The Autopore IV uses pressurized mercury to measure the pore sizes in materials. This 9500 model has two low-pressure ports and one high-pressure port. Mercury is injected into the materials at increasing pressures up to 33000 psi. The intrusion volume is measured at each pressure, which corresponds to the volume of pores for various pore sizes from tens of microns to ~6 nm.
