Water Breakthrough

The water-breakthrough test is used for hydrophobic membranes. It is similar to bubble point as this test also give information about the largest pore of the filter membrane. In this test, the minimum pressure required to permeate water from a filter membrane is measured. The water-breakthrough number is dependent on pre-wetting, temperature and pore size of the filter medium. Water is first permeated from the largest pore. This also ascertains filter usability as an aqueous barrier.
