Three New Products for Quantachrome at PITTCON

Quantachrome Instruments, a leading manufacturer of materials characterization instruments, will unveil three new products at the forthcoming Pittcon 2008 Exposition in New Orleans early March.

A new Cryostat, developed jointly with the renowned cryogenics experts Oxford Instruments, will be seen publicly for the first time.  This compact and precision cooling device will allow researchers to easily perform gas sorption studies at any temperature between 77K and 200K (-320F and -100F) using only liquid nitrogen as the cryogen.

A new chemisorption analyzer for characterizing catalysts, the Chembet Pulsar TPR/TPD, takes center stage.The "Pulsar" features full automation of temperature programmed methods of analysis known as TPR, TPD and TPO, and of active metal area determination by pulse titration.  Automatic gas switching and active furnace cooling are standard.

The popular Ultrapycnometer 1000 (automatic gas pycnometer for the determination of density of solids) gets connected!  This latest generation, the 1000e, features ethernet connectivity, USB ports and a more powerful onboard microprocessor.

Quantachrome will also be showcasing two new customer support programs.  The "XL Knowledge Transfer Program" celebrates Quantachrome's 40th Anniversary by offering American industry customized seminars focussed on porous materials characterization, using the wealth of scientific knowledge and practical skills available from its core of senior scientists.  And a new suite of Service and Maintenance plans ("Silver", "Gold" and Platinum") has been created to offer USA customers timely and cost-effective long-term care of their Quantachrome instruments.

Quantachrome will be exhibiting on booth 1955 during the entire Pittcon expo, where qualified staff will be available to answer questions about both these new and existing products and services.
