Mercury porosimetry

Mercury porosimetry: top-quality porosity analysis by Delft Solids Solutions

Mercury porosimetry is a sophisticated way to measure the porous characteristics of a solid material, which greatly determine its properties and performance. In a typical mercury porosimetry analysis, pressure is applied to force mercury into the material’s pores. The larger the pores, the less pressure is required. Therefore, on the basis of the pressure needed for mercury intrusion, porosity can be measured. Also pore volume, pore size distribution and density can be determined with mercury porosimetry testing.

Are you looking for reliable and independent analytical labs than can perform mercury porosimetry measurements for you? Delft Solids Solutions is a lab services in the Netherlands that provides top-quality analyses of solid materials to clients throughout the world. In our state-of-the-art laboratory in Delft, the mercury porosimetry tests and other measurements are performed by qualified technicians using the latest equipment.

Mercury intrusion porosity determination by Delft Solids Solutions for better insight into solid materials

Delft Solids Solutions provides a wide range of laboratory services in particle science and material characterization, including mercury porosimetry or mercury intrusion porosity analysis. Mercury porosimetry testing is an important tool to get to know more about the performance and properties of catalysts, medicines and many other solid materials. After all, how active a catalyst is or how efficient medicines will act is strongly dependent upon such aspects as the presence of pores, porosity, pore size and surface area. In our well-equipped laboratories these characteristics can be accurately determined using mercury intrusion porosity measurements or other techniques, such as physical or chemical gas adsorption.

In addition to mercury porosimetry analysis and other porosity tests, Delft Solids Solutions is also your trusted lab services in the Netherlands when it comes to various other material characterizations, such as particle size analysis or chemical composition determination using techniques like X-ray fluorescence.
