HumiPyc Model 2C (Cement) Gas Pycnometer
Similar functionality of Blaine air-permeability apparatus, which is used for cement fineness determination as per ASTM C204-7 method, has been added to the versatile
gas (helium) pycnometer design. Simultaneous measurements of density, porosity, and air (gas) permeability of a packed bed in one experiment can be carried out
automatically, conveniently, and without restricted substances, like mercury. Since specific surface area obtained from gas permeability measurements correlates with
results of other methods, similar classes of powders can be characterized easily and inexpensively by comparison with accepted standard(s) whose surface area is known
(or agreed upon).
The available gas volume in the pycnometer chambers is known and the volume of gas passing from one pressure level to another can be easily determined and the
time interval measured. Knowing the geometrical volume of the cement (or other powder) bed and the true volume determined by pycnometer, porosity can be
calculated. Since temperature of the test is also known, the air (gas) viscosity is easily calculated. Various forms of the equations employed in the C204 method can be
utilized to obtained the specific surface area
