3Flex – Surface Characterization Analyzer

3Flex Surface Characterization Analyzer

Versatile High-Throughput Surface Characterization
  • Micromeritics 3Flex Surface Characterization Analyzer is a fully automated, three-station instrument capable of high-throughput surface area, mesopore, and micropore analyses with superior accuracy, resolution, and data reduction. Each analysis station is upgradeable from mesopore to micropore with its own transducer for simultaneous sample analyses. With its many advanced features, the 3Flex was designed with a single focus; to improve analytical results.
