The ABR is a dedicated breakthrough analyzer, fully automated and supplied with an integrated close-coupled mass spectrometer.
The ABR is available in a range of configurations to suit research-scale samples, with bed volumes from 2 cc to 20 cc. Up to 6 gas inlets are available as well as a dedicated purge stream. Flow rates are selected to suit the specific applications, and the ABR includes an ultra-low dead volume switching valve. Options include an upgrade for operation at pressures to 50 bar, and an integrated vapor generator module for gas-vapor operation.
The ABR is designed to meet the needs of researchers wishing to characterise the gas separation performance of novel materials such as metal-organic frameworks (MOFs), Zeolitic imidazolate frameworks (ZIFs) and covalent organic frameworks (COFs) without the time or expense of synthesising larger quantities of material. The breakthrough data obtained is complementary to the adsorption-desorption isotherms measured with our IGA, IGAsorp, XEMIS and IMI sorption analyzers.
Isotech has always tried to anticipate and accommodate customers’ needs in measurement. These needs are often identical to our own, since we are not only manufacturers of instruments, but also a full scale and accredited calibration laboratory at all levels. We use what we make; we design from our own needs.
Next Generation Products. We have recognized that in recent years many needs for temperature calibration have changed dramatically. Our products have evolved to meet these new needs because the number of calibration laboratories has become much larger, as more stringent quality control has replaced the craftsmans eye, and requirements such as those of ISO 9000, the EN series of standards etc., demand objective validation and proof.
Innovation Isotech is renowned for innovation, with award winning products like the ISOTower ITS-90 Fixed Points, microK Thermometry Bridges, the milliK Precision Thermometer and ISOCAL-6; the multi function calibrator providing Dry Block, Liquid Bath, Surface Sensors, Blackbody and Fixed Point calibration in one piece of apparatus.
Global Network – local support. Isotech has over 90 authorized sales agents worldwide! No matter where you are we can offer local support.
Complete Solutions. Isotech has solutions for all calibration needs, from Primary Laboratories maintaining National Standards to the needs of field engineers calibrating industrial sensors on site. Isotech is truly The Source for Calibration Professionals.
New Users. With the increase in the number of laboratories, we see a shift in laboratory personnel, from a few skilled scientists to technicians and manufacturing engineers who may have no previous experience in temperature calibration and the arcane field of measurement uncertainty.
Benefit. From Isotech’s premier UKAS Calibration Laboratory (ISO/IEC 17025:2005) Many manufacturers of temperature calibration equipment do not operate accredited laboratories. At Isotech we remain unique in that in addition to manufacturing equipment we also operate a full scale UKAS accredited laboratory calibrating both our own equipment and a full range of temperature equipment for our clients, from industrial thermocouples to primary standards.
