System overview

The SA20 Series Particle Analysis system (PMS 5200 and PCMB inclusive) provides stationary or portable particle size and/or distribution analysis. Systems include dilution control and flush mechanisms to maintain uptime and accuracy. Flush features can support either DI or chemical flush media. Configurations may contain a single or dual laser sensor. Stationary systems can be configured to provide output to dedicated PC or to the integrated IPC in an SBD tool.

A dedicated system specifically designed for large particle sizing (LPC) is also available providing size, quantity, and distribution of all process streams with no dilution required. As an LPC device, it will provide accurate readings for particles of 1 micron and larger.

These systems can assist in monitoring:

  • raw material, batch to batch changes
  • filter performance
  • long-term batch degradation
  • other operating performance parameters.
