Dear customers, partners and readers,

coming from an enormous successful year 2016, QUANTACHROME starts into 2017 with new ideas and projects. As projected a year ago, we have presented many instrument and application news. The ChemStar for characterisation of catalysts, the dynaSorb for application-oriented study of technical adsorbents and iSORB and VSTAR for high-pressure and vapor sorption are some highlights for surface and pore characterisation. However also in the characterisation of dispersions we have been very successful in 2016: CILAS laser granulometers for particle sizing have been actively inquired and the analysers of the TURBISCAN-, RHEOLASER- and DT-instrument groups have found more and more satisfied customers for the studies of emulsions and concentrated slurries. Simply contact info@quantachrome.de for further information, check our homepage or the homepages of our partner companies or download our lab catalogue for contract analyses under dates and downlowds – we solve your applications in highest result and interpretation quality in our Laboratory for Scientific Particle Analysis (LabSPA)!  

A good start into 2017, happy new year, health and success! We thank you for your collaboration and interest, and are looking forward to many new and interesting discussions,

Your QUANTACHROME-Team

Rheology with the new FLUIDICAM Rheo

FORMULACTION is proud to introduce a brand new instrument, combining microfluidic and optics, dedicated to rheology measurements. The FLUIDICAM RHEO automatically plots flow curves as a function of temperature and shear rates with high precision and repeatability.
Amongst the main advantages of this technique:
- Very low sample volume required ;
- Extremely accurate even at low viscosity ;
- Very wide shear rate range...

Stability of emulsions: the new TURBISCAN TOWER 

Test the fully automatic stability analysis of emulsions without impact on the original sample: The TURBISCAN TOWER also allows analysis of emulsions, for which it was impossible so far:
- measuring principle without centrifugation or other sample varying forces
- recording and quantification of sedimentation, creaming or coalescence in the emulsion
- opaque emulsions are characterized excellently by survey of backscattered light
- automatic calculation of TURBISCAN Stability Index
- automatic ranking of similar samples
- six standalone measuring units et al.
By clicking on TURBISCAN TOWER you can download the brochure, upon request you can test it free of charge and get to know it!

LabSPA (Laboratory for Scientific Particle Analysis) offers new opportunities for method developmentsand contract analyses

In case you have unsolved application problems in the field of Characterization of dispersions, powders and porous solids QUANTACHROME offers new “package solutions” for testing your samples by use of complementary analytical methods. Contact info@quantachrome.de with short description of your application problem and the LabSPA does not only answer with a proposal what we recommend, but also WHY...

Examples for new opportunities in the LabSPA are

- check if your product is nano or not nano according the EU-definition

- characterisation of technical adorbents by breakthrough curves of gas or vapor mixtures

- measurements of the stability of orginal emulsions 

- µ-rheology by use of the RHEOLASER in bulk to characterise the end-use properties & gel point of any soft materials

Don't hesitate to contact info@quantachrome.de to come in contact with our experts in the different fields of the comprehensive characterisation of dispersions, poweders and porous solids.

dynaSorb BT – the praxis test for gas adsorption studies in the lab

The BET surface area is an important parameter for the characterisation of adsorbents, however what does that mean for the real adsorption of various gases?

The knowledge of the pore size distribution of porous materials is important for comparison and new developments – but as examples, is it possible to predict the adsorption of methane from biogas or of carbon dioxide from air from that knowledge?

How is the sorption kinetics of microporous adsorbents? How much of one component can be adsorbed by an adsorbent bed, before a “breakthrough” of this component reach the outlet of the adsorber column? How can the heat balance of the adsorption process of your samples be determined in practice?

Such questions are to answer by practical relevant measurements only, and this is the field for the new developed dynaSorb BT from Quantachrome! The dynaSorb BT offers new ways to study the dynamic sorption of gas flows and gas mixtures in bench-scale. Few of these you can find on this homepage under Analytical instruments/dynaSorb BT, but don’t hesitate to contact us for a complete list of specifications and a professional discussion of your adsorption requests.

Quantachrome VSTAR: Water and Organic Vapor Sorption Analyzer

The VSTAR vapor sorption analyzer goes beyond water sorption to provide vapor sorption analysis using a wide variety of organic vapors at a wide range of temperatures and one to four analysis ports. Meticulous control of the manifold temperature from the vapor source to the sample eliminates the possibility of local condensation of the adsorptive and ensures the most accurate analysis possible.

The VSTAR measures complete adsorption-desorption isotherms, that is the quantitative uptake of vapor as a function of relative pressure / relative humidity at a user selectable, thermostaticallycontrolled temperature. Such measurements are of critical importance to material scientists developing adsorption based technologies. For more information you can contact info@quantachrome.de or you can check www.quantachrome.com!

QUANTACHROME starts into the new year with analyzer QUADRASORB evo:
 
New analyzer QUADRASORB evo offers new possibilities for BET measurements concerning speed and sample throughput. Combination of the new QuickMode with flexible analysis ports (separate dewars!) provides unexpected flexibility and enormous sample throughput. A new feauture consists of a dedicated transducer for measurement of Po (adsorbate saturated vapor pressure), so that continually measuring Po does not slow down analysis capabilities.
QUADRASORB evo is available with 2, 3 or 4 analysis ports. Thereby it offers an optimal price-performance ratio and can be upgraded to maximum 4 analysis ports at any time if needed later on.
