Density Analysis of Solids and Powders



Pentapyc™ 5200e Gas Pycnometer

Five station, automatic gas pycnometer for specific volume and true (skeletal) density measurement of porous solids and powders. Each of the five stations can be individually "tailored" for different sample amounts/shapes. Features data archiving to PC (Ethernet) or USB flash/thumb drive, interface to electronic balance and USB printer port. Easy-seal™ covers ensure reproducible operation. Thermostatted version available. more...

Pentapyc 5200e density analyzer
Ultrapyc 1200e density analyzer

Ultrapyc™ 1200e / micro-Ultrapyc 1200e

Single station automatic gas pycnometers for volume and density measurement of porous solids and powders. Ultrapyc 1200e up to 135 cm3 sample volume, micro-Ultrapyc 1200e down to 0.1 cm3. Like the Pentapyc 5200e, it operates via keypad or your PC and standard web browser. Same standard features as the Pentapyc. Additional vacuum purge option reduces consumption of analysis gas. more...

Ultrafoam1200e & Pentafoam5200e

Upgraded pycnometers for cellular plastics etc.; both conform to ASTM D6226. Pre-programmed modes include open and closed cell %, isometric compressiblity and rigid foam fracture. Both retain all the features of the standard automatic pycnometers including normal density mode, with rapid switching between methods. more...


Ultrafoam open cell analyzer
Multipycnometer gas pycnometer


Affordable, manually operated gas pycnometer covering wide sample size ranges. Easy to use, with results in just a few minutes, ideal for rapid quality checks, field operation and teaching. Popular replacement for water and solvent based pycnometers. more...




Manually operated gas pycnometer recommended for foams (cellular plastics), core plugs, cementing and mud solids. more...


Stereopycnometer gas pycnometer


Tap Density Analyzers

Autotap / Dual Autotap

Tap density analyzers for bulk density and powder packing tests including Hausner Ratio and Carr index for predicting flowability. Built-in counter for error-free operation. Automated one and two sample models feature unique adapters for range of sample cylinder volumes. Also used for envelope (geometric) density measurement by dry powder displacement. more...
