Permporometry is a method by which the characteristics of the interconnecting 'active' pores of an ultrafiltration membrane can be measured. It is these active' pores that are responsible for the actual membrane performence. Application of permporometry on different membrane types, including ceramic as well as polymeric membranes, shows that the method can provide objective information on the `active¿ pore size present.
