Volume and Density Determinations for Particle Technologists

by Paul Webb
There are a number of manual and automated methods for determining volume and density. This article, focuses on laboratory methods that are most often used in research and quality control applications.

FoamPyc Technique Determines Open Cell Volume in Foamed Materials

The FoamPyc option for the AccuPyc 1340 Density Analyzer lets you measure, calculate, and report the percentage of open cell volume in blocks of foamed or cellular plastic, glass, rubber, or metal.

Combining Skeletal and Envelope Volume Measurements to Determine Total Pore Volume and Percent Porosity

The skeletal volume of a solid body excludes pores as well as the void spaces between particles. Envelope volume includes all pores and voids.
