Porosity analysis by mercury porosimetry (poro-Hg)

Why perform porosity analysis by Hg porosimetry ?

First of all, the analysis by mercury porosimetry (Hg porosimetry) allows the characterization of the surface porosity of a material according to its application. Thus, the solid material is immersed in mercury at different pressure levels.

This analysis gives several information including :

  • the volume and size distribution of the pores,
  • the distribution of the size of the particles,
  • the bulk density
  • and finally, the specific surface of the solids.

The quality and behavior of porous materials are influenced by this surface porosity. This is why, with the support and the accompaniment of a laboratory, you can study the surface porosity of your materials. Thus, as industrialists, you will gain in efficiency and quality in the manufacture of your materials.
