Micromeritics Company Profile

In the early 1960’s, a graduate student at the Georgia Institute of Technology named Warren Hendrix and his advisor, Dr. Clyde Orr, built what is believed to be the first all-metal, transportable gas adsorption analyzer. Their vision was to provide a commercially available instrument that would allow anybody (with just a small amount of training) to measure the surface area of materials and particulates using gas adsorption methodology.The two first realized the need for such an instrument two years earlier while working on a research project involving measuring the surface area of particles using glass rack technology (a slow and tedious process requiring constant monitoring). They understood that with better-designed equipment, they could simplify the complexities of particle analysis and convey the benefits of this science to industry.
The term "micromeritics" is used to describe the science and technology of small particles. It was the the obvious choice for the name of the Micromeritics Instrument Corporation, founded by Warren Hendrix and Clyde Orr in July of 1962.
Micromeritics was the first company to market commercially automated surface area, mercury penetration, and sedimentation particle size analyzers. Micromeritics is world-renowned for its pioneering innovations in these areas and others, including porosimetry, density, zeta potential, and chemisorption analysis. The company has also led the way in the areas of liquid chromatography, density, automatic sample delivery, TPD/TPR chemisorption, balanced adsorption surface area, and DFT Plus® data interpretation. The company holds over forty patents in these combined areas of particle characterization.
