Micromeritics Autopore III Mercury Porosimeter

Model: 
Autopore III Mercury Porosimeter

A Micromeritics Autopore III mercury porosimeter can be used to measure the percolation characteristics of samples. It measures the porosity and void size distribution from calculating a two dimensional approximation assuming a series of aligned cylinders, with sizes based on the Laplace equation. The maximum applied pressure of mercury for the porosimeter is 414 MPa (60 000 psia), equivalent to a Laplace throat diameter of 0.004.
