Instruments, a leading manufacturer of materials characterization instruments,
announces the launch of the new PentaFoam 5200e. The PentaFoam builds on the
reputation of the existing Quantachrome Pentapyc and UltraFoam pycnometers -
combining the multiple sample capability of the former with the foam analyzing
capability of the latter.
Fully automated analysis sequences are programmed using the built-in keypad,
or from your PC using a standard browser... no special software needed! Analyses
are made according to ASTM D6226, "Standard Test Method for Open Cell Content
of Rigid Cellular Plastics". The PentaFoam offers both both uncorrected-
and corrected-for-cutting methods. The PentaFoam also includes multi-lingual
capability, USB flash (thumb) drive data transfer, ethernet connectivity, a
USB printer port and standard true-density measurement mode for polymer pellets,
pigments, fillers and other compounding solids.
