ASAP 2020 Plus Accelerated Surface Area and Porosimetry System

The Micromeritics ASAP 2020 Plus is a powerful, bench-top instrument that integrates various automated gas sorption techniques. Materials analysis laboratories can meet their ever-increasing analytical requirements using the Micromeritics ASAP 2020 Plus. The system provides high-quality porosity, surface area, physisorption, and chemisorption isotherm data. Two samples can be prepared simultaneously while the third one is analyzed, with the use of two independent vacuum systems. This optimizes personnel productivity and returns on time invested by customers.

The highly versatile system helps users to meet their specific requirements, thanks to its ability to handle a wide range of applications. ASAP products are installed worldwide and are the instruments of choice for researchers demanding accurate, high-quality gas adsorption data.


Key features of the Micromeritics ASAP 2020 Plus include:

Advanced Capabilities through Optional Configurations

The ASAP 2020 Plus can readily be configured to the specific needs of the user, with the option of upgrading at a later date to meet changing analytical requirements. This option maximizes both the utility of the equipment and the return on the customer’s investment.

The choice of configurations includes low surface area, micropore capability and heated vapor. A cryostat or an external detector can also be added. The unit can be configured for enhanced chemical resistance when handling aggressive vapors. The ASAP 2020 Plus allows a single instrument to accommodate virtually any surface characterization requirement of a laboratory.

Unique and Innovative Isothermal Jacket Cold Zone Control

The use of isothermal jackets not only ensures a uniform thermal profile across the full length of the sample and saturation pressure (P°) tubes but is also guaranteed for the service life of the instrument.

Design Versatility

  • It is possible to configure the ASAP 2020 Plus with many optional accessories to fulfill the specific analytical requirements of users.
  • A stable thermal environment can be achieved for both saturation pressure and adsorption, with unique and patented Isothermal Jacket Cold Zone and continuous saturation pressure (P°) monitoring, allowing users to spend time obtaining results rather than on controlling temperature variations.
