|What is the difference between pore size and pore size distribution?||Whereas pore size is a measure of the diameter of the largest pore, pore size distribution is a measure of the range of pore sizes. The range of pore sizes can be normally distributed, and the spread can be quite narrow (e.g. the ratio of largest to smallest may be less than 2). On the other hand, pore size distribution can be very heterogeneous. In the case of large spreads and heterogeneity, the pore size will be far less predictive of flow rate (either filtration or capillary) than it will be for a membrane with a narrow pore size distribution. It is important to note that the pore size corresponding to the bubble point is not at the middle of the distribution, but is the largest pore.|
|What is the temperature range that the nylon net membranes can tolerate?||The temperature range is -40 to 115 ºC in dry conditions, discoloration may occur above 100º C.|
5 µm Nylon woven net filters (NY054700) is commonly used in the automotive industry for cleanliness analysis.
Nylon filters are compatible with a broad range of solvents. Two types are available: membrane filters with pore sizes ranging from 0.20 to 1.2 µm** and woven net filters (NY..) with mesh openings ranging from 10 to 180 µm.
