Mercury/Non-Mercury Intrusion Porosimeter

The PMI Mercury/Nonmercury Intrusion Porosimeter is a versatile and accurate instrument used to determine properties such as pore size distribution, total pore volume, surface area, and bulk and absolute densities of solid and powder samples. With unlimited user-defined data-points, automated data collection and reduction, and the least mercury exposure of any porosimeter on the market, PMI's Mercury/Nonmercury Porosimeter is safe, reliable, and precise.
