Phase Doppler Interferometer (PDI)

We primarily use three types of PDI instruments to characterize spray droplets.

Droplet Size Droplet Velocity Spray Concentration Volume Flux

PDI Turnkey

The phase Doppler interferometry instruments measure drop size, velocity and volume flux at a point within a spray plume

Droplet Size Droplet Velocity Volume Flux

Laser Sheet Imaging

We use LSI instruments to measure spray distribution at various angles in gas conditioning and other applications.

Volume Distribution Spray Angle Spray Concentration

Laser Diffraction Particle Analysis

LD instruments allow us to quickly and accurately assess drop size distribution within a spray plume.

Droplet Size Solid Particles

High-speed Imaging

See how we use high-speed cameras to capture and play back videos of the spray process, allowing us to help customers optimize their spray operations.

Droplet Shape

Containment Booth

Our containment booth allows us to test for significant misting and evaluate spray materials that need to be moderately contained.

Conveyor Testing

Our conveyor tests help you understand the impact of line speed, nozzle type and other spray parameters in conveyorized processes.

Conveyor Testing

High-impact Testing

High-impact testers help characterize the force profile generated by high-momentum sprays in cleaning, descaling and material-moving applications.

Spray Impact

Laser Imaging

This laser imaging method provides instantaneous images of a spray that can be analyzed to identify droplet characteristics.

Droplet Size Droplet Velocity Droplet Shape Solid Particles

Low-impact Testing

We use TekScan’s capacitive sheet material to measure low-impact forces generated in the spray pattern of two-layer materials.

Spray Impact

Mechanical Patternator

Using this instrument is the most direct method of evaluating the liquid distribution of one or more nozzles.

Volume Distribution

Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV)

The PIV system measures particle and droplet velocities in nozzle prototypes and as part of the CFD validation process.

Droplet Velocity

Phase Doppler Particle Analyzer (PDPA)

PDPA systems with PowerSight modules provide accurate spray data across all measurement situations.

Rheology Testing Equipment

We use a variety of instruments for characterizing fluid rheology properties and analyzing their effect on the spray plume.

Wind Tunnel

Our wind tunnel serves as a simple, flexible solution for simulating environmental airflow in co-flow, counter-flow and cross-flow conditions.
