Five Compelling Reasons to Replace Sieve Analysis with Laser Diffraction
White Paper Oct 25, 2016
Sieving remains in use across the manufacturing industry due to its low cost, simplicity, and ability to measure relatively coarse particles up to several centimeters in size. However, the technique has pronounced drawbacks which make it unsuitable for supporting high productivity, modern manufacturing.
These disadvantages can be overcome by a move to laser diffraction technology, which delivers faster, simpler analysis along with a wider measurement range, better resolution and easier maintenance. Here we explain why a switch from sieving to laser diffraction should be a priority for manufacturers looking to optimize analytical productivity and increase efficiency.
