The AccuPyc II 1340
Gas Displacement Density Analyzer




The AccuPyc II 1340 Series Pycnometers are fast, fully automatic pycnometers that provide high-speed, high-precision volume measurements and density calculations on a wide variety of powders, solids, and slurrie shaving volumes from 0.01 to 2000 cm3. The instrument completes most sample analyses in less than three minutes with excellent accuracy. After analyses are started with a few keystrokes, data are collected, calculations are performed, and results displayed without further operator intervention

The AccuPyc II 1340 Density Analyzer consists of an integrated control and analysis module. For those who require high throughput, analysis modules are also available in a single unit configuration, allowing you to attach up to five additional analysis modules to a single controlling unit. Each module has its own gas connection. In addition, each module can contain a different size sample chamber (1 cm3, 10 cm3, 100 cm3, 350 cmor 2000 cm3) providing even more versatility.

Wide Variety of Standard Features

  • Simple calibration process allows the user to determine easily the volume of the instrument sample cell and expansion chambers using a traceable standard volume. After calibration, the cell and expansion chamber volumes are stored automatically.

  • A unique run precision feature increases the precision of analysis results by reporting data from five consecutive measurements that are within a user-specified tolerance. This feature allows early termination of analysis, thereby decreasing the number of cycles needed for accurate results

  • Sample mass may be directly input from an analytical balance through an RS-232 port.

  • USB ports on the rear panel of the control module allow for connection to a printer (output of analysis and calibration results) and keyboard (alphanumeric character input). The USB port is also used for installing software upgrades

  • An Ethernet port on the rear panel of the control module enables the user to e-mail reports, send data to a web browser for archiving, or interface with the AccuPyc II 1340 Windows application.

  • The AccuPyc may be operated in five different languages: English, French, German, Italian, or Spanish.


Wide Variety of Options

  • Optional Windows interface provides exceptional reporting and archiving capability.

  • Integrated control and analysis module can control up to five additional external analysis modules.

  • Five standard sample chamber sizes are available - 1 cm3, 10 cm3, 100 cm3, 350 cm3 and 2000 cm3.

  • MultiVolume Option Kits allow analyses of a variety of sample sizes in one analytical module.

  • Allows measuring of open- and closed-cell foam materials in accordance with ASTM method D 6226.

  • Temperature-control version allows analysis at user-selectable temperatures.

  • Glove box model separates the control and analysis modules, allowing analysis in controlled environments.




A Note About 32- and 64-Bit Windows and Micromeritics' Software
Micromeritics products are designed to operate in most Microsoft Windows  environments. However, more current versions of Microsoft Windows, specifically the 64-bit version of Windows 7, lack some of the services once offered by Microsoft. Because of this, Micromeritics applications will not operate with 64-bit operating systems. Micromeritics software applications are directly compatible with 32-bit version operating systems only. In cases where a 64-bit operating system may be corporate-required or essential for running other software programs, Virtual PC software and a 32-bit operating system should be installed on the host computer (64 bit) as a guest operating system. This will allow proper installation and operation of the Micromeritics application.
