Entry level particle sizing

The Mastersizer 3000 is highly regarded as the premier laser diffraction particle size analysis instrument on the market for design, performance and software user experience. However, some customers do not immediately need the advanced functionality that the Mastersizer 3000 offers. Malvern Panalytical have therefore introduced an entry level instrument to the Mastersizer product family which is based upon the proven design of the Mastersizer 3000 but with more basic performance and software functionality.The Mastersizer 3000E provides a cost-effective, entry level particle sizing system which can be upgraded as required.

How it works

How it works

The Mastersizer 3000E uses the technique of laser diffraction to measure the size of particles. It does this by measuring the intensity of light scattered as a laser beam passes through a dispersed particulate sample. This data is then analysed to calculate the size of the particles that created the scattering pattern.

A typical system is made up of three main elements:

  • Optical bench - A dispersed sample passes though the measurement area of the optical bench, where a laser beam illuminates the particles. A series of detectors then accurately measure the intensity of light scattered by the particles within the sample over a wide range of angles.
  • Sample dispersion units (accessories). Sample dispersion is controlled by a range of wet and dry dispersion units. These ensure the particles are delivered to the measurement area of the optical bench at the correct concentration and in a suitable, stable state of dispersion.
  • Instrument software. The Mastersizer 3000E software controls the system during the measurement process and analyzes the scattering data to calculate a particle size distribution.


Hydro Sight
See you dispersion
The Hydro Sight™ is a revolutionary accessory for the Mastersizer range of instruments providing rapid visualization and assessment of your liquid particle dispersion during a measurement.

Hydro SV
Small volume wet sample dispersion
The Hydro SV is a simple, cost effective liquid dispersion unit designed to enable particle size analysis using small volumes of sample and dispersant.

Hydro MV
Medium volume automated dispersion unit
The Hydro MV is medium volume unit for the controlled, automated wet dispersion of samples for particle size analysis. Suitable for both aqueous and non-aqueous applications, it is especially useful when sample size is limited and/or dispersant use must be minimized.

Hydro LV 
Large volume wet sample dispersion
The Hydro LV is an automated large volume unit that controls wet dispersion of materials for particle size analysis. It is especially suitable for applications where the sample size is relatively large or the size distribution is very broad.

Hydro EV
Flexible volume wet dispersion
A unique dip-in wet sample dispersion unit that can be used with standard laboratory glassware. Suitable for a wide variety of dispersant volumes and particle size ranges.

Hydro SM
Small volume entry level wet dispersion unit
The Hydro SM is a cost effective wet sample dispersion unit designed for measuring samples in non-aqueous dispersants where solvent usage needs to be minimized.

Aero M
Routine particle size analysis for bulk dry powder samples

The Aero M dry powder disperser enables bulk dry powder samples to be measured using the Mastersizer 3000E laser diffraction particle size analyzer. Its simple design ensures that it is easy to use and maintain, delivering robust, reproducible particle size distribution measurements as part of routine production or quality control operations.
