The ASAP 2460 Surface Area and Porosimetry Analyzer incorporates a unique expandable system designed for high performance and high sample throughput. The base ASAP 2460 is a two-port master control unit. For more throughput, additional two-port auxiliary units can be connected to the master unit expanding the system to either a four-port or six-port analyzer. The instrument also includes intuitive MicroActive software that combines user-defined reports with the ability to interactively evaluate isotherm data.

All analysis ports can be operated independently and concurrently, allowing the user to load and unload samples at any time, regardless of the analysis stage. A new analysis can begin as soon as another is finished.
An analysis of up to 60 hours can be performed without refilling the dewar. This allows unattended analysis of high-resolution adsorption/desorption isotherms that take much longer to complete because the system must equilibrate at each data point.
With a master unit and two auxiliary units, BET surface area analyses utilizing six parallel runs can be achieved in as little as 30 minutes.
Servo control for dosing and evacuation provides a higher degree of gas management and speeds collection of data points.
Up to five different nonreactive adsorptives, plus an additional gas for free space, can be attached to the analyzer simultaneously. Each analysis port can accept a range of sample tube sizes.
Long-duration dewars and patented isothermal jackets assure a stable thermal profile along the length of both the sample and saturation pressure (Po ) tubes throughout lengthy analyses. The Po value can be entered, or measured either continuously or at selected intervals.
Intuitive MicroActive software combines user-defined reports with the ability to interactively evaluate isotherm data, reducing the time required to obtain surface area and porosity results. User-selectable data ranges through the graphic interface allow direct modeling for BET, t-Plot, Langmuir, DFT interpretation, and new advanced NLDFT methods.
