Qualtech Products Industry precision Grindometer is a professional Fineness of Grind Gauge to measure the particle size of suspensions including paint, coatings, ink, pigments, paper, ceramics, plastic, pharmaceuticals, food products and related sample materials. This professional Grindometer consists of a precision engineered hardened stainless steel Grindometer Base with a Single Channel, Double Channel or Wide Channel carved into its surface combined with a precision engineered Scraper Blade.
This professional Fineness of Grind Gage presents precision graduations in Microns, Mils, NS (Hegman) on the top surface to offer a user-friendly application and comfortable reading of sample test results.
This precision Grindometer and Fineness of Grind Gauge is used to indicate the Fineness of Grind or the presence of coarse particles or agglomerates in dispersions and suspensions – heterogenous mixtures containing solid particles to control the production, storage, and application of products which are milled or ground during the production.
The liquid sample is poured into the deep end of the Channel or Groove and is distributed with the Scraper Blade towards the flat or shallow end of the Channel carved into the Grindometer until the largest particle size present in the sample liquid is equivalent to the depth of the groove of the Fineness of Grind Gauge.
This precision Hegman Gauge determines the largest particle size and possible irregularities present in dispersions and suspensions instantly, efficiently and with the use of only a very small amount of the liquid sample.
This professional Fineness of Grind Gauge is designed and engineered in accordance with international test standards including:
- ASTM D333 (Standard Guide for Clear and Pigmented Lacquers)
- ASTM D1210 (Standard Test Method for Fineness of Dispersion of Pigment-Vehicle Systems by Hegman-Type Gage)
