Xoptix releases XO in-process particle sizer

Published by
World Cement,

Xoptix are continuously looking for new ways to optimise powder production and save money on processes. It is working with organisations across the globe on energy savings through effective in-process particle size analysis.

In-process particle sizing can dramatically reduce energy costs as milling and size reduction machinery can be optimised with real-time particle size analysis. This allows subtle changes to classifier speed or product feed to become instantly visible, with particle size distribution used as an indicator to achieve the required specification while avoiding over-milling, which wastes electricity.

Stuart Barton, industry specialist in particle size analysis at Xoptix says, “If you have a true insight into the particle size distribution of your process you can quickly make changes that can save you money. Many of our customers have never experienced the benefits of real-time analysis until the installation of our XO in-process particle sizer and the control that it gives over a process is a huge leap forward! Energy savings can be seen from day one, as process machinery can be fine-tuned to give optimum performance. Helping companies save money and reduce their carbon footprint has always been a key focus for us”.

The XO in-process particle sizer can monitor particles from 0.1 – 3000 micron, 2000 times a second, directly from the process line. It is simple install and easy to use. It boasts laser diffraction technology and unique sensors with a robust enclosure. This sizer can be used for a diverse range of process applications, including cement, pharmaceutical, oil and calcium carbonate. The dedicated team of application specialists based in Worcestershire UK, work with organisations at all levels to deliver bespoke process efficiency solutions that save money.
