We’re pleased to announce the all-new Micromeritics Breakthrough Analyser, a system for the precise characterization of adsorbent performance under process-relevant conditions. Combining Micromeritics’ widely recognized expertise in gas adsorption with its microreactor and pilot plant technology, the BTA delivers reliable, selective adsorption data for gas/vapor mixtures. A highly efficient tool for evaluating the performance of next generation adsorbents, the BTA is particularly valuable for researchers working in fields such as gas separation, storage and purification, carbon dioxide capture and energy storage.
The BTA incorporates patented high performance blending valves, precision mass flow controllers and optional vapor sources. The resulting gas delivery system has minimal dead volume and ensures the precise control of both composition and flow rate. Adsorbent is held in a column that uses only 0.05 – 2.5 g of sample per measurement. A thermostated environmental chamber provides accurate, uniform temperature control of all components, up to 200°C, with no cold spots. Automated sample activation and adsorption studies can be performed at temperatures up to 1,050°C with the precise resistance furnace. Sequenced and cyclic experiments are easily programmed. Operating pressures can be controlled from atmospheric to 30 bar via a back-pressure valve. The gas detection system and other features are readily customized for the application(s) of interest.
