Porometry, Porosimetry, and Pycnometry: the 3 P’s You Need for Porous Materials Characterization

Membranes and porous materials integrated in everything from personal protective equipment (PPE) to industrial concrete are often misunderstood. In many cases, scientists and engineers working with such substrates may not realize how affordably and robustly they can be characterized. In this webinar event, Dr. Nanette Jarenwattananon will break down the fundamentals of 3 of the most commonly misunderstood techniques used to analyze filters, membranes, and porous materials: Pycnometry, Porosimetry, and Porometry.

Find out the basic technologies used in each method and examine their pro’s and con’s across a number of use cases and applications.

This Webinar Will Answer:

  1. What properties do Porometry, Porosimetry, and Pycnometry analyze?
  2. How do they make the measurement?
  3. What are the pro’s and con’s of each technique?
  4. When and why should each technique be used?
  5. How do these techniques add value to developing products or processes?

Porometry, Porosimetry, and Pycnometry – the “3 P’s” – are currently widely misunderstood and underestimated in industry. They each add value to industrial product development, enabling optimization of processes and key interface properties in products as well as streamlining quality control in your supply chain management, research, and product development.

Did you know:

  1. Porometry is a great way to quantify how well your filter media actually filters particulates
  2. Porosimetry is vital in determining how a pressed cathode for a battery performs
  3. Pycnometry can measure density of many materials accurately – but it has a hidden dark secret you need to know

Join the webinar event to avoid overlooking the value of these techniques in the future by adding them to your metrology problem-solving repertoire.
