Micromeritics Instrument Corp. offers the new AccuPyc gas pycnometer, featuring technology that makes it a fast, easy, accurate system for measurement of true density.

Solid density is important to characterize many solid materials. Porous, particulate, and irregularly shaped solids are difficult to measure accurately by traditional methods, but gas pycnometry provides a reliable measurement of true density.

Every AccuPyc features new AccuTemp thermoelectric temperature control. Temperature stability within ±0.025°C enhances measurement repeatability and reduces analysis time. Analyses can be performed in 30% less time than other pycnometers. An analysis temperature range of 4°C to 60°C –empower users to measure density at their process temperature, whether replicating refrigerated biopharmaceutical storage or elevated-temperature manufacturing.

A new hinged, self-aligning lid provides frustration-free operation and constant chamber volume, ensuring reproducibility. The new Breeze touchscreen interface provides intuitive instrument control and results review for users with any level of experience. The integrated MIC Net centralizes density data across the lab, including forward compatibility with existing AccuPyc systems. An analysis volume range from 100 to 0.1 cu cm permits large volumes that eliminate sampling error in heterogenous materials through low volumes that conserve scarce materials. These features, plus new capabilities like PowderSafe mode and the stored Method Library, make the AccuPyc easy to operate.
