Extremely Versatile Data Presentation and Reporting Software
The SediGraph III 5120 is equipped with a versatile, easy-to-use user interface that provides all of the convenient features you expect from a Windows®-based program.These features include point-and-click menus, customizable reports with your laboratory logo graphic, editable graphs, cut-and-paste graphics and tables, data export features, and more. Custom protocols help plan, launch, and control the analysis and assure that subsequent analyses are all performed in the same manner, regardless of the skill of the operator. You can collect, organize, archive and reduce raw data, and store standardized sample information and analysis conditions for easy access during later applications. Finished reports may be generated to screen, paper, or transferred in a variety of formats to storage devices.
Detailed analysis data for particles ranging from 300 to 0.1 μm are provided automatically by the SediGraph III. Data collected from other particle size analyses ranging from 125,000 to 300 μm can be combined with SediGraph data, enabling effective reporting for particles ranging from 125,000 to 0.1 μm. That fraction finer than 0.1 μm is also indicated.
In addition to tabular data, different graphical analysis plot types are available including:
- Cumulative Mass, Area, and Number
- Settling Velocity Distribution
- Process Control Charts
- Log Probability
- Baseline/Full Scale References
- Frequency Distribution
- Difference From Reference
- Out of Specification
- Regression Analyses
Plots can be over-laid for comparing the results from different samples or for comparing different plot types from the same sample.This allows you to compare analysis results to a standard. Plots can be rescaled to give you the ability to scrutinize closely your graphical data.
A new column has been added to the tables and to the x-axis selection in the graphs that reports size in Phi units, where Φ= -log2 (particle diameter in mm). Also, a column selection for settling velocity (cm/s) is available for tables. The x-axis of plots can be scaled in particle size or settling velocity.The SediGraph is the only automated particle sizing instrument that directly measures settling velocity.
SPC Reporting and Regression Analyses
Statistical Process Control (SPC) reporting provides an easy method for continuously monitoring production processes and reducing response times to deviations from the standard. Regression analyses allow you to determine the relationship between a control parameter, for example, and a measured characteristic of the sample.
Select from 26 axis variables including:
- Size at (percentile)
- Standard Deviation
- Coefficient of Variation
- - N σ Size
- + N σ Size
- Specific Surface Area
- Cumulative Percent at Size
- Percent Out of Specification
- Full Scale Scan Pump Speed
- MasterTech Stirrer Speed
- MasterTech Stirrer Time
- MasterTech Ultrasonic Probe Time
- Particle Density
- Liquid Viscosity
- Liquid Density
- Three User-defined (External) Parameters
