Porometry is a characterization technique based on the displacement of a wetting liquid from the sample pores by applying a gas at increasing pressure. It is widely used to measure minimum, maximum (or first bubble point) and mean flow pore sizes, and pore size distribution of the through pores. Porometry instruments are widely used to measure pore sizes of material for application areas like Acoustics, Fabrics, Medical instruments, Defense and Filters. The Porometry instruments are mainly categorized in two areas. First one is Analog Porometry instruments & Second one is Digital Porometry instruments. In this paper the overview of these instruments, their basic block diagrams and its advantages & disadvantages are given. Some aspects of digital Porometry instruments are also discussed.
