Micromeritics Instrument Corp. introduces the GeoPyc 1365 envelope density analyzer. The GeoPyc 1365 is the next generation of the GeoPyc envelope density analyzers that have been in use for many years by researchers and engineers worldwide.

Featuring an improved user interface, the GeoPyc 1365 uses an intelligent touch-screen for control and reporting functions. Optionally, the user can also choose to work with the GeoPyc 1365 through a locally connected, standard web browser for full functionality and control. Popular with roller compaction operations, the GeoPyc is an excellent tool to obtain solid fraction information.

The GeoPyc automatically determines the volume and density of a solid object by displacement The GeoPyc employs a unique displacement measurement technique that uses Dry Flo, a quasi-fluid composed of small, rigid spheres having a high degree of flowability. The sample is placed in a bed of Dry Flo, which is agitated and gently consolidated about the sample. The GeoPyc collects the displacement data, performs the calculations, and displays or prints the results. The method is fully automated, non-destructive, and provides results in less than 15 minutes.

An available (early 2017) T.A.P option permits the GeoPyc 1365 to provide TAP density results that closely correlate to traditional TAP density measurement devices in less time, with no noise and a noticeable improvement in reproducibility and repeatability.

“The GeoPyc 1365 is our next step in Micromeritics unique and highly regarded approach to envelope density measurement. This technology, exclusive to Micromeritics, has proven itself the preferred means to obtain envelope density along with TAP density in Roller Compaction operations as well as other industrial applications,” explained Preston Hendrix, president of Micromeritics.

The new design features a reduced operating foot-print, increase ruggedness for at-line operations in commercial manufacturing locations, enhanced visual indicators for stage of operation, and two USB data ports for data export or software updates.

“Our customers continue to challenge us to improve,” said Jeff Sherman, VP of sales and business development at Micromeritics. “We take that challenge very seriously and know to be an industry leader we must continue to deliver innovative solutions, not just products to help our customers succeed, and the GeoPyc 1365 is yet another example of our commitment to do so.”
