Emulsion Characteristic Analyzer ( ECA )

The ECA- sensor allows the measurement of size changes in original formulations of suspensions and emulsions under insitu conditions with a minimum distance of 1 µsec to the next measurement event between two droplets.

SpecificationMeasuring range:
<2 - <75 µmTemperature range: 5°C - 125°CPressure range: 3 - 6 barSensor: 18 mm Advantages

Insitu therefore no time-consuming sampling and preparation Time-saving for the development of new products Real results due to measurement in original concentration Sensor can be switched off and sterilized Continuous measurement over 24h / 365 days a year


The measured data are available in the form of graphs or tables. The display can be a cumulative curve or a trend diagram.


Insitu Video Microscope ( IVM )

The IVM provides in-process real-time microscope-quality images and, in conjunction with PIA software, shape and size evaluation.
