Analyzer measures fines and dust particles in accordance with the new ASTM Standard
The fundamental principal used by the analyzer is based on the condition that the unwanted dust and fines will normally adhere to the larger pellets and will be removed by rinsing the test sample with a liquid (preferably demineralized water). This causes the fines and dust in the sample to wash away to the beaker below. These particles are then poured into the filter collection unit, separating the fines from the water. The weight of the filter paper is very accurately measured before and after the collection process, and this weight is used to calculate the PPM of the sample. The wet analysis quantifies the amounts of dust with particle sizes from 1.6 to 500 microns. The FineAlyzer™ is available from Pelletron as a complete unit, in accordance with CE regulations. Pelletron provides free-of-charge DeDusting tests,including a dry and wet test analysis, presented in an electronic report format.
