DVS Vacuum

Dynamic Vacuum Vapor & Gas Gravimetric Sorption Analyzer

The adsorption of vapors on porous materials is important and vital within numerous industries. Traditional gravimetric methods are based on using a ‘static’ vacuum technique. This method is limited by the fact that ‘out-gassing’ of the vacuum chamber contents significantly contributes to the measured pressure and hence to the sorption measurements.

You can now enjoy the capability of obtaining accurate sorption properties of your materials using solvents and gases using our latest DVS Vacuum analyser.
