Instrument Details
Instrument/Facility Name: Gas Permeability Tester
Make                                   : Lab Think Instruments
Model                                  : BTY-BIP
Specification   :Gas Permeability Tester is based on the differential pressure method, and is applicable to the determination of gas permeability of battery diaphragms, breathable films and other polymer products. This instrument determines gas permeability rate under pressure range of 0~20 KPa with resolution of 0.1pa and has a test range of 10~10,000 s/in2·100 mL·1.22 KPa. The instrument is controlled by computer with automatic test process. Three test gases (O2, N2, CO2) 99.9% purity of dry gas can be used for the tests. This test instrument conforms to the following standards: ISO 5636, SJT 1071.9.

  Working Principles
Click to ViewUnder certain temperature and humidity, a constant gas differential pressure is generated between the two sides of specimen. The gas transmission rate and other parameters can be obtained by analyzing and calculating pressure changes in the lower pressure side.
