Elcometer 2050 High Precision Grindometer

This single channel precision grind gauge is used to determine particle size and fineness of grind for many materials including paints, pigments, inks, coatings, chocolates and other similar products.

Manufactured out of hardened stainless steel each gauge is graduated in microns on the top to an accuracy of ±3μm (0.12mil) or ±5% whichever is the greater. The groove width is 12mm (0.47") and the groove length is 200mm (7.87").

The High Precision Grindometer has a single groove.

How to measure dispersion using Elcometer Fineness of Grind Gauges

Measuring the particle size of the material (also known as dispersion) is an essential part of ensuring reliable and repeatable formulations. Typically, to measure dispersion, fineness of grind gauges are used.
