Fully automated high-resolution gas sorption analyzer possessing three sample ports (analysis station) and four sample preparation ports (outgassing station). Includes a turbo-molecular drag pump and low-pressure transducers (10 and 1 Torr) for measurement of adsorption behavior at pressures required for low surface area measurements (requires krypton) and to observe the filling of micropores.

One port is available as a chemisorption station, complete with a high-temperature (1100C) furnace coupled with fan-assisted cooling, and a digital temperature controller for precise chemisorption measurements. Includes automated gas switching, in-situ and/or separated sample preparation.

A vapor dosing option is available for both physi - and chemi- sorption analysis and features a 50C thermostatted manifold chamber. Typical vapors include water, alcohols, and aromatics which can impact material characteristics, shelf life, performance, and stability.

Also, our Autosorb iQ is integrated with a thermal conductivity detector (TCD) & cold trap option and includes electronic loop injection. TCD enables to perform temperature programmed methods TPR (temperature-programed reaction)/ TPD (temperature-programed desorption)/ TPO (temperature-programed oxidation) and pulse chemisorption analyses for use with a wide-range of gases. The included, automatic loop injector allows for easy pulse titration analyses as well as peak calibration activities.
