Formula or mixes

Ceramic-B0.5M2

This ceramic part is developed from a high fired, Alumina body. The resulting ceramic is an excellent material which is extremely porous, inert to most all solutions, possesses hard exterior and interior surfaces, and is pure white in colour. This material is recommended for low air pressure differentials not exceeding 0.5 Bar (7.25 psi). Typical bubbling pressure is 7.5 to 9 psi, with an effective pore size 6.0 micron, hydraulic conductivity .0000311 cm/sec, approximate porosity 50% by vol. and typical flow through 1/4 inch plate is 180 ml/hr/sqcm,@14.7 psi. The material is ideal for liquid or gas sampling as the Alumina material has almost no ionic exchange sites or leachable mineralogy. This is a truly superior ceramic for both industrial and scientific work where high volume transfer or testing at low pressure differentials is necessary.

Ceramic-B01M3

This ceramic part is developed from a high fired Alumina body. The resulting ceramic is an excellent material. It is extremely porous, inert to most all solutions, possesses hard exterior and interior surfaces, and is pure white in colour. This material is recommended for standard pressure differentials under 1 Bar (14.5 psi). Typical bubbling pressure is 19 to 28 psi, the effective pore size 2.5 micron, hydraulic conductivity .0000086 cm/sec, approximate porosity 45% by vol. and flow through 1/4 inch plate is 50 ml/hr/sqcm,@14.7 psi. The tremendous porosity and ability to conduct large amounts of fluids or gases makes it ideal for quick extractions, and creating, monitoring or extracting pulse hydrological events. The material is ideal for liquid or gas sampling as the Alumina material has almost no ionic exchange sites or ‘leachable’ mineralogy. A great material for most any application involving sampling, testing, monitoring or infusion where precision and actual liquid contents are of importance.
