HORIBA SA-9600V2 Series BET Multipoint Surface Area Analyzers
The SA-9600 series of surface area analyzers brings exceptional speed and convenience to BET surface area analysis. Now you can perform ultra-fast single-point surface area measurements or multi-point with push-button ease.
These tools use the flowing gas method to acquire gas adsorption and desorption curves. This information is then used to calculate total surface area according to the well known BET theory. The advantage of the flowing gas method is most evident in single-point mode as up to thirty sample analyses can be performed per hour.
The patented SA-9600 technology provides routine total surface area determination in as little as two to six minutes.
The SA-9600 Series offers a full line of high-quality, high-performance BET Surface Area Analyzers with four fully automatic analyzers to meet the needs of any research or quality assurance laboratory. The SA-9600 Series analyzers include:
- SA-9601: One sample analysis station, two sample preparation stations.
- SA-9601MP: One sample analysis station, two sample preparation stations, MFC gas mixture control and multi-point analysis.
- SA-9603: Three sample analysis stations, three sample preparation stations.
- SA-9603MP: Three sample analysis stations, three sample preparation stations, MFC gas mixture control and multi-point analysis.
- SA-9660: Three sample preparation stations.
- Automatic Calibration
To ensure repeatable accuracy, the SA-9600 performs an automatic calibration before every measurement. And because it's fully automated, the SA-9600 technology eliminates variables otherwise introduced by operator involvement.
- Lowest Cost of Ownership
The use of mass flow controllers in all versions of the SA-9600 series automatically create the necessary mixtures of nitrogen and helium for BET surface area analysis. This lowers the total cost of ownership by eliminating the need to purchase expensive gas mixtures. Additionally, service costs are minimal compared to static volumetric technology and the SA-9600 doesn't require difficult calibration.
- NEW Detector Protection
An automated bypass loop and cell detector switch limits the effects of missing and broken sample cells by bypassing the detector when gas flow to the cell stops.
- NEW Electronic Valves
Modern electronic valves eliminate the need for a compressed air or gas supply to actuate valves during the measurement process, further lowering cost of ownership.
- NEW Improved Gas Handling
A number of internal improvements to tubing layout and valve selection result in more stable, balanced flow, improving repeatability, lowering maintenance costs, and easing operation.
- NEW Robust Tray Movement
Improved mechanical design means smoother movement of the tray that lifts and lowers the LN2 dewars.
Functions allow optimization of system for different sample types.
- High Throughput
Every SA-9600 model includes multiple sample preparation stations (2 or 3 depending on model). For very high throughput environments the SA-9660 accessory provide three additional stations.
