The DVS Vacuum, from Surface Measurement Systems, allows for the dynamic gravimetric sorption analysis of two gases.
The adsorption of vapors on porous materials is essential and vital within many industries. Traditional gravimetric techniques are based on using a ‘static’ vacuum method. This technique is restricted by the fact that ‘out-gassing’ of the vacuum chamber contents considerably contributes to the measured pressure and hence to the sorption measurements.
Customers can currently enjoy the capability of attaining accurate sorption properties of their materials using gases and solvents using Surface Measurement Systems’ newest DVS Vacuum analyzer.
