Features & Benefits

The semi-automated CANNON® SPS Solution Preparation System uses gravimetric (weight-to-weight) rather than volumetric methodology to prepare highly accurate (± 0.02% of target) polymer solutions for relative viscosity measurement on CANNON automated polymer viscometers. Gravimetric preparation eliminates errors associated with variation in solvent density as well as manual weight/volume measurements.

  • Viscosity of polyamides
  • Dilute solution viscosity of ethylene polymers
  • Intrinsic visosity of cellulose
  • Inherent viscosity of PET
  • Solution viscosities of polyamide

  • All-in-one automated Solution Prep system when coupled with an automated viscometer (such as the CANNON miniPV-X or PolyVISC) the SPS provides a complete polymer analysis system. Includes:
    • a titrator for dispensing solvent
    • a scale
    • proprietary software for facilitating and managing solution preparation
    • when coupled with an automated viscometer (such as the CANNON miniPV-X or PolyVISC) the SPS provides a complete polymer analysis system
  • Reduced variability with accurate results independent of temperature fluctuations 
  • Concentration accuracy ± 0.02% for most samples over 100 mL
  • Gravimetric or weight-based sample preparation eliminates errors associated with volumetric methods resulting from:
    • changes in solvent density due to temperature fluctuation
    • laborious manual weight and volume measurements
  • Convenient user configuration and storage of multiple sample/solvent recipes
  • Software directs user to add solute, calculates volume and automatically adds solvent to the sample container
  • Concentration is automatically calculated and stored along with other sample information for future reference
  • Prepares solutions according to weight-to-weight, weight-to-volume and dilution-to-volume methodology
  • Solution prep time is apx. 2 minutes for most samples
  • Eliminates need for expensive and delicate glassware
