Cilas' patented design provides customers with an integrated liquid and dry dispersion system. The transition from liquid to dry dispersion modes is accomplished via software with one click of the mouse. Our unique design eliminates the need for the operator to swap hardware when switching modes.  This also eliminates the need to realign and revalidate the analyzer when switching between dispersion modes.

All Cilas systems can be configured for liquid dispersion (Ecosizer, 990L, 1090L, and 1190L), dry dispersion (990D, 1090D, and 1190D) or liquid and dry dispersion (990LD, 1090LD, and 1190LD), based on customer need.

Companies manufacture a wide range of particles.  When they want to analyze particle size, there are two available techniques, liquid dispersion or dry dispersion.  Ideally the best choice for particle size measurement is liquid dispersion.  This mode allows the user to select internal ultrasonics, stirring or the pump to break up any agglomerates.  Water, alcohol  or other solvents can be used in liquid dispersion mode.

If a particle is soluble in water or reacts with water, customers can choose to run the sample in dry dispersion.  This avoids using water or any other solvent.  Other samples that might not distribute well in a solvent are best run in dry mode.  Using Cilas' new dry jet dispersion technique, the pressure required to disperse powders is low, which means deagglomeration can be achieved without breaking particles.

Cilas application specialists can help our users decide whether liquid or dry dispersion is best for their samples.
