While exploring the topic of pore size and other characteristics of porous materials, the instruments we come across most regularly are the many and varied porometers and permeameters. Occasionally on this pore size website we have touched upon porosimeters, and for clarity I would like to return briefly to that subject today. Continue reading What Is a Porosimeter?

Meritics – Pore Size and More

This month I would just like to pause and reflect on the important contribution of Meritics (www.meritics.com) to making pore size instruments, advice and support so easily available. This particle and material characterisation specialist supplies and advises upon products from a variety of leading instrument manufacturers, which means it can always be counted upon for an independent view.

You will probably have noticed that a number of the porometers, permeameters and porosimeters described on this website have been designed and manufactured by PMI – Porous Materials, Inc. This is hardly surprising, as these instruments, which are highly recommended by Meritics, have proved very popular with a wide variety of users. Today I thought I would have a look at the background of PMI. Continue reading Porous Materials, Inc.

Permeability in Battery Components

Battery

Components used in the construction of a battery or fuel cell may be exposed to strong chemicals, high pressures and raised temperatures. In developing new and better products, it is essential to study the behaviour of components under different conditions – and component permeability is a key factor. To measure permeability of components in batteries the developers use liquid permeameters and gas permeameters. Continue reading Permeability in Battery Components
