Key Features of the POROLUX™ 1000
The POROLUX™ 1000 is a gas liquid (GLP) porometer that determines pore sizes based on the pressure step stability method. This means that a data point is only accepted on the condition that the user-defined stability algorithms for pressure and flow are met.
Complete and accurate measurements
The POROLUX™ 1000 detects the opening of a pore at a certain pressure and waits until all pores of the same diameter are completely opened before accepting the data point. This method results in a very accurate pore size measurement and allows to calculate the true pore size distribution.
Additionally, the instrument determines both the measured and the calculated first bubble point (largest pore according to ASTM F-316-03), a very unique feature in the market of porometry.
Next to that, results on mean flow pore size, smallest pore, pore size distribution, cumulative flow distribution & gas permeability are reported. With our enhanced mathematical model, we can also obtain additional results such as total pore number and total pore area.
Technology and quality combined
The POROLUX™ 1000 stands out of the crowd with its intelligent sensor switching, making sure that throughout the entire measurement the most suitable sensor is always engaged. This results in very accurate measurements. Additionally, the Porometer is equipped with a highly advanced, multilevel stability algorithm for characterization of complex pore structures. A more advanced and representative characterization of your through pores is not possible!
Very intuitive and easy to use software
Even though our software is powerful and comprehensive, it’s also very intuitive and easy to use.
By allowing to change many parameters with a click of the mouse, the software enables its many users to tune the measurement to their exact needs. Additionally, the software, with built-in intelligence, gives the user access to many advanced functions, such as the re-evaluation function and the observation window.
Furthermore, our porometers are equipped with an onboard ethernet port allowing remote access via the internet for installation, support, and diagnosis.
Easily to understand and presentable output
With one click of the button, results are exported in word, excel or pdf. The Porometer software makes it very easy to present multiple measurements next to each other, allowing for a straightforward comparison between different filter media. Thanks to the adjustable scales, graphs such as wet and dry curve and pore size distribution are presented in a very clear and sophisticated manner.
