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.
The SA-9600 software was designed to be easy as 1, 2, 3.
- Type sample name
- Choose measurement type
- Click "Start"
Simply follow the three steps above and in a few minutes the full surface area report will be ready for the operator.
View the measurement in real-time to see the auto-calibration, adsorption, and desorption.
Functions allow optimization of system for different sample types.
- Input exact concentration of mixed gas to choose the correct concentration of adsorbate to give results identical to the multipoint method.
- Ability to use many different adsorbates in addition to nitrogen, such as, argon, krypton, carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide and other non-corrosive gases.
- 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 keypad 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 provide three additional stations.
