Micromeritics Gas Pycnometer

The AccuPyc II 1340 Gas Displacement Density Analyzer
The AccuPyc II 1340 Series Pycnometers are fast, fully automatic pycnometers that provide high-speed, high-precision volume measurements and density calculations on a wide variety of powders, solids, and slurrie shaving volumes from 0.01 to 350 cm3. The instrument completes most sample analyses in less than three minutes with excellent accuracy. After analyses are started with a few keystrokes, data are collected, calculations are performed, and results displayed without further operator intervention.

The AccuPyc II 1340 Density Analyzer consists of an integrated control and analysis module. For those who require high throughput, analysis modules are also available in a single unit configuration, allowing you to attach up to five additional analysis modules to a single controlling unit. Each module has its own gas connection. In addition, each module can contain a different size sample chamber (1 cm3, 10 cm3, 100 cm3, or 350 cm3) providing even more versatility.

Wide Variety of Standard Features:
  • Simple calibration process allows the user to determine easily the volume of the instrument sample cell and expansion chambers using a traceable standard volume. After calibration, the cell and expansion chamber volumes are stored automatically.
  • A unique run precision feature increases the precision of analysis results by reporting data from five consecutive measurements that are within a user-specified tolerance. This feature allows early termination of analysis, thereby decreasing the number of cycles needed for accurate results.
  • Sample mass may be directly input from an analytical balance through an RS-232 port.
  • USB ports on the rear panel of the control module allow for connection to a printer (output of analysis and calibration results) and keyboard (alphanumeric character input). The USB port is also used for installing software upgrades.
  • An Ethernet port on the rear panel of the control module enables the user to e-mail reports, send data to a web browser for archiving, or interface with the AccuPyc II 1340 Windows application.
  • The AccuPyc may be operated in five different languages: English, French, German, Italian, or Spanish.
