To measure the kinetics of solid/liquid separation


We use one of two methods…

  • Centrifugal force to accelerate settling of slow or small sample volumes
  • Gravitational settling with temperature control

… or we could just use a measuring cylinder, a ruler and a litre of sample!

Our systems clearly define settling regions caused by differences in particle size and density providing an instant picture as to the solid/liquid separation characteristics of the sample.

Data from these techniques will provide information on:

  • Emulsion/suspension stability
  • Foams
  • Sedimentation
  • Shelf life
  • Sludges and slurries
