Pixact develops and supplies online process measurements based on digital imaging. The company started as a spin-off from academic research on 2006.
The Pixact technology is based on high-magnification imaging of process suspensions followed by real-time computational image analysis to retrieve desired measurement information. This technology allows our customers to monitor and control their processes efficiently leading to improved performance and even more simple operation. The application areas often comprise critical process steps, which previously have not be monitored or controlled online. Typical measurement results include the distributions and trends for the particle size, morphology and color, Here the particle refers to any dispersed phase element, such as bubble, droplet, fiber, cell etc.
In addition to complete measurement systems, Pixact offers contact research and analysis services. Our references include several applications in the pulp & paper, water treatment and chemical industries, such as general particle diagnostics, flotation, flocculation, crystallization and polymerization.
