Mercury Intrusion Porosimetry

Determination of pore size, pore volume, and porosity of the sample with Hg intrusion porosimetry method. During the analysis, mercury is pressurized to intrude into the pores of the sample, and a volumetric measurement of the mercury that was pushed into the pores at a given pressure is used to determine the pore characteristics of the sample.

This is a destructive test and samples cannot be recovered after the analysis due to the involvement of mercury.
