|Full Name of the
|Surface Area & Pore Size Analyzer|
|Specification||• No. of analysis stations: 1
• Measurement types: B.E.T., STSA, adsorption isotherm, desorption isotherm
• Surface area range: 0.01 m2 /g to no known upper limit
• Pore size range: 0.35 to 500 nm (3.5 to 5000 Å)
• Adsorbates: Nitrogen and other non-corrosive gases
|Working Principle||The adsorption/desorption isotherms and pore volumes of the adsorbents were determined by nitrogen adsorption–desorption isotherms, measured at 77 K using Quanta chrome Nova 1200e system. The samples were degassed at 200°C under vacuum before starting N2 adsorption. Surface area and pore volumes (or pore size distribution) were determined using the Brunauer–Emmet–Teller (BET) equation, Barret–Joyner–Halenda (BJH) and DFT methods respectively.
The analyser measures surface area, pore sizes, Total pore volume,pore size distribution of materials.
|Applications||Carbon: For rubber, adsorbents (gas separation and water purification), gas masks, inks, laser printers and copiers.
Catalysts: For the automotive, fertilizer, fuel cell and petrochemical industries.
Organic Materials: For adhesives, chromatography, cosmetics, foodstuffs,
detergents, explosives, ion exchange resins, pharmaceuticals and plastics.
Minerals: Such as alumina, clays, hydroxyapatite, pigments, phosphates, silicas, zirconia, etc., used for abrasives, adsorbents, biomaterials, ceramics, cements, desiccants, fillers, papers and paints.
Powdered Metals and Ferrites: For batteries, pressure formed/sintered products, electronics,
magnets and magnetic tape.
