PYC-100A

Gas and Helium Pycnometers PMI's Automated Gas/Helium Pycnometer is used to determine the true volume and true density of powders and bulk solids using high-precision volume measurements and density calculations. The true volume of a solid is calculated from the measured drop in pressure when a known amount of gas is allowed to expand into a chamber containing sample. Thus, the true volume obtained by pycnometry includes any pore volume accessible to the gas. Helium is the preferred gas, because it exhibits ideal gas behavior. However, almost any non-corrosive gas including air can be used. The true density is obtained by dividing the weight of the sample by true volume.
