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:
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. Some customers just need to ask an occasional question or to download a software upgrade, whilst others require a comprehensive support contract with priority call out and fixed cost of ownership. Whatever your situation Malvern will provide the right support for you.

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...
This live 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 wit...
This presentation discusses the importance of particle size, zeta potential and rheology for a functional suspension, and demonstrates how these properties can be manipulated to induce dispersion stability.
Efficient dispersion of your sample enables accurate particle sizing. But how can you tell if you are merely dispersing agglomerates or starting to break up or mill your particles? The Hydro Sight accessory for the Mastersizer range shows you all y...
