Hydrosorb 1000 water vapour sorption analyser:
Water sorption behaviour plays an important role in the manufacture and design of many commonly encountered and advanced materials.
Some examples include:
- PEM fuel cell components
- Drying and storage of grains
- Texture and shelf life of food products
- Stability of pharmaceutical excipients and drug actives
- Mortar, grout and other cementitious materials
- Paper and coatings
- Hydrophobic surface treatments
- Microporous and nanostructured carbons
- Agricultural chemicals
The Hydrosorb 1000 is the new innovation in water sorption characterisation and overcomes these limitations.
Hydrosorb 1000 offers fully automated, rapid measurement of adsorption and desorption water isotherms including BET surface area calculations and heats of adsorption at a price which is just a fraction of the alternative gravimetric methods.
Two models offer analysis temperature ranges of 12deg to 47degC or 12deg to 85degC. Accurate water vapour dosing is made possible by using a unique, heated (100° C) manifold design.
The fully integrated control system provides colour real-time status, graphical data review and reporting functions via built-in colour monitor and printer port.
Data (ASCII format) can be uploaded to a PC via RS232 for importing into popular spreadsheet programs for further manipulation.
Scientific Solutions are the Surface Science instrumentation specialists with a wealth of experience in supplying solutions for research and development and industrial measurement requirements.
