The Advanced Permeability Porosimeter

The Advanced Permeability Porosimeter

The Advanced Permeability Porosimeter is a versatile and accurate instrument used to determine properties such as particle size, particle distribution, pore tortuosity, pore number fraction, pore throat ratio, pore fractional dimensions, permeability, material compressibility, total pore volume, surface area, and bulk and absolute densities of solid and powder samples. With unlimited user-defined data-points, automated data collection and reduction, non-destructive testing, and the least mercury exposure of any porosimeter on the market, PMI’s Permeability Porosimeter is safe, reliable, and precise. It also allows testing under ambient or elevated temperatures to simulate actual operating conditions.

Applications

Industries worldwide utilise PMI Porosimeters like the Advanced Permeability Porosimeter for R&D and quality control. These industries may include (but are not limited to) Rock Core, Automotive, Battery Separator, Filtration, Geotextiles, Textiles, Pharmaceutical, Nonwovens, Paper, and Food. Samples tested include filter media, membranes, coated and non-coated paper, battery separators, brake pads, catalytic converter materials, powder precursors, & more.

Principle

The flow of liquid through a sample is measured by the distance a column of liquid drops in relation to time and pressure. This method gives reproducible results, even for hydrophobic materials, as pressure can be applied up to 200 psi to the liquid column to force the liquid through the sample. Very low permeability samples are tested using an accurate weighing balance to measure liquid flow rate.

The Advanced Permeability Porosimeter uses mercury intrusion or intrusion of any other non-wetting liquid to determine pore volume. The machine fills the penetrometer and sample chamber with mercury under vacuum and takes a volume reading. The sample, however, is not initially intruded with mercury or other non-wetting test liquid because of the high surface tension. Gradually, increasing amounts of pressure are applied on the non-wetting liquid. For each incremental increase in pressure, the change in intrusion volume is equal to the volume of the pores whose diameters fall within an interval that corresponds to the particular pressure interval.
