Micromeritics to Showcase New Instruments at Pittcon 2007 - 2/23/2007
Micromeritics AccuPyc II 1340 Series Pycnometers
are fully automatic analyzers that provide high-speed, high-precision volume measurements and density calculations on a wide variety of powders, solids, and slurries having volumes from 0.01 to 350 cm3. For high throughput, an integrated control and analysis module can control up to five additional external analysis modules. Each module can have a different size sample chamber (1 cm3, 10 cm3, 100 cm3, 350 cm3).
The DVVA 4000 Dynamic Void Volume Analyzer, is a state-of-the-art dynamic void volume analyzer capable of measuring the compressed void volume and density of carbon black and other materials with exceptional precision and accuracy. This unique instrument replaces the current oil absorption test used by the carbon industry as predictor of optimal polymer/carbon black ratios in polymer-reinforcing materials. The DVVA 4000 is fully automated with an easy-to-use Windows® XP interface. It requires no manual preparation and is self cleaning. The tests are completed in five minutes without the use of DBP (Dibutyl phthalate). This test is believed to meet all requirements of the ASTM D 7854-16 test method.
The Elzone II 5390 Particle Size Analyzer, utilizes the electrical sensing zone method to size samples without being affected by optical properties, densities, colors, and shapes. The Elzone quickly and accurately determines the size, number, concentration, and mass of a wide variety of organic and inorganic materials. Easy-to-use automated features include: start-up, run, and shut-down routines; blockage detection and clearing; flushing/rinsing; and calibration. The Elzone determines particle size in a range suitable for a wide variety of industrial, biological, and geological specimens. A high level of accuracy, resolution, speed, ease-of-use, and a compact size make the Elzone equally suitable for industry, quality control, and research and development laboratories. .
