The Most Probable Pore-Size Distribution in Fluid Filter Media I. Evidence of Such a Distribution from Results of Extended Bubble-Point Measurements



This theoretical distribution addresses those filter media with a random arrangement of pores. It is based upon the concept of a smallest pore, the size of which is a function of the size of the building blocks making up the filter medium. The distribution is solely a function of the porosity (the ratio: void volume/bulk volume). The greater the porosity the wider the distribution of pore sizes.
