Density Control of Manufactured Goods and Quality Control

Controlling the density of finished goods is often desirable for performance as well as economic considerations. For this reason, many manufacturers strive to develop materials that are partially porous yet still fulfill their function, while others seek an end product of maximum density.

Quality Control

For example, the quality of a thermal insulating material is related to low density (maximum closed cell void space) while the quality of a laminated material is indicated by maximized density (minimized unfilled voids). Precise, accurate, and highly sensitive density determinations play a key role in these applications.

Density influences the overall quality of manufactured products and density measurements guide the manufacturing process. For this reason, Micromeritics gas pycnometers are used worldwide to characterize raw materials as well as to determine the density of finished products.
