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.”
The AutoPore IV series provides high-quality analysis data and comes with enhanced data reduction and reporting packages, faster pressure ramp rates, a more flexible and controllable vacuum system, and a redesign of both the low-and high-pressure generation systems.
