As ink particles are so fine the two grooves of the gauge have a gentle gradient allowing a scale of 2.5µm for better resolution.
The groove width is 25mm (0.98”) and the groove length is 165mm (6.5”). The NPIRI scale is displayed alongside the microns scale. The NPIRI gauge and its scraper are made of hardened stainless steel.

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.
