ASAP 2060

The Micromeritics® ASAP 2060 provides highly reliable surface area and micropore data in a single-port, smallfootprint platform. This system is designed with an emphasis on affordability and return on investment for you, the user, without compromising the performance or data quality you expect from our family of ASAP products.



Dedicated Micropore and Low-Surface-Area Measurements

The ASAP 2060 is equipped with both 10-mmHg and 0.1-mmHg, high-resolution transducers to permit krypton (low surface area) and micropore measurements, respectively. Increase throughput with the addition of up to three additional units on a shared turbo pumping station, without adding the additional cost of multiple dedicated vacuum systems.

NLDFT* Modeling

This advanced NLDFT method allows users to determine the pore size distribution of the sample over an extended range by means of two isotherms.
*Non Localized Density Functional Theory

  • Six analysis gas inlets and a dedicated helium free space gas inlet provide greater versatility and automated selection of backfill and analyses gases

  • Stainless-steel manifold provides optimized internal volumes and superior vacuum performance for highly accurate measurements of sorbed gas volumes

  • Proprietary transducer system delivers unequalled stability, quick response, and minimized hysteresis resulting in low signal noise and best-in-class accuracy

  • Proven Isothermal Jacket Cold Zone Control provides accurate and reproducible temperature control

  • Up to four instruments can share a single turbo vacuum system with optional manifold kit and software control

With no compromise in performance, the economical ASAP 2060 produces high resolution micropore and low surface area krypton analyses. Choose from dosing options of maximum volume increments or dosing over a specified pressure range.



Zeolites are microporous, alumina silicate minerals commonly used as commercial adsorbents and catalysts. Y-Zeolite is a cracking catalyst. It is used in petroleum refinery catalytic cracking units to increase the yield of gasoline and diesel fuel from crude oil. 13x Zeolite is a synthetically produced microporous molecular sieve used for gas purification, gas separation, sensor technology, etc.


The pore size distribution of γ–Alumina obtained from the BJH model (o–green) is displayed with an overlay of the pore size distribution obtained by mercury intrusion porosimetry. MicroActive allows users to visualize results from physical adsorption, mercury intrusion porosimetry, and chemical adsorption and this provides a convenient platform for the convergence of textural analysis.

  • The ASAP 2060 includes MicroActive for the rapid review and display of the texture of porous materials.

  • With one-click access to important parameters, interaction with adsorption data is direct. By simply moving the range selection bars, the user is immediately updated with new textural properties.

  • Interactive data manipulation minimizes the use of dialog boxes and tunneling of dialogs to specify calculation parameters.

  • A file include and exclude feature provides the ability to overlay up to 25 files including mercury intrusion data and data from competitive instruments.

  • User-selectable data ranges through the graphic interface allow direct modeling for BET, t-Plot, Langmuir, DFT interpretation, and much more. The MicroActive suite provides an extensive selection of NLDFT models for calculating pore size distributions.

  • Report Options editor allows the user to define reports with on-screen previews. Each report processes one summary, tabular, and graphical information pane.

  • Powerful Python programming language allows you to develop extensions to the standard reports available within the ASAP 2060 MicroActive application.

  • Innovative Diagnostic Tests - The ASAP 2060 features a suite of diagnostic tests within the supplied control software. A suite of test procedures and information is provided to monitor and confirm that the instrument is performing optimally.

Calculations can be easily performed and optimized. The selection bars allow for a range of data points to be quickly and easily selected.

Add units to increase throughput:

Sharing a turbo pumping station allows up to up to three additional units without adding the additional cost of multiple dedicated vacuum systems.
