Laser Particle Counting
The Microtrac S3500 is a laser diffraction particle size analyzer that uses three precisely placed red laser diodes to accurately characterize particles. The patented Tri-Laser System provides Mereco with accurate, reliable and repeatable particle size analysis for a diverse range of applications by utilizing the proven theory of Mie* compensation for spherical particles and the proprietary principle of Modified Mie* calculations for non-spherical particles. The S3500 measures particle size from 0.02 to 2800 microns. Mereco uses the instrument for incoming and in-process quality control of mineral fillers.
*"Mie Theory" describes the effect of spherical particle slopes on light.
