Pore Size in Automotive Components

automotive

The automotive industry is just one of the many sectors that regularly make use of instruments for the measurement of pore size and other pore characteristics. Perhaps the most obvious components for which information on pore structure is needed – but not the only ones – are the various filters that play vital roles in the functioning of a vehicle.

Fuel Cell Porometer

Fuel cell

Designed for use by manufacturers of fuel cell components, Meritics considers the Fuel Cell Porometer from PMI to be an exceptionally versatile instrument. Its fully automated analysis includes measurement of pore ‘throat’ diameters, the size distribution of the pores, the mean diameter of the flow pores and the surface area – or envelope surface area – of the through pores. It can also be used to determine the material’s liquid and gas permeability. Continue reading Fuel Cell Porometer

Capillary Flow Porometry in the Study of Filter Media

Filter

If I was to ask you to name something whose porous nature people might want to investigate, I bet that ‘filters’ would be a popular answer – if not the very top response. Today I’d like to have a look at filter media and what a porometer can tell us about them. Continue reading Capillary Flow Porometry in the Study of Filter Media
