CSR Cemental has installed their new Malvern Mastersizer 3000 particle sizing system. It will support the development of new fibre cement and lightweight composite solutions that can be used in construction from lightweight facades and innovative building solutions to novel feature walls. Particle size of the raw materials influence quality and performance of the end product. The Malvern Mastersizer 3000 with fast and reliable particle size distribution analysis enables monitoring of the ideal particle size for optimal product performance.
Imerys has recently installed their new Micromeritics Sedigraph system. Imerys is a world leading supplier of mineral-based specialty solutions for industry. The Sedigraph will help deliver high value-added functional solutions to a number of sectors from processing industries to consumer goods. Particle size distribution information will help to determine curing and bonding procedures, control pore structure, ensure adequate green body strength, and produce a final product of desired strength, texture, appearance, and density.
The University of Sydney, Research and Prototype Foundry (RPF) has been recently equipped with the next-generation Thermo Scientific Phenom XL G2 Desktop Scanning Electron Microscope. The easy-to-learn interface is ideal for a wide range of applications. The Phenom XL G2 features full-screen images and an average time-to image of just 40 seconds — three times faster than other desktop SEMs. The system offers the ability to analyse large samples up to 100 x 100 mm at a resolution of <10 nm. The desktop SEM is located at the Cleanroom entrance and is available in EZbooking.
Rosebank Engineering, an Australian sovereign defence and advanced manufacturing company, committed to precision engineering, aircraft sustainment and innovation, has installed their new desktop Phenom XL scanning electron microscope (SEM). Ideal for in-house quality control analyses of materials, it provides fast, easy-to-use, high-resolution (<10 nm) imaging to study surfaces. The energy-dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (EDS) detector can obtain more material insights with element identification via X-ray analysis.
The University of Sydney, School of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering has installed their new Theta Flex contact angle meter and Malvern Zetasizer Ultra, dynamic light scattering system. The Zetasizer delivers enhanced resolution, speed and ease-of-use for the measurement of particle and molecular size, particle charge and particle concentration. These capabilities are key to the group's research that spans food, environmental, biomolecular and cell engineering and chemical processes and innovation.
RMIT University recently installed their new Malvern NanoSight NS300. Using Nanoparticle Tracking Analysis NanoSight provides a fast and accurate way of looking at the behaviour of nanoparticles like extracellular vesicles within a biological medium. Malvern NanoSight NS300 provides high-resolution size distribution and concentration measurements for individual nanoparticles while a fluorescence mode allows differentiation of fluorescing particles.
