Cake Forming Porometer

Cake

If I say that today I’m going to talk about cake, you might think I’m deviating from the normal subject matter of the Pore Size website.

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
