These two channel gauges, are made of hardened stainless steel and have two grooves with a graded slope (dependent on the model chosen).
Graduated in microns, mils, NS (Hegman) or PCU (North), the gauges have a accuracy of ±3μm (0.12mil) or ±5% whichever is the greater. The groove width for all models is 12mm (0.47”) with a groove length of 127mm (5.0”).
How to use a Fineness of Grind Gauge
||The material is placed on the deepest part of the groove and, using the scraper provided, drawn up the slope - the particle size is indicated where the material stops.|

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.
