Shimadzu Scientific Instruments has introduced the SALD-3101 Laser Diffraction Particle Size Analyzer designed for the measurement of coarse or dense particles with a variety of sampling options for both wet and dry samples. The new SALD-3101 is ideal for use in a variety of applications, including pharmaceuticals, metals, minerals, civil engineering and the environment. It covers a measuring range of 0.05 to 3000 µm using a single measurement principle, a single optical system, and a single light source. The sampler incorporates a powerful vertical radial pump with a flow rate of 5000 cubic centimeters per minute to reliably circulate a range of particle sizes from microns to several millimeters. The SALD-3101 can be equipped with the optional SALD-DS21 Injection Type Dry Measurement Unit for easy switching between wet and dry samples. Users can choose from three types of injection nozzles with different dispersion power and three types of sample sucking methods. Sucking devices include the turntable type for measurements that require large quantities of a sample, a one-shot type for measuring small quantities, and the handheld metering type with fine adjustment control.
