Dynamic Image Analyzer:
Litesizer DIA 500

  • media
  • +7
  • 360°
  • Measure samples between 0.8 µm and 8,000 µm and even detect and analyze single particles
  • Use the operating software Kalliope to get started quickly and work in one digital space
  • Comply with relevant safety standards and avoid any operation errors
  • Leverage the instrument’s automation features so you can focus on more important tasks

With Litesizer DIA 500, our dynamic image analyzer, you can easily and reliably characterize the size and shape of particles via analysis of their direct images. In just one step, quickly switch among three modules that use dispersion liquid, compressed air, or free-fall and access excellent dispersion of your sample. Rely on automated features, such as feeding rate adjustment and rinsing of liquids, and conduct measurements with only minimal training.

That’s particle analysis at the touch of a button.

Key features

One measurement gives you the size and shape of particles

One measurement gives you the size and shape of particles

  • Measure the size and shape of samples with a broad particle size range of 0.8 µm to 8,000 µm
  • Detect and analyze even single outlier particles with our dynamic image analyzer in populations counted in millions
  • Use a market-leading liquid dispersion range up to 2,500 µm
  • Replace sieve analysis with fully compatible, safe and fast dynamic image analysis. Get a better understanding of how size and shape influence your processes
Kalliope software optimizes your measurements

Kalliope software optimizes your measurements

  • Get your measurement going in just three clicks
  • Analyze size, shape, and image in one digital space with Kalliope's one-page workflow
  • Find particles of specific size and shape with just a few clicks by using Kalliope’s powerful filtering feature
  • Operate all of your Anton Paar particle-sizing instruments from Kalliope
Your operator safety is our priority

Your operator safety is our priority

  • Stay safe with a safety cover that prevents dangerous sample spread
  • Know that your dynamic image analyzer can’t overheat: It recognizes there’s enough liquid in the system before sonication switches on
  • Be sure that any dangerous, samples are contained due to automatic suction check
  • Comply with relevant safety standards, such as EN 61010:2010, ISO 12100:2011, and many others; Litesizer DIA 500 is even protected against ingress of water and particles
One dynamic image analyzer, three dispersion units

One dynamic image analyzer, three dispersion units

  • Measure various samples with three dispersion units: Liquid Flow (dispersion liquid), Dry Jet (compressed air), and Free Fall (gravitational fall)
  • Switch between dispersion units with the Quick-Click feature in just one move; no need to fumble around with cables, tubes, and pipes
Automated features save you time

Automated features save you time

  • Stop worrying about setting the optimal sample feeding rate – Litesizer DIA 500 does this for you
  • Automate the filing, draining, and rinsing of the dispersion liquid so you can focus on more important tasks
  • Optimize your data inflow by setting auto-filtering of particles of interest, maximize data quality, and speed up your analysis
  • “…the DIA 500 has an inspiring resolution – you see a few coarse particles in a matrix of thousands of small particles…”

    Dr. Morten Schonert, Manager Research Projects, Automotive Catalyst, Umicore AG & Co. KG

  • "Only with reliable quality control tools like the Anton Paar’s Litesizer DIA 500 can we craft the powders our clients deserve"

    Bartosz Morończyk, Application Engineer, AMAZEMET
