The JM Canty Industrial SolidSizer™ is a vision based sensor used with the Vector System for dry particle size measurement in a production environment as an on-line production tool. The SolidSizer™ includes a B & W camera with a shutter speed control and a variable magnification lens, a light source with a flexible fiber optic light guide to generate a uniform light field to display silhouette images of opaque particles, and a vibratory feeder to present sample material to the camera / lights in free fall. The weatherproof camera is equipped with a spray ring that can be charged intermittently to control dust buildup on the outside of the camera view port. The camera video is provided to the Vector System for analysis that extracts particle size information. This sheet identifies the features of the SolidSizer™ and provides ordering information. Typical installations also include the Vector System.
