VolScan Profiler Accessories

View a range of optional extras that are available for the VolScan Profiler.

  • Volume Verification Ball
  • Universal Product Support components
  • Soft and long product requiring support throughout its length; three medium spikes add extra support for stability of product base
  • Soft yet heavy product requires long support and spikes spaced wider apart; medium spikes give stability and distribute weight to avoid product sagging
  • Multiple small uniform samples can be mounted and tested together on a skewer, rapidly providing an average result
  • For a brittle product which is wide but has limited base contact, a row of small thin spikes is advised with the top pin providing vertical support
  • Sample Platform and disposable inserts

Volume Verification Ball

A measurement is only worth performing if it’s accurate. This is why you’ll want to have control of instrument calibration and the means of verifying that the instrument is measuring accurately by testing a ‘Known Volume Verification’ Ball.

The instrument will verify that the ball correlates with the measurement values as provided by the manufacturer so that you can continue your product testing feeling confident that your instrument performance has been checked.

The Universal Product Support

As the VolScan Profiler provides the largest sample testing envelope in comparison to other laser volume measuring instruments, the scope of potential test samples extends much wider.

The choice and configuration of spikes and skewers for product support depend on the dimensions and texture (e.g. brittleness, softness), weight, centre of gravity and contact area with the base. The aim is to provide vertical stability without damaging the sample structure and thereby allowing an accurate measurement of its dimensions and volume to be recorded during the test.

The Universal Product Support is an optional accessory which extends the range of products which can be held within the instrument in order to be successfully tested. It provides a myriad of support solutions by presenting a 100mm diameter base with an array of pins of differing thicknesses and lengths.

The choice and arrangement of spikes and skewers depend on the dimensions and texture (e.g. brittleness, softness), weight, centre of gravity and contact area with the base. The aim is to provide vertical stability without damaging the sample structure and thereby allowing an accurate measurement of its dimensions and volume to be recorded during the test.

This Community Registered Design by Stable Micro Systems continues the expansion of product testing and analysis opportunities for the VolScan Profiler – a continuous development and improvement process which applies to all of Stable Micro Systems products.

Sample Platform for Disposable Inserts

Disposable sample platforms provide the means to adhere samples to the platform and allow for quick removal and replacement between tests. They are located via a magnet and provided in batches of 50 which be reusable, according to the chosen adhesive.
