DENSITY CAN (Pyknometer)
A Pyknometer is a straight-sided stainless steel vessel with a close-fitting lid. It is considerably stronger than the old style conical can, and the margin for operator error is greatly reduced, therefore providing greater consistency.
The pyknometer lid has a fine hole drilled in the centre to expel any excess material. The volume of the pyknometer with the lid in place is stamped on the lid, and each lid and body is stamped with an individual serial number to ensure that the correct lid is applied to each vessel.
Each pyknometer is checked prior to despatch and is supplied with an individual certificate of calibration. Current manufactured sizes: 100cc, 250cc, 300cc, 500cc, 1,000cc and 1 Imperial Pint.
