Anton Paar eAcademy: An Introduction to Measuring Density of Solids (Repeat Session)


Complete solutions for solid density measurement


The solid density analyzers from Anton Paar are tried and tested solutions. The Autotap and Dual Autotap tapped density analyzers conform to a wide range of international standards for the determination of bulk density. The Ultrapyc automatic gas pycnometers are ultra-simple to use and provide ultra-precise skeletal density or true density measurements of your solid materials. The Micro Rotary Riffler ensures representative sampling of the samples typically used for particle size, mercury intrusion, and gas sorption experiments from the larger amounts delivered to your lab. 

The Autotap and Dual Autotap tapped density analyzers for powders are simple-to-use, automated devices which comply with a large number of internationally recognized standard methods. They provide a high level of test method control with a user-selectable, lockable number of taps. Tapping rate and drop height are fixed to provide consistent results from sample to sample. A large range of sample sizes can be accommodated with the use of a number of different graduated cylinder sizes.

Ultrapyc gas pycnometers measure the true and skeletal density of solids to track their purity and porosity. Measurements take less than 10 minutes, so they are perfect to control the quality of your solid materials throughout the manufacturing process.

Ultrapycs combine decades of knowledge with groundbreaking innovations to be the most user-friendly gas pycnometers anywhere. For battery materials, pharmaceuticals, building materials, or any solid materials, true density measurement has never been more simple or more precise.
