Integrated sample preparation simplifies your process
Eliminate the clutter, cost, and complexity of external degassing devices with four integrated degassing stations and up to four analysis stations in one space-saving design. Prepare a range of samples with vacuum or flow degassing at temperatures up to 425 ºC. Degassing is software programable and linked with an individual sample ID, ensuring full traceability.
Speed up your surface area and pore size analysis with NOVA Mode
Utilize pre-calibrated sample cells – no need to measuring void volumes before every analysis – and accelerate your analysis speeds while maintaining a high level of measurement precision.
TruZone – active coolant level control
With TruZone, create and maintain a small cold zone on the sample cell and maximize the measurement sensitivity of your surface area and pore size analyzer. Increased sensitivity when measuring gas molecules that are adsorbed by the sample results in exceptional measurement performance. Nova instruments deliver better than 2 % reproducibility with as low as 2 m2 total surface area in the sample cell. This best-in-class performance lets you measure materials with specific surface areas as low as 0.01m2/g.
Suite of smart dosing algorithms for effortless method creation
Intelligent dosing algorithms, such as DoseWizard, VectorDose, and Initial Fill, simplify the creation of analysis profiles to accelerate analyses without sacrificing precision. In combination with the 20+ built-in analysis profiles for standardized methods like ASTM, ISO, USP, and DIN, our surface area and pore size analyzer delivers operational simplicity from start to finish.
