The ASAP 2460 Surface Area and Porosity Analyzer from Micromeritics is an expandable system designed for exceptionable performance and high sample throughput. The basic unit is a two-port master control unit.
The master unit can be expanded by linking additional two-port auxiliary units to enhance the sample throughput, forming a four-port or six-port analyzer. All analysis ports can be operated independently and concurrently, enabling users to load and unload samples at any time.
A stable thermal profile along the length of both the saturation pressure and sample tubes can be maintained throughout a lengthy analysis with long-duration dewars and patented isothermal sample tube jackets. Each analysis port can accept a wide variety of sample tube sizes.
Interactive data manipulation, user-selectable data ranges through the graphic interface, user-defined reports, advanced NLDFT modelling, and mercury porosimetry/gas adsorption data overlay capability are all included with the intuitive ASAP 2460 MicroActive software. Dosing options allow the user to change the pressure increment, volume dose increment and equilibration interval time between data points. Instrument performance and maintenance scheduling operations are monitored by an innovative dashboard.
