Online Agglomeration Monitoring
The Pixact Agglomeration Monitoring system is designed for the online analysis of solid agglomeration and flocculation in a variety of industrial processes. The measurement is based on the direct optical imaging of a suspension combined with advanced image analysis. The IP68 protected equipment can be installed directly on the process line or a dedicated sampling line.
Images are processed with real-time image analysis for detailed information on the suspension. All particles and other dispersed phase elements are detected and analyzed. In a subsequent particle classification procedure, agglomerates are recognized on the basis of selected morphological parameters.
Examples of applications
Pixcell for installation on pipelines - available in DN6, DN25 and DN50
Pixscope for installation on reactors - available in DN50 and DN100
Other sizes and flange types on request, IP68 protected

Data collection and communication
For communication with external systems, the Pixact measurement systems support a wide range of automation interfaces, including Profibus and analog I/O (mA/V).
The standard measurement range is 10 µm - 5 mm. The range can be extended using a comprehensive selection of Pixact imaging components.
