a number of years and provides a bespoke, transparent measurement process that is validated and fully traceable using certified reference standards.
The PoreSizerTM can display live video, analysis, measurement and setting all on a single screen, making it accessible and easy to use. Analysis can be tailored with numerous size and shape definitions, as well as logarithmic and linear graphs, number and volume analysis and outlier removal. Further features include: preformatted certificate templates for inclusion in reports; comparison of a multitude of data files or with other samples for reproducibility analysis; automatic online updates of the system; and a performance check workflow.
“We are thrilled that our advanced instrument, which has been years in the making, is making waves in the particle analysis market,” comments Dr. Graham Rideal, CEO at Whitehouse Scientific. “The PoreSizerTM pushes new boundaries in image analysis and allows an array of measurement options including geometric pore size, maximum aperture, aperture shape, wire diameter, wire count, open area, wire spacing, pore count and mesh cut point, to name a few. We are delighted that pre-sales have already been achieved in Japan and are expecting more and more interest as the product’s impressive features are communicated to the market.”
Incorporated within PoreSizerTM, the ShapeSizerTM function is the foundation for the creation, verification and certification of all Whitehouse Scientific glass microspheres reference standards and can measure thousands of particles in only a few minutes. The system can be purchased from the following distributors: Perometer bv (Belgium) and Meritics Ltd.
