ASAP2020 configurations

In addition to the standard high performance features, ASAP2020 systems can also be configured from the factory for High Vacuum (Krypton), Micropore, High-Definition, Chemi and with special accessories like Chilled Dewar, Dry Vacuum pumps and water vapour sources (photos below).  Most of these facilities can also be added to existing systems in an upgrade.

High Vac Option
When equipped with a 10-mmHg transducer and a high vacuum pump, the standard system becomes a High Vac system. This system provides the low-pressure capability and pressure-measurement resolution required for low surface area analyses using krypton as the adsorptive.

Micropore Option
The High Vac system upgraded with a 1-mmHg transducer becomes the powerful Micropore system. The Micropore system delivers accurate porosity data on pores between 0.35 and 3 nanometers and provides a comprehensive selection of micropore reports.

Chemisorption Option
A chemisorption upgrade added to a High Vac or Micropore system provides surface characterization analysis of catalytic materials. An integrated mass spectrometer port is included.

Enhanced Chemical Resistance Option
The ASAP 2020’s stainless-steel manifold is available with chemically resistant Kalrez seals to support analyses using aggressive gases or vapors as the adsorptive. This option is ideal for experiments with unsaturated hydrocarbons such as benzene and toluene

Vapor Option 

Volumetric studies using water vapor as the adsorptive can also be performed on any ASAP 2020 with the optional water vapor accessory fitted to the side port.

ASAP 2020 HD
Wider pressure measurement capabilities for the ASAP 2020 HD allow isotherm measurements to start an order of magnitude lower in pressure than previous ASAP instruments. This new low pressure capability (when fitted with a 0.1 Torr transducer) provides more resolution and new options for materials with micropores like metal organic frameworks MOF, activated carbons, and zeolites.
