NOVAtouch

BET Surface Area and Pore Size Analyzers


The NOVAtouch provides the next generation of NOVA analyzer performance and features. It delivers performance improvements along with a touch-sensitive, multi-functional colour screen. Performance gains are offered in two configurations: the Standard and the Advanced LX models. Each model is available in 1-to-4 analysis station versions and compatible with multiple gases.

Increased speed results from new dosing algorithms and additional pressure transducers. Continuous Po measurements improve precision and resolution for detailed pore size analysis. Cold zone volume minimization yields superior analysis sensitivity using an advanced level sensor. Also, the new touchscreen provides real time data displays and gives easy access to all instrument functions.

  • Perform fully automated multi-point BET analysis in as little as eight minutes.
  • Eliminate the need for helium with patented NO Void Analysis™ (NOVA) technology.
  • Analyze up to 200 data points (100 adsorption points and 100 desorption points).
  • Prepare four samples by flow methods simultaneously with sample analysis.
  • Access degasser during analysis to start / stop flow degassing.
  • View data “on the fly” locally on the color touchscreen.
  • Eliminate cell calibration with classical helium-void-volume mode.
  • Transfer data via Ethernet connection.
  • Enhance performance with Windows®-compatible software.
  • Verify performance with rapid calibration check.

 

TouchWin Software

TouchWin is a PC based program for operation of the NOVAtouch series of instruments utilizing the familiar features of the Microsoft Windows operating system. NOVAtouch operators will find this to be a user-friendly, graphical environment to work in.

TouchWin incorporates Quantachrome Instruments many years of experience in particle analysis through the inclusion of our extensive methods of data reduction and report generation in this versatile software package.

  • PC based degas and analysis protocol generation, download, and control of NOVAtouch analysis.
  • View isotherms and BET calculations in “real-time” during analysis.
  • Store analysis configurations for fast recall.
  • Compatible with virtually any printer via Windows operating system.
  • Zoom into any part of a graph and perform a linear best fit for any set of data points.
