Mercury intrusion porosimetry is one of only a few analytical techniques that permits an analyst to acquire data over such a broad dynamic range using a single heoretical model. Mercury porosimetry routinely is applied over a capillary diameter range from 0.003 µm to 360 µm— five orders of magnitude! This is equivalent to using the same tool to measure with accuracy and precision the diameter of a grain of sand and the height of a 30-story building.
