CSIRO's Food Innovation Centre for Industry has recently installed their new Malvern Mastersizer 3000 that will be used to study particle size and size distribution of various foods and additives. Particle size defines mouth feel and is important for controlling manufacturing costs. With a dynamic size range spanning 0.01 to 3500 microns combined with robust wet and dry particle size measurements and intuitive software the Mastersizer is designed to ease user workload which has resulted to its enduring appeal and propelled the system as the unit of choice.
PHENOM DESKTOP SEM
Bluescope Steel in Melbourne, Victoria have installed their new Phenom ProX SEM that will allow the team to investigate steel quality and allow users to control and detect inclusion (oxides) development, an undesirable consequence during liquid steel processing which can lead to extremely poor mechanical properties.
Malvern Mastersizer 3000
University of Wollongong. School of Civil, Mining and Environmental Engineering, have installed their new Malvern Mastersizer 3000. The Malvern Mastersizer 3000 is a versatile easy to use particle size analyser that is fast and accurate for both wet and dry dispersions including fragile and cohesive dry powders.
Phenom desktop SEM
The University of Wollongong, School of Earth and Environmental Sciences has installed their new desktop Phenom XL SEM that will allow researchers to zoom in on geological, environmental and archaeological materials with up to 100,000 times magnification (<14 nm resolution). The Phenom XL has a large sample stage, allowing users to analyse samples up to 10 cm x 10 cm in area and determine elemental composition using the fully integrated Energy Dispersive Spectrometer (EDS).
Malvern NanoSight NS300
University of Melbourne, Materials Characterisation and Fabrication Platform, has recently installed their Malvern NanoSight and is available for analysis via their online booking system
