The BELSORP MAX II is a versatile instrument which measures specific surface area/pore size distribution, vapor adsorption and chemisorption.

OVERVIEW

The BELSORP MAX II analyzer allows for comprehensive surface characterization such as micropore analysis by measuring adsorption isotherms from extremely low pressure, or hydrophilicity/hydrophobicity by water vapor adsorption.

PRODUCT FEATURES

  • Highest throughput thanks to simultaneous measurement of up to 4 samples
  • New advanced GDO function permits optimum gas dosing
  • The most suitable measurement conditions are automatically set based on the user’s stored adsorption isotherm data
  • An advanced system of direct evacuation and intelligent valve control reduces the measurement time significantly
  • High precision vapor adsorption measurement under strict temperature control
  • High precision measurement by Advanced Free Space Measurement (AFSMTM)
  • Automatic LN2 supply and a dedicated heater enable fully automatic seamless process control from pre-treatment to measurement
  • With advanced GCMC method: allows to perform more precise and higher resolution PSD analysis, considering the interaction of actual material surface and adsorbate molecules, than the conventional NLDFT (approx. calculation) method
  • The measurement process status and the results can be checked by remote monitoring function using an e-mail system
