Xoptix Ltd have signed a strategic OEM agreement with Hosokawa Micron Ltd and Hosokawa Alpine, to sell their XO in-process particle sizer, and further enhance their global presence in real-time monitoring of process efficiency.
The Xoptix XO particle sizer is used in applications such as cement, pharmaceutical, calcium carbonate and toner, where continued monitoring of particle size is critical. The unique inline quality control monitoring offers these industries genuine cost savings which are realised quickly, due to increased process efficiency.

They liked our inline particle sizer that much they wanted to put their name on it!” He adds “Our global distribution network will continue to grow in 2015, as we not only diversify into new markets with new products, but also expand our current stronghold in applications such as cement, powder coating and petrochemical catalysts.”
