Precision Instruments for Particle Size and Shape Characterization. Occhio specializes in the manufacturing and development of measurement instruments for the characterization of the size and shape of powders, aggregates, suspensions and emulsions.
Our instruments use ISO compliant image analysis methods which allows the shape and size distribution of different types of samples to be calculated in a wide variety of applications.
Depending on the type of samples and the characterization needs requested by our customers, we can offer you cutting-edge software and instruments for:
- Laboratory analyses
- Quality Control
- Production control
- Research and development
Image analysis (dynamic and static) is the most suitable method for precision measurement with the added benefit of giving the user a better understanding of the physical properties of a sample. This technique is used for research and development applications but also for routine analyses replacing both the sieving and laser diffraction methods.
LIQUID DISPERSION INSTRUMENTS
liquid dispersion particle size between 0.2µm and 3mm.
A suspension is created by the addition of particles into a medium such as water and an emulsion is made when two liquid mediums are combined which do not mix such as an oil and water mixture.
DRY DISPERSION INSTRUMENTS
Dry dispersion particle size between 0.2µm and 50mm
The dry phase covers a very wide range of samples from powders often less than a millimeter in size, to aggregates, from around 100µm to 10mm and even larger particles up to 5cm.
Callisto 3D and Granusize are the software created by Occhio and used with every Occhio instrument featuring a modern and intuitive interface, among the most advanced on the market.
These are instruments developed for particular applications. The Sievecal for the verification and calibration of sieves according to ISO / ASTM standards, and the VDD270, an independent tool for the dispersion of powders on an external support (optical microscope glass or support for electron scanning microscope)e.
