Begin analyses with simplicity. The SA-9600 does the rest! The entire analysis is completed without further interaction and avoids the manual steps required with many similar analyzers.
Laboratory bench space is at a premium in most labs. The SA-9600 provides all analysis and preparation stations in one small, well-designed cabinet. No need for additional space for separate analysis and preparation devices as with many alternative analyzers. If expansion is needed, additional stations are added in the same footprint – not by adding more devices which consume more space on the lab bench. The SA-9600 may also be controlled from the built-in computer and keyboard saving additional space in your lab.
No User Calibration Required
To ensure repeatable accuracy, the SA-9600 performs an automatic calibration before every measurement. And from there, the SA-9600 technology eliminates variables otherwise introduced by operator involvement.
Lowest Cost of Ownership
The use of mass flow controllers in some versions of the SA-9600 series automatically create the necessary mixtures of nitrogen and helium for multi-point BET surface area analysis. This lowers the total cost of ownership by eliminating the need to purchase expensive gas mixtures. Straight forward design ensures service costs are minimal compared to more complex, static volumetric technology.
An automated bypass loop and cell detector switch limits the effects of missing or broken sample cells by bypassing the detector when gas flow to the cell stops.
Reliable electronic valves eliminate the need for a compressed air or gas supply to actuate valves during the measurement process, further lowering cost of ownership.
Improved Gas Handling
Thoughtful design of manifold layout and valve selection result in more stable, balanced flow, improving repeatability, lowering maintenance costs, and easing operation.
Robust Dewar Elevator System
A rugged mechanical design means smoother and reliable movement of the Dewar tray that raises and lowers the LN2 Dewars.
The SA-9600 software was designed to be easy as 1, 2, 3.
- Type sample name
- Choose measurement type
- Click "Start"
And in a few minutes the full surface area report will be complete.
View the measurement in real-time to see the auto-calibration, adsorption, and desorption.
Built-in functions allow optimization of system for different sample types.
- Gas concentration of mixed gases may be precisely controlled to give results identical to the multipoint method.
- A wide variety of sample cells are available, allowing measurements to be made on diverse sample types.
Use the feature-rich SA-9600 software to control the unit via USB communication or use the built-in keyboard and display.
Every SA-9600 model includes multiple sample preparation stations (2 or 3 depending on model). For very high throughput environments the SA-9660 accessory provides three additional stations.
