The 3Flex is a high-performance adsorption analyzer for measuring surface area, pore size, and pore volume of powders and particulate materials. Standard methods or user customized protocols can be used to characterize adsorbents, catalysts, zeolites, MOFs, APIs, excipients, and a wide variety of porous and non-porous materials. The 3Flex is ideally suited for gas or vapor adsorption analysis of microporous (< 2nm) and mesoporous (2 to 50nm) materials and delivers superior accuracy, resolution and data reduction.
A chemisorption option extends the application range of the 3Flex to both physical and chemical adsorption for characterizing the texture and active surface of catalysts, catalyst supports, sensors and a variety of other materials.
The 3Flex TCD option adds dynamic chemisorption and temperature programmed methods, and further increases the analytical methods available in a single adsorption analyzer. The TCD option adds temperature programmed reduction (TPR), oxidation (TPO), desorption (TPD), and surface reactions (TPSR) to the 3Flex for measuring textural properties and chemisorption. The 3Flex TCD analysis range can be extended with an option for pulse chemisorption with the addition of an automated injection loop. The 3Flex TCD also includes a pulse chemisorption TCD.
Features And Benefits
High Resolution, HighThroughput Physisorption and Chemisorption Instrument
Recognized as the most advanced instrument in the field for material surface characterization . The 3Flex has become a crucial tool for providing high resolution adsorption and desorption isotherms to advance and validate fundamental understanding into development of methodologies and process improvements.
Extend and Increase Your Knowledge
3Flex permits you to optimize experimental parameters to gain greater understanding of your material. The 3Flex has the capability to analyze a sample with 3 separate probe gases simultaneously, one on each analysis port, within a single run.
Extend Your Range of Study
Go beyond micropore and extend your range of resolution to the ultramicroporous level. The advanced transducer technology and vacuum management of the 3Flex permits you to collect adsorption isothems and the pore size distributions for materials with pores as small as 0.3nm.
Optimize Your Material
With the 3Flex you gain valuable information to validate your theories and rationalize the design and synthesis of MOFs, zeolites, activated carbons and other products. Utilize the high throughput results from the 3-port mesopore & micropore design of the 3Flex to rapidly characterize & understand surface area, porosity, and adsorption capacity of your high performance materials.
