Quantachrome Instruments releases new surface area analyser

July 19, 2017

Quantachrome’s AutoFlow BET+™ system


Quantachrome Instruments, Florida, USA, a supplier of instruments for laboratories involved in the research, development and manufacture of new materials in numerous industries, has announced the release of a new surface area analyser, the Autoflow BET+. According to Quantachrome, the automatic surface area analyser is designed for high speed, high throughput analyses of powders and porous materials. 

Using micro-electronics and proprietary sensors, the company states that it has successfully developed a compact bench-top unit suitable for modern analytical laboratories. Reportedly offering less vacuum pump noise and fewer oil issues, the Autoflow BET+ is capable of preparing and analysing multiple samples at a time, and allows uers to monitor the progress of measurements on mobile and desktop devices. 

Quantachrome has stated that it believes the new tool’s capabilities will be appreciated by dynamic industrial QA/QC and central analytical labs in catalysis, ceramics and powder metals, and by pharmaceutical laboratories with a large number of samples to be tested each day. Users are also expected to benefit from the Autoflow BET+’s rapid-start-up time, simplicity of operation and low operating costs.

Eric Gelman, Quantachrome’s Global Director of Sales and Marketing, commented, “The Autoflow BET+ is the result of our engineers and scientists re-imagining and re-engineering what a rapid surface area analyser can be – modular, exceptionally fast, calibration-free. We believe it will be equally appreciated by industry for both traditional and cutting-edge engineered materials, and also in the university environment because of its rigorous adherence to the underlying scientific principles of the measurement.”
