Aerosol and Fluid Mechanics Research Instruments

Kanomax General Catalog (PDF)


The origin of Kanomax is the fluid mechanics laboratory. Goro Kano, the founder of Kanomax, started his laboratory more than 50 years ago. The continuing pursuit in the infinite possibility of fluid mechanics has always been one of the most distinguished activities of Kanomax.

Kanomax light and heat-based instruments successfully achieve high sensitivity, responsiveness, accuracy, and spatial resolution to aim the ultimate measurement solution for fluid mechanics research.

Kanomax provides solutions and services for various types of fluid measurement applications with our abundant experiences and technical expertise. vibration.

Fluid Mechanics Research Instruments


2D Laser Doppler Velocimeter (2D LDV)

Kanomax successfully commercialized the first LDV in Japan around 1970. Since then, we have been a leading producer of LDVs for decades. For LDVs, Kanomax currently focused on providing dependable LDVs at the reasonable cost and comprehensive system and application consultation by our highly experienced engineers. Presently, we provide 1-D, 2-D and simple educational version of LDVs.

Shadow Doppler Particle Analyzer (SDPA)

The Shadow Doppler Particle Analyzer (SDPA) is designed for simultaneous measurement of velocity and size of arbitrary shaped particles. The SDPA system combines an imaging technique with a conventional laser Doppler velocimeter (LDV). In this system, a pair of LDV beams projects images of particles. They are processed and analyzed at lightning speed to find velocity, shape, orientation, and size of particles, regardless of their shape (spherical or non-spherical) and optical property such as refractive index and particle emissivity.

Interferometric Laser Imaging Droplet Sizer (ILIDS)

The Interferometric Laser Imaging Droplet Sizer (ILIDS) is designed to provide planar distribution of size and velocity of individual transparent spherical droplets and bubbles. When a laser sheet is applied to a droplet or bubble and its scattering light is captured at an angle on a non-focal plane, a fringe is observed as a result of interference between the reflected light and refracted light. The number of stripes in the fringe is proportional to the droplet diameter.

Fluorescent Seeding Particles for PIV Applications

FLUOSTAR microspheres are polymer particles encapsulating the fluorescent dye, Rhodamine B, which emits the orange-colored fluorescence when illuminated by a green-colored laser (e.g. Nd:YAG, Nd:YLF). FLUOSTAR feature the outstanding emission efficiency of fluorescence, which are best suited for PIV applications. The strong orange-colored fluorescence may be even observed by sight using a 5 mW laser pointer.
