Density determination

Density determination

Analyte:

  • Powders
  • Solids (unregular shaped samples)
  • Nonvolatile liquids

           
Applications:         

  • Determination of bulk density of solids
  • Determination of true density of liquids
  • If true density is known, calculation of closed porosity of the sample

                                                          
Technical Equipment:         

Gas pycnometer AccuPyc II (Micromeritics Instrument Corporation) + Multivolume Option up to 100 cm3

  • Measuring volume from 0.01 cm³ to 100 cm³
  • Special inserts for sample chamber with 10 cm³ and 35 cm³
  • Adjustable operating temperature by Peltier-Element in the range of 15 -35 °C (+/-0,1°C)

Analyte:         

  • Solids (even unregular shaped samples and samples with density < 1 g/cm³)
  • Nonvolatile liquids

           
Applications:

  • Determination of bulk density and open porosity of solids
  • Determination of true density of liquids
  • If true density is known, calculation of closed and total porosity of the sample
