Micromeritics ASAP 2020

Location: 2510 GG Brown Connector

The ASAP 2020 (Accelerated Surface Area and Porosimetry System) provides versatility in gas selection and high vacuum for high-resolution low surface area measurements. It utilizes the principle of physical adsorption to obtain adsorption and desorption isotherms and information about the surface area and porosity of a solid material. It performs surface area analyses plus pore size and pore volume distributions, typically using nitrogen as the standard gas. It calculates BET and Langmuir surface areas, average and total pore volume, BJH pore size distribution and performs micro-pore analysis. It employs a range of standard theories for the calculation such as Horvath-Kawazoe, Dubinin-Radushkevich, Dubinin-Astakov, t-plot, MP-method, BET, Langmuir and Density Functional Theory.
