Overview

1)Fourier and Reverse Fourier Optical System
The Bettersizer 2600 is superior in the combination of Fourier and inverse Fourier designs. This smart design allows, on the one hand, the detection of scattered light in a very wide angular range from 0.016° to 165°. On the other hand, in contrast to the inverse Fourier design, the particles do not have to lie on one plane – the simultaneously accurate measurement of small and large particles is therefore achieved.

Features of the combination of Fourier and inverse Fourier design 

  • Spherical detector array: Forward, lateral and backward detectors in 92 pieces in total; 
  • Super large Fourier lens; 
  • Small footprint: Compact design to save space.


2)Intuitive and Powerful Software

  • Intuitive user interface and orderly operation
  • Real-time PSD curve for determining the optimal measurement conditions 
  • Fully automatic measurement routine 
  • Automatic cleaning routine 
  • Automatic data backup and highly customizable reports 
  • Direct conversion according to Fraunhofer and Mie evaluation models 
  • Switch between wet and dry dispersion modules with one click


3)Wet Dispersion
BT-802 is designed for particle size measurement with water as the medium. 

BT-802 is made up of an ABS shell. The components of it include a centrifugal pump, a peristaltic pump, an ultrasonic disperser, pinch valves, a control circuit, etc. The stirring speed is adjustable from 300 - 2500 r/min. The built-in ultrasonic system (50 W) helps weak agglomerates separate.
 

 
BT-80N is designed for particle size measurements with organic solvents as the media. BT-80N is suitable for common organic solvents, for example:

  Ethanol   Methanol   Isopropanol   Ether
  Toluene   Xylene   Dichloromethane   Octane
  Ethyl acetate   Acetone   Methyl oleate   NMP solvents

BT-80N is made up of stainless steel shell. The components of it include a centrifugal pump, an ultrasonic disperser, a PTFE pipeline, a sintered-quartz sample cell, a control circuit, etc.

Bettersizer 2600 BT-80N
BT-804 is designed for valuable or small-volume sample measurements, where the medium is solvent or water. The module consists of an ABS shell, a stirring motor, a cuvette (8 ml), a stirrer, etc. 
  • Maximum volume in 8 mL with samples mass in 0.005 - 0.1 g. 
  • Suitable for samples dispersed in water or organic phase.

 

4)Dry Dispersion 
BT-902 is suitable for dry powder measurements. The gas used can be compressed air, nitrogen or other noble gases.
BT-902 is made up of an electromagnetic vibration feeder, a venturi pipe, a gas circuit, an electric circuit, a pressure sensor, etc.

BT-903 is designed for particle size measurements of valuable and small amounts of dry powders with a minimum sample volume of 20 mg.
Bettersizer 2600 BT-903
BT-903 is composed of a venturi pipe, a gas circuit, an electric circuit, a sample tube, etc.
