MicroFlow Particle Sizing System

The Canty Microflow has been engineered to offer the user a means by which a liquid is analyzed while under varying pressures, temperatures and flow rates. The Microflow offers sample or continuous, microscopic, non-destructive viewing and provides particle size analysis with two dimensional results when used in conjunction with the Canty Vector System.
