Innovation Award 2008 – FRITSCH. ONE STEP AHEAD.

The FRITSCH Laser Particle Sizer ANALYSETTE 22 NanoTec was awarded

Idar-Oberstein, (PresseBox) - Again FRITSCH was recognized with the Innovation Award: Already in 2007 the FRITSCH Planetary Ball Mill PULVERISETTE 7 premium line was successful in the nano technology category. This year the jury honoured the FRITSCH Laser Particle Sizer ANALYSETTE 22 NanoTec.

What are the most interesting and most innovative industry solutions? This question was explored these past weeks by the INDUSTRIEPREIS 2008 (Innovation Award) of the Initiative Mittelstand (initiative of medium sized businesses). A record number of more than 600 applications competed and on April 22nd 2008, the jury announced the industry award 2008 winners: In the category “optical technologies” FRITSCH – Milling and Sizing, was honoured for the Laser Particle Sizer ANALYSETTE 22. Therefore, FRITSCH continues to set standards in the area of innovations.

The top-model of the ANALYSETTE 22-series, the ANALYSETTE 22 NanoTec, convinced the independent jury consisting of professors, scientists, trade journalists and industry experts. They judged the degree of innovation and the economic significance of the products and innovations from the different areas like for example: laser technology, micro technology, optical instrumentation, environmental technology, electronic engineering, surface technology or research.

FRITSCH has patented measurement through laser diffraction in a convergent laser beam and therefore the infinitely adjustable adaptation of the measurement range, as well as a previously unachieved number of measurement channels. With a measurement range from 10 nm to 2000 µm, the ANALYSETTE 22 NanoTec offers true entry into the nano range. This is achieved through the use of a second laser beam that is directed at the sample from behind, allowing for detection of the back-scattering light.

The patented capability to move the measurement cell within the beam path of the optical system during the measurement also results in a very high number of effective detection channels, which can be over 500 for the NanoTec model, which leads to a correspondingly high number of particle size classes and therefore a very high resolution. The special shape of the detector combined with intelligent analysis software also allows information to be obtained about the particle shape.
The Laser Particle Sizer ANALYSETTE 22 NanoTec is an instrument with universal applications for the determination of particle size distributions and particle shape detection of solids, dry or in suspension, and of emulsions. It is used in research and development, as well as in quality control and process control. ANALYSETTE 22 is the only instrument in the world with which particle size distribution and the particle shape can be analysed in a single measurement.

Laser diffraction offers important advantages compared to the "classic" measurement methods of sieving, sedimentation or image analysis such as short analysis times, good reproducibility and precision, simple calibration, large measurement range and high flexibility.

Consequently, it has now established itself worldwide and won out over the typical methods. Through combination of corresponding components, you can configure a measurement system that is precisely adapted to your needs, with reliability and efficiency guaranteed by FRITSCH as a specialist in particle measurement technology.

Fritsch GmbH

FRITSCH: Your specialist in the processing laboratory

FRITSCH is the world-wide leading manufacturer of instruments for sample preparation and particle size analysis in the laboratory. Since 87 years now, the company is concentrating on the three product groups and identified with the brand names of PULVERISETTE, ANALYSETTE and LABORETTE in research and industrial laboratories. The FRITSCH name is synonymous with technical competence and economical efficiency in all matters in the field of

milling - particle sizing - dividing

Because FRITSCH operates throughout the world, they have the unique advantage of vast experience in a wide variety of scientific disciplines which enables them to offer constructive solutions to ease problem solving. FRITSCH laboratory instruments ensure proven, extreme longevity, highest quality and innovative technology in combination with simple operation.

Here a short view of the FRITSCH instrument range:

Mills for analytical sample preparation
FRITSCH offers an entire range of instruments for crushing, grinding, fine-milling, mixing and homogenising of hard-brittle, fibrous, elastic to soft materials dry or in suspension. The FRITSCH variety of grinding mills includes different ball mills, planetary ball mills, cutting mills, rotor mills, jaw crushers enables an optimal adjustment of the grinding process to the sample material and the following analyse.
Show us the sample, which you can’t manage to grind and we’ll show you the instrument which can do it!

Sieve Shakers and Laser Particle Sizers for particle size determination
FRITSCH with their vast experience in the particle sizing field offers Sieve Shakers as well as Laser Particle Sizers in different version.
FRITSCH offers due to its equipment varieties for each special use and application a particle size measuring instrument, which uses the most modern laser technology or the well-tried and reliable sieving method and this with an unbeatable price-to-performance ratio.

Laboratory instruments for analytical sample handling
The FRITSCH instrument range also includes sample divider and feeder, because representative sample dividing of dry samples or suspension as well as controlled and uniform sample feeding for mills and other instruments are basic conditions for reliable and precise analysis.

In addition to the complete programme of laboratory instruments, FRITSCH also offers a comprehensive range of services with Workshops, product presentations with the FRITSCH-Mobile laboratory bus on your door step, test milling or particle size analysis of your sample at no charge and much more.

Please use our instrument search engine and our grinding report data base on the FRITSCH-Homepage under www.fritsch.de – sample preparation – solutions. Here you will find your suitable instrument as well as a comparative grinding report comparable with your application.

Make use of our decades of experience. We can facilitate your work substantially.
