PMI has unveiled a clamp-on porometer, which is a fully automated instrument containing a number of technological innovations, state-of-the-art components and sophisticated Windows-based software. Similar to the PMI capillary flow porometer, the PMI clamp-on porometer measures the bubble point, the mean flow pore diameter, pore size distribution, gas permeability and envelope surface area but does not require a sample to be cut out from the bulk material. Any part to be tested can slide under the test head. The sample can also be continuously fed to the test head. The tests can be very fast, but as no time is lost in sample cutting and preparing, there is no damage to the bulk material and any number of tests can be performed on the material at any number of locations without destroying the material.
