Applications

Detect Process Upsets With In-Process Video Microscopy
PVM Detects Process Upsets

PVM© technology can be used to detect the presence of unexpected polymorphs, even at concentrations below the detection limits of Raman or offline microscopy. By imaging thousands of particles per second, trace polymorph detection is possible where morphology changes exists.

Flocculation
Develop a Flocculation Process With Control of the Particle Distribution

Flocculation is a common separation technique in the biotechnology, petroleum, pulp and paper, and mining industries. Performance of flocculation polymers and chemicals depends on the incoming particle size distribution, solids concentration, mixing efficiency, additive type and dosage. Flocculation effectiveness influences downstream separation, settling, flotation, and purification.

Validating FBRM® with in-process video microscopy
PVM® validates FBRM® results by linking time points with size and shape information

Liquid-Liquid Dispersions
Determine Impact of Process Variables

Liquid-liquid dispersions, or emulsions, are an excellent application for in situ droplet size measurement; sampling these systems for offline analysis can be unrepresentative as the sample can change by the time you measure it offine.

Solids and Droplets in Crude Oil
Optimizing Flow Assurance and Separations in the Petroleum Industry Using In-Process Particle and Droplet Processing

Flow assurance and multi-phase separations are critical unit operations in oil and gas production and transport. In-process particle size, shape, and count data are used to understand and predict problems associated with particle precipitation, growth, or agglomeration leading to pipeline fouling or blockage.

Real-Time Characterization of Complex Multiphase Particle and Droplet Systems
Monitor and Measure Particles and Droplets In Process and In Real Time

The handling and processing of suspensions and emulsions is critical. Multiphase systems tend to be complex with many parameters, including overall process efficiency and economic profitability, be­ing directly affected by the ability to consistently deal with the production, separation, and/or removal of solid particles and liquid droplets in suspension.
