More ways to ensure quality

Industry applications

Precision measurement for research, development, and high speed manufacturing is required across multiple industries to ensure quality, consistency and cost management.

Solutions

As advances in nanomaterials continue to revolutionize diverse industries, quality control of nanoparticles becomes more critical.

Accurate measurement of nanoscale particulates results in increased consumer confidence in nanotechnology. Labs with a reputation for precision in quality control will garner more public support, greater investment potential, and increased compliance with regulatory policies.

The CPS disc centrifuge provides a higher resolution than light scattering or particle counting methods at a much faster rate of analysis than competitive sedimentation-based particle sizing instruments. Whether replacing an aging system or increasing capacity with a new system, an investment in a CPS disc centrifuge is an investment in consumer confidence.

Healthcare & pharmaceuticals

Healthcare & pharmaceuticals

The CPS disc centrifuge builds trust through highly reproducible particle size analyses.

Nowhere is accurate measurement more critical than in the healthcare industry. In the development of safe, effective drug delivery systems, healthcare professionals and patients alike rely on the precise measurement of nanosize particles. Hospitals and labs protect lives and prevent contamination and the growth of harmful bacteria using carefully calculated nanoparticulate microbial additives as sterile surface treatments.

Highly reproducible results make CPS Instruments the choice of medical institutions seeking to build trust among investors and in the public eye. The typical 95% confidence range for reported peak sizes in replicate analyses is +/-1 or better. Because the CPS system constantly monitors and records the balance of the disc and the temperature of the analysis chamber, lab technicians and researchers can rely on these same reliable results over the course of 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
  • Protein clusters
  • Liposomes
  • Particles in diagnostic tests
  • Micro-encapsulated drugs

Oil & gas

The oil and gas industry capitalizes on CPS Instruments' pioneering approach to operational efficiency.

While researchers and technicians in the oil and gas industry rely on the high-resolution and delicate sensitivity of the CPS disc centrifuge, operations officers 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 enhances operational efficiency for those in the oil and gas industry. All of the disc centrifuge fixed speed analyses 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 1/20 the time of the competition.

Operations officers using CPS Instruments’ disc centrifuge in the oil and gas industry gain improved operational efficiency in analysis of:

  • Oil emulsions
  • Polymer latexes
  • Catalysts in processes

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.

Chemical Mechanical Planarization (CMP) is a process that can remove topography from silicon oxide, metal and polysilicon surfaces.  It is the preferred planarization step utilized in deep sub-micron IC manufacturing.  More recent scaling of transistor critical dimension has required the use of CMP for applications such as shallow trench isolation (STI) and trenched metal interconnection (Cu damascene). CMP has also been utilized for fabrication and assembly of Micro Electro-Mechanical System (MEMS). In principle, CMP is a process of smoothing and planing surfaces with the combination of chemical and mechanical forces. It can, in a way, be thought of as a hybrid of chemical etching and free abrasive polishing.

Ink, toner, and paint

Ink, toner, and 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
  • Inkjet inks
  • Carbon black
  • Magnetic iron oxide

Mining and minerals

The mining industry reduces liabilities and increases profitability with CPS Instruments' commitment to rugged.

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
