Pressure Scan: POROLUX 100, POROLUX 200 and POROLUX 500 Series
The POROLUX™ 100, 200 and 500 are gas liquid porometers based on the pressure scan method developed for the rapid measurement of through-pores in materials such as filters, nonwovens, textiles, paper, membranes, hollow fibres, etc.

Pressure Step/Stability: POROLUX 1000 Series
The POROLUX™ 1000 series comprises research grade gas liquid porometers for the rapid measurement of through-pores in porous materials based on the pressure step/stability method. The target pressure is achieved by combining an inlet valve for the gas, which generates the initial pressure, and a specially designed needle valve, which subsequently adjusts very precisely the pressure. The pressure and flow sensors will only take a data point when the user defined stability algorithms are met for both pressure and flow. In this way, the POROLUX™ 1000 detects the opening of a pore at a certain pressure and waits until all pores of the same diameter are completely opened before accepting a data point. This results in very accurate measurement of pore sizes and allows a calculation of the real pore size distribution.
PRESSURE AND FLOW RATES RANGE
The POROLUX™ 1000 operates up to 35 bar (500 psi). His maximum flow rate is 200 l/min.
