Controlling the density of finished goods is often desirable for performance as well as economic considerations. For this reason, many manufacturers strive to develop materials that are partially porous yet still fulfill their function while others seek an end product of maximum density.
Density influences the overall quality of manufactured products and density measurements guide the manufacturing process. For this reason, Micromeritics gas pycnometers (AccuPyc and GeoPyc) are used worldwide to characterize raw materials as well as to determine the density of finished products.
AccuPyc II 1340 Gas Displacement Pycnometry System
The AccuPyc II 1340 Series Pycnometers are fast, fully automatic pycnometers that provide high-speed, high-precision volume measurements and true density calculations on a wide variety of powders, solids, and slurries. The instrument completes most sample analyses in less than three minutes without sacrificing accuracy. After analyses are started with a few keystrokes, data are collected, calculations are performed, and results displayed. A minimal amount of operator intervention is required.
GeoPyc 1360 Envelope Density Analyzer
The GeoPyc 1360 Envelope Density Analyzer is a revolutionary instrument for rapidly measuring the envelope density of porous objects of irregular size and shape. Envelope density information is useful in characterizing catalysts, structural foams, insulators, ceramics, powder metallurgy objects, and other manufactured goods.
