Hegman gauge analyser

Due to its robust, low-maintenance design, super-sharp imaging, customisability and versatility, TIDAS has become the go-to system for grind gauge/grindometer testing.

A revolution for particle size analysis

TIDAS is a small, easy-to-use bench-top system that eliminates the need for manual grindometer, or Hegman gauge. Due to its robust, low-maintenance design, super-sharp imaging, customisability and versatility, TIDAS has become the go-to system for grind gauge/grindometer testing.

Objective rating in seconds

TIDAS automates the analysis of a wide range of samples using a Hegman gauge. Fineness of grind is determined objectively, removing operator variation and ensuring reproducibility. Each reading takes less than 20 seconds. If you use a Hegman gauge in your process, you will benefit from TIDAS.
  • No more operator variation
  • Eliminate site variation
  • Super quick analysis

Optimise your workflow

Production of paints, coatings, battery materials and inks means running costly factory processes. Preventing unnecessary over-processing from inconsistent, manual Hegman testing can translate to substantial savings. The benefits are twofold; saving costs from over-processing whilst also freeing up factory equipment to continue with other work.
  • Save costs that come from over-processing
  • Free up factory equipment to continue with other work
  • No need to take multiple readings to find an average

Absolute quality control

TIDAS can be used at all stages of a product life cycle. From suppliers testing raw materials, to manufacturers analysing incoming sample, all the way through to quality control of final product. Users are able to preset TIDAS to automatically produce a pass or fail against their quality standards. Particulate data results are digitally stored with multiple benefits;
  • Sharing between sites globally
  • Customer-supplier quality analysis
  • Long term production analysis
  • Having confidence in the quality of your product
Applicable to many applicationsBattery materials, Paints, Pigments, Ink, Resins, Sealants, Graphene, Polymers, Cosmetics, Food, Ceramics, Solder pastes, AdditivesMinerals - take your pick, TIDAS can test it.
Tried and testedTIDAS was developed over 25 years ago and has gone through several iterations, each honing its performance and reliability. It now operates in over 40 countries for a range of companies including Akzo Nobel, Venator and BASF.
Compatible & customisableTIDAS’s dedicated software can be customised to match your requirements allowing you to set ratings and more. TIDAS works with a wide range of gauge sizes to suit your existing workflow.

“The newest model of TIDAS instruments is being put through rigorous evaluation and constant use. The upgrades to the software and automatic draw-down device have made this newest member of the TIDAS family an indispensable must have. The results obtained from the TIDAS instruments have made it easy to show our customers the reality of lab grind analysis without putting on a lab coat, for this we are grateful. Thanks to the Labman team for the great support and superb customer service. The transition from installation to full practice was a snap.”
