In dynamic image analysis for the measurement and characterization of particles, the product is fed and mixed using compressed air. In this process, particle size and particle shape of powders, granulates and suspensions are measured. The compressed air station from Dürr Technik meets the scalable compressed air requirements thanks to the various configuration variants. Our laboratory compressor can thus be used for particle measuring devices from Sympatec, Retsch Technology and Fritsch.
Dürr Technik has been the specialist for oil-free laboratory compressors for over 40 years.
Thanks to our many years of experience, we are able to give you qualified advice right from the start and ensure that you remain satisfied even after the purchase.
Oil-free compressed air is also used in the analysis method of the spectroscopy. Using a spectroscope, light is broken down into its spectrum and can be examined visually. Depending on the analysis, different combustion or oxidation gases are used. The most important oxidation gas is compressed air. There are many different areas of application, for example, atomic absorption spectrometers (AAS) are used for element determination or Therahetz spectrometers detect and control properties of matter with electromagnetic fields.
Rheometers are used to determine the deformation and flow behaviour of matter. The most important measurable properties include viscoelasticity, flow behavior, thixotropy, ductile viscosity, creep behavior and creep recovery as well as processing relevant parameters such as extrudate swells and melt fracture. Constant compressed air of an appropriate quality is required for the air bearings of the drive motor of a rheometer. The oil-free laboratory compressor SICOLAB from Dürr Technik has proven itself here. Thanks to the integrated membrane drying system and the integrated fine filter, the laboratory compressor produces clean compressed air. Thus our SICOLAB series can be used optimally for the rheometer series MCR of Anton Paar as compressed air source for their bearings.
