Innovative Design: Selective Adsorption Analyzer (SAA) Hardware Advantages
The Selective Adsorption Analyzer (SAA) features stainless steel construction, fully automated flow and pressure control, a touch screen for monitoring and adjusting process conditions, and a graphical user interface for complete control of the reactor system. The hotbox provides a stable operating environment to ensure that adsorption analyses are finely temperature controlled.
The Selective Adsorption Analyzer is also referred to as a breakthrough analyzer because of its ability to generate breakthrough curves. Breakthrough curves consist of three components (See figure below). 1) Complete Adsorption – the adsorbent completely adsorbs the target gas species such that none can be detected at the outlet of the sample column. 2) Breakthrough – the target gas is first detected at the outlet of the sample column. Gas continues to adsorb, however the adsorbent is no longer able to adsorb the entirety of the gas that is entering the sample column. 3) Saturation – the adsorbent has reached saturation and can no longer adsorb the target gas allowing it to pass through the column.
