Monitors and quantifies
the effects of process variables on your dispersed system
to improve process efficiency and product quality of emulsification, crystallization, polymerization, precipitation, dissolution, and homogenization processes
|The optical sensor consists of a pulsed near-infrared
light source and two synchronous detectors:
° The transmission detector monitors light transmitted through the product;
° The backscattering detector receives light backscattered by the product.
The optical sensors acquire
|transmission and backscattering signals as fast as every 0.1 seconds (0.1 to 10 seconds) and these signals are digitized by a current to voltage converter. The results are then displayed by the Turbiscan OL software indicating real time changes in transmission and backscattering intensities.|
l & l* mean path length of photons in the dispersion (in mm)
The backscattered (BS) and transmitted (T) light
fluxes measured by the optical sensors change with the mean path length of photons
in the dispersion:
l (for transmission) and l* (for backscattering).
These physical characterization parameters are directly related to particle diameter (d) and volume fraction (F)
