Pore Size Analyzers

Within a pore size analyzer, an adsorbate material is placed into the chamber of the analyzer with the sample, where the degree to which the sample is capable of adsorbing the gas from the material will determine the surface area of the sample’s particles. Pore size can also be determined by applying pressure to a wet, porous sample, where both capillary flow rate and pressure are measured as the pressure increases and pores are emptied. By providing researchers with the information regarding the size and shape of micro-pores on materials, industries are able to further understand their gas sorption capabilities, which can play a crucial role in a variety of products, such as pharmaceutical applications.
