Micromeritics’ 3Flex surface characterization analyzer is an automated, three-station instrument capable of high-throughput surface area, mesopore, and micropore analyses with high accuracy, resolution, and data reduction. Each analysis station is upgradeable from mesopore to micropore with its own transducers for current or future high-throughput needs. Micropore ports include krypton capability for low surface area materials. A vapor option is also available.
The 3 Flex features servo control for dosing and evacuation, which provides a high degree of gas management and speed the collection of data points through reduction of dosing overshoot. Pneumatically actuated, hard seal valves provide ultraclean, leak-free instrument operation. Stainless steel gas inlets, VCR fittings, manifold, and gaskets eliminate interference from contaminates and outgassing associated with elastomer seals and o-rings. These chemically resistive surfaces also allow the use of a greater selection of adsorptives.
The 3Flex also includes enhanced software capabilities, data reduction features, and instrument monitoring.
