PRECISION PARTICLE SIZE MEASUREMENT FOR RESEARCH, DEVELOPMENT, AND MANUFACTURING IS REQUIRED IN MULTIPLE INDUSTRIES TO ENSURE QUALITY, CONSISTENCY, AND PROCESS OPTIMIZATION.
AS ADVANCES IN NANOMATERIALS CONTINUE TO REVOLUTIONIZE DIVERSE INDUSTRIES, ACCURATE MEASUREMENT OF NANOPARTICLES BECOMES MORE CRITICAL.
The capability to accurately measurement of nanoscale particulates speeds adoption of nanotechnology. Labs with capability for consistent quality control of nanoscale particulates can more easily comply with nanoparticle regulations, reducing the potential financial risk of non-compliance.
The CPS disc centrifuge provides higher resolution measurements of nanoscale particluates than light scattering or particle counting methods, with much faster measurements than competitive sedimentation-based particle sizing instruments. Whether replacing an aging particle characterization system or increasing capability with a new system, an investment in a CPS Disc Centrifuge is an investment that reduces potential regulatory problems.
Healthcare & Pharmaceutical
THE CPS DISC CENTRIFUGE BUILDS CONFIDENCE THROUGH HIGHLY REPRODUCIBLE PARTICLE SIZE ANALYSES.
Nowhere is accurate, consistent particle size measurement more critical than in the healthcare industry. In the development of safe, effective drug delivery systems, pharmaceutical companies rely on the precise measurement of nanosize particles. For example, growth of harmful bacteria on surfaces is controlled using carefully calculated nanoparticulate microbial additives as sterile surface treatments.
Highly reproducible results make CPS Instruments the choice of many pharmaceutical researchers around the world. The typical 95% confidence range for reported peak sizes in replicate analyses is typically +/-1% or better. Because the CPS system constantly monitors and records the balance of the disc and the temperature of the analysis chamber, researchers can count on reliable results over a much longer instrument life span.
Healthcare and pharmaceutical industry experts trust the CPS disc centrifuge to accurately measure:
Virus and virus-like particles
Cells, cultures, and cell fragments
Particles in diagnostic tests
THE PETROCHEMICAL INDUSTRY CAPITALIZES ON CPS INSTRUMENTS' HIGH RESOLUTION APPROACH TO PARTICLE CHARACTERIZATION.
While researchers and technicians in the petrochemical industry rely on the high-resolution and sensitivity of the CPS Disc Centrifuge, lab managers appreciate the instrument’s speed and ease-of-use. The centrifuge operates continuously with a minimum of operator labor, and CPS has eliminated the traditional time costs that come with cleaning an instrument between samples.
The instrument’s much higher maximum speed and faster instrument detector response further enhance performance. All of measurements in the CPS Disc Centrifuge run in 1/3 to 1/6 of the time required by comparable sedimentation-based particle-sizing instruments, and with speed ramping, analyses can take less than 5% the time of the competition.

Polishing/Chemical Mechanical Planarization
WITH EVER IMPROVING QUALITY AND THE NEED TO CONTINUOUSLY INNOVATE PRODUCTS, THE POLISHING AND CMP INDUSTRIES UTILIZE THE CPS DISC CENTRIFUGE IN AREAS OF PRODUCTION, QUALITY CONTROL AND R&D.
Integrated circuit fabrication is done via photolithography, starting with a very smooth silicon wafer. The process can involve as many as 50 different lithograph steps. Due to the very small feature sizes in integrated circuits, it is usually necessary to return the working surface to a very smooth state between lithography steps. This is done using a process called Chemical Mechanical Planarization (CMP). CMP compounds contain very small abrasive particles, along with chemical additives. Both the rate of planarization and the achievable surface smoothness after polishing depend on the distribution of sizes in the abrasive particles. The CPS Disc Centrifuge is routinely used to measure the size distribution of the abrasive particles in CMP compounds, so that consistent polishing performance is achieved. Whether you are a CMP abrasive supplier, CMP formulator, or a user of CMP compounds, you can rely on the CPS Disc Cnetrifuge to provide accurate, repeatable, and high-resolution particle size measurements of abrasive particles.
Ink, Toner & Paint
MANUFACTURERS IN THE PRINTING INK AND PAINT INDUSTRIES EVALUATE THE DISPERSION QUALITY OF THE COATINGS THAT MAKE OUR LIVES MORE COLORFUL WITH THE CPS DISC CENTRIFUGE.
New techniques in the development of paints, toners, and inks lead to more vibrant colors, but that’s not the only advantage the paint and ink industries have gained from the development of synthetic chemicals and nanopowders. The nanoparticulates in paints can be used to improve weatherability, abrasion resistance, and corrosion protection while print resolution and stability are impacted by particle size and distribution. In each case, the effectiveness of the outcome is based on the quality of nanodispersions.
Manufacturers in the printing ink and paint industries reduce wasted resources and improve product quality by using CPS Instruments’ disc centrifuge to analyze:
Oil- and water-based pigments
Micro-fiber paint viscosity modifiers
Printer/copier toner powers
Magnetic iron oxide
Mining & Minerals
THE MINING INDUSTRY REDUCES LIABILITIES AND INCREASES PROFITABILITY WITH CPS INSTRUMENTS' COMMITMENT TO RESULTS.
With the depletion of easily-accessible high grade ore deposits, companies faced with the challenge of mining low grade ores turn to CPS Instruments’ disc centrifuge to optimize the extraction process. The instrument’s meticulous data analysis enhances feasibility studies while ensuring compliance with product standards and environmental regulations.
The tough, thermoplastic outer shell of the disc centrifuge offers resilient protection against caustic chemicals and physical stress, and the instrument’s predominantly aluminum interior is protected from corrosion as well. An on-board balancing device monitors the balance of the disc to ensure longer than normal bearings life, making the CPS disc centrifuge a logical, long-term investment for those in the mining industry.
Mining industry operations officers reduce liabilities and long-term overhead costs when they choose the CPS disc centrifuge for measuring:
Calcium carbonate, clay, and other mineral filler materials
Magnetic iron oxide
