- Early Problem Detection
- Size / Count / Concentration
- Real Time Analysis
Manual monitoring of a crystallization process is done through the use of the CANTY Fuseview™ and Fiber Optic Lighting System, providing the operator with light and sight on one vessel connection, saving space, and also ensuring optimum illumination of the area which the operator is viewing. Remote process monitoring is possible through the use of a microscopic camera system to allow the user to view the growth of the crystals. The CANTY range combines CANTY’s fused glass and lighting technologies to provide an unrivaled continuous view from initial nucleation, allowing for early problem detection (eg. secondary seeding) and reaction. CANTYVISION™ image analysis software allows for particle size and shape characterization during the initial stages of crystal growth (up to 5% concentration), while the remote view is continuous throughout the process.

CANTY fiber optic lighting systems have been designed to provide efficient, high output LED light in a cost effective package. CANTY uses only high quality, flexible fiber optic light pipes to guide the light from our light source through a sight glass or process connection. The light is elliptically focused into the fiber optic light pipe and guided through the sight glass minimizing losses while maximizing your tank or vessel lighting!

Canty participates in the referenced ASTM subcommittees (D18.26, D32.02 and E29.02) in order to develop useful standards for imaging analyzers. Although the referenced standards are often particular to a type of particle, they can be generalized for use with many types of particles.
ISO9276-6 is widely used to describe shape parameters and provide corresponding formulae for calculation of values.
