ASAP 2020

The ASAP 2020 is the standard platform for physi-sorption, gas porosimetry, surface area measurements and with accessories – a range of other tests.

The one-port analysis manifold/vacuum system and two-port degas manifold/vacuum system are independent and operate concurrently.

This small point is important, as there is no possibility of vapor cross contamination. It costs more to build, but it is a solid investment.

Like wise, the internal gas lines are all short, with several metal manifolds used to minimise dead volumes, maximise thermal stability and reliability. There are NO needle valves or T pieces.

A unique Micromeritics feature is their use of Isothermal jackets on the sample tubes, rather than elevator control, to minimise Liquid Nitrogen level errors.

 These jackets wick the liquid along the tubes ensureing all parts are at 77.3K.  There is a You Tube video on the backgound to this with Dr. Jeff Kenvin.



  • Two-station intelligent degas system for fully automated degassing with controlled heating time profiles
  • long-duration cryogen system for unattended analyses
  • Twelve gas inlets that are automatically selectable to allow for automated selection of pretreatment, backfill, and analysis gases,
  • and the ability to connect to a mass spectrometer.

New ASAP 2020 version 3.00 software provides options specifically designed to help fuel cell and hydrogen storage researchers.  

This new version provides options specifically designed to help fuel cell and hydrogen storage researchers easily obtain hydrogen adsorption isotherms. Enhancements allow users to collect isotherms by specifying absolute pressure targets, which are commonly used for hydrogen adsorption studies. The ASAP 2020 report system has also been expanded to provide Pressure Composition Isotherms. Tabular reports have been updated to include weight percent adsorbed. All of these upgrades are included to simplify the collection of hydrogen adsorption isotherms and also provide final reports which quickly provide more information to the researcher. Other upgrades to the report system provide substantial benefits for researchers synthesizing mesoporous materials
