Water sorption kinetics, and vapor uptake are characteristics of interest to material scientists interested in exploring how vapor sorption impacts material characteristics, shelf life, performance, and stability. Vapor sorption behavior plays an important role in the development, use, and stability of many common and advanced materials. These characteristics cross a wide variety of material types, applications, and industries.
• Drying and storage of grains.
• Texture and shelf life of food products.
• PEM fuel cell components.
• Mortar, grout and other cementitious materials.
• Paper and coatings.
• Hydrophobic surface treatments.
• Microporous and nanostructured carbons.
• Ceramics and fired clay.
• Organic vapor sorption
Autosorb iQ with Vapor OptionManometric (static, volumetric) analyzer for gas and vapor physisorption measurements. Typical vapors include water, alcohols, and aromatics. The vapor generator is housed within the manifold chamber... heated and thermostatically controlled. A solenoid valve opens the pump ballast for all-important venting of condensible vapors. The vapor option is available on all models of the Autosorb-iQ, one- and two-station versions. more...
