Pressure plate extractors
Developed from a complex mixture of ball clays into a fired ceramic body. Good porosity and good hydrologic flow capability. The material is very hard and brownish-white in colour, is not recommended for fluid sampling. Recommended for specialised applications where the pressure differentials are under 5 Bar (72.5 psi). Typical bubbling pressure: 80 psi. Effective pore size: 0.5 micron. Hydraulic conductivity: .000000121 cm/sec. Approximate porosity: 31% by vol. Flow through.
