Nova: Surface Pore and Area Analyzer

The Nova series from Anton has been specifically developed to offer operational simplicity and velocity – speed in the unwavering direction of accuracy – throughout the complete analysis process.

The DSA 5000 M consists of four degassing stations and also up to four analysis stations, and thus provides four 5-point BETs in 20 mins, with 2% reproducibility. Users can follow the analysis workflow to learn how Nova offers peerless advantages right from start to finish and sets a new standard in surface area and pore characterization.

Benefits

Sample Preparation

All-in-One

  • The entire packing is available in one space-saving design
  • Degassing isolated from the analysis: no contamination possible
  • Just one vacuum pump and one set of gas connections are required

Programmable

  • Degassing is entirely automated. Users can just choose a profile
  • No need for timers or operator intervention
  • Users can set up multiple temperature set points and ramp rates

Fully Capable

  • Vacuum or flow degassing ranges up to 425 °C
  • Users can shift easily between flow and vacuum methods
  • Allows preparation of an extensive range of sample materials

Traceable

  • Manual input or recording is not required
  • Degassing profile tracked automatically to the sample ID
  • Sample ID tracks weight loss following degassing

Method Selection

20+ Profiles

  • Decreases setup time of instrument
  • Improved speed while guaranteeing conformance
  • ISO, ASTM, USP, ISO techniques included — users can just select and go

Analysis Velocity

Power of 4 + 4
