Autopore V

Class leading Porosimetry and proven performance

Product description

The mercury porosimetry analysis technique is based on the intrusion of mercury into a porous structure under stringently controlled pressures. Besides offering speed, accuracy, and a wide measurement range, mercury porosimetry permits you to calculate numerous sample properties such as pore size distributions, total pore volume, total pore surface area, median pore diameter and sample densities (bulk and skeletal).

The AutoPore V Series Mercury Porosimeters can determine a broader pore size distribution more quickly and accurately than other methods. This instrument also features enhanced safety features and offers new data reduction and reporting choices that provide more information about pore geometry and the fluid transport characteristics of your material.

Technical Specifications

  • Proven ability to measure pore diameters from 0.003 to 1100 µm, calculated with an initial filling pressure of 0.2psia (0.00128MPa).
  • Controlled pressure can increase in increments as fine as 0.05 psi from 0.2 to 50 psia. This allows detailed data to be collected in the macropore region.
  • High-resolution (sub-microliter) measurement of intrusion/extrusion volumes produces extraordinary precision allowing the Development of tighter sample specifications, improved production processes, and high-quality research data.
  • Operates in scanning and time- or rate-of-intrusion equilibrated modes.
  • Improved safety features reduce the risk of mercury spills and operator exposure.
  • Available with four low- and two high-pressure ports for increased sample throughput Available in 33,000 psi or 60,000 psi models.


  • Farmacia – La Porosidad y el área superficial juegan un papel esencial en la purificación, procesado, mezcla, formación de comprimidos, y embalaje de productos farmacéuticos, así como la vida útil de almacenamiento de un medicamento, su velocidad de disolución y bio-asimilación.
  • Cerámicas – El área de poro y la porosidad afectan en el curado y adhesión de la cerámica sin cocer, e influye en la textura, apariencia, densidad y solidez del producto final.
  • Catalizador – El área activa de poro y su estructura en los catalizadores influyen en la velocidad de producción. Limitar el tamaño del poro permite que sólo las moléculas de tamaños deseados entren y atraviesen el material, creando un catalizador selectivo que producirá principalmente el producto deseado.
  • Celdas de Combustible – los electrodos de las celdas de combustible requieren una porosidad controlada con gran área superficial para producir la densidad de potencia adecuada.

Other applications

  • Adsorbents, Aerospace, Geoscience, Filtration, Construction Materials, Paper, Medical Implants, Electronics.


  • Mercury QuikVac
    Mercury QuikVac is an excellent low-cost method for quickly containing mercury spills. The device is designed to be especially useful in collecting those elusive mercury droplets and small mercury-contaminated particulate matter. Mercury is collected in a 250-mL recovery vessel and a replaceable 0.3 – 0.5 micron activated carbon filter assures that the device exhausts clean, safe air.
  • MicroActive for 3Flex – Interactive Data Reduction and Control SoftwareMicroActive software greatly improves the functionality, convenience, diagnostics, and data interpretation that establish the new standard for high-performance results in mercury porosimetry.MicroActive for AutoPore V provides the ability to overlay up to 20 runs. Included is the option to import pore size distributions from gas adsorption isotherms to provide analysis data in the micro to macropore range in a single report
