The Mastersizer 3000 laser diffraction particle size analyzer delivers rapid, accurate particle size distributions for both wet and dry dispersions with the minimum of effort. Measuring over the nanometer to millimeter particle size ranges, it packs exceptional performance into the smallest of footprints, bringing operator-independent measurements that every user can rely on.
The Mastersizer 3000 is the latest generation of the world’s most popular particle sizing instrument. Incorporating expert engineering and applications know-how into every stage of its design, it delivers:
The Mastersizer 3000 uses the technique of laser diffraction to measure the size of particles. It does this by measuring the intensity of light scattered as a laser beam passes through a dispersed particulate sample. This data is then analyzed to calculate the size of the particles that created the scattering pattern.
A typical system is made up of three main elements:
Protect your investment and ensure optimized performance at all times with Malvern’s service plans.
When you purchase a Malvern product we understand that this is just the first stage of a working relationship that will last for the lifetime of the instrument. Depending on your needs, Malvern will provide the support for your business.
For laboratories where maximizing instrument up-time is critical to its daily performance. Our highest level of response and the 'all inclusive' price plan takes care of those unexpected repair bills should the unfortunate occur.
Enhance your laboratory productivity by maintaining instrument efficiency. Still receive that priority response, combined with specialist technical and software support, we'll keep your instrument performance on track to deliver.
For laboratories looking to optimize instrument performance, regular preventative maintenance is essential.

Since its launch in 2011 the Mastersizer 3000 has been shown to offer users many improvements in ease of use, speed of measurement and scope of application compared to the Mastersizer 2000. However, these cannot be realised within Quality Control app...
Large amounts of testing is being performed to optimise the efficiency of oil / water separators in diesel engines. The filters remove any solid components (rust, paint chips) that may cause wear on the engine as well as undissolved water (that will ...
This online demo is designed to provide you with an introduction to the Mastersizer 3000. You will be able to take a look at the Mastersizer 3000 and it’s accessories via the webcam in our lab, and we will share the Mastersizer 3000 software with you...
As diffraction is based upon the volume of the equivalent sphere, then unless the particles are perfectly spherical, there will be differences dependent upon the shape of the particle.
Analyzing powders as a dry dispersion is in many ways simpler and faster than wet dispersion. In order to characterize a wide variety of materials accurately, it is important to control the aerodynamic dispersion. From limited quantities of Active Ph...

The software really is the shining star of the Mastersizer 3000. It makes it feel radically different from other systems on the market and a really great instrument to use. I especially like the live trends which make it so quick and easy to compare data sets.

Throughout the research and purchasing process, we assessed at least five to six different systems before selecting the Mastersizer 3000.
We use software capabilities, which were originally developed by Malvern for pharmaceutical industry users, to apply and demonstrate the analytical rigor required for certification of our powders.

Malvern came recommended by colleagues in the industry but it was the features of the Mastersizer 3000 itself that sold us on the instrument. We’ve been running for a year now without any reliability issues and with minimal running costs. Most importantly we produce data that can be trusted.
