The AMI-300Lite is a fully automated, atmospheric pressure system. Through software control, it can switch gas streams, control gas flow rates, control temperature and temperature ramps, and collect desorption data in order to quantify the adsorption and desorption of gas molecules for a catalyst surface.
To improve the quality of data, the AMI-300Lite utilizes a high-precision electronic mass flow controller for both the carrier and treatment gases. This ensures constant treatment flow and a stable baseline with changing temperatures. Dead volume is minimized by using 1/16 inch plumbing in order to reduce peak spreading. The furnace can heat the sample to 1000°C (1200°C optional) with linear temperature ramps to 50°C/minute.
The AMI-300Lite is fitted with a highly linear thermal conductivity detector (TCD). A choice of filament types is offered to maximize the sensitivity for your particular analysis.
