Background

Particle Technology Labs is a premier service laboratory, dedicated to quality particle size and characterization. Our services include but are not limited to: 

Surface Area/Pore Size Distribution

A variety of different techniques are used at PTL to characterize the surface area and pore size of samples. Krypton, Nitrogen and Liquid mercury are utilized to measure a wide range of surface areas.

Static Pressure

Pure adsorbate gas is introduced to the sample at known volumes and pressures so as to determine the surface area and pore distribution.

Static Pressure Instrumentation Available

Particle Technology Labs has the following static pressure determination equipment available:

  • Quantachrome Autosorb 1
  • Quantachrome Autosorb 3B
