Aparature (Our equipment) Description
Dinamyc light scattering- DLS (HORIBA, LB550V) Particle size and distribution measurement  (1nm - 6µ) including media viscosity.
Specific surface area and porosity   analyzer (Micromeritics Tistar) Specific surface area (BET) and porosity measurement.
Differential scanning calorimetry (DSC, Mettler Toledo) Enthalpy   changes in samples due to changes in their physical and chemical properties   as a function of temperature or time (25°C-700°C).
Thermogravimetric Analyzer  (TGA/DSC1MettlerToledo) Measurement the change in weight of a sample as it is heated, cooled or held at   constant temperature (air or inert atmosphere) (25°C-1600°C).
Mass spectrometer  (Vacuum Pfeifer) Determination the mass of a molecule by measuring the mass-to-charge ratio (m/z) of its ion.
