HG-Porosimeter / Quecksilber Porosimeter Micromeritics GmbH AutoPore IV 9500

Basic Information

Name: HG-Porosimeter / Quecksilber Porosimeter
Manufacturer: Micromeritics GmbH
Model: AutoPore IV 9500
Facility: Powder and suspension characterization
Partner: Fraunhofer Institute for Ceramic Technologies and Systems (IKTS)


Dient zur Bestimmung von Porengrößenverteilung und Rohdichte von Festkörpern und Pulvern -> Gesamtporosität


  • Probe: einige g
  • Porengrößenbereich: 5 nm – 500 μm


Micromeritics' AutoPore IV 9500 Series characterizes a material’s porosity by applying various levels of pressure to a sample immersed in mercury. The pressure required to intrude mercury into the sample’s pores is inversely proportional to the size of the pores. This is called mercury porosimetry, or often, “mercury intrusion.”
