Nano-porous membranes are ideally used as a medicinal filters.
Can be used for nano-device manufacturing
Main objective is to build apparatus to measure characteristics of nano-porous membranes
Characteristics include pressure differences, fluid flow and average temperature.

Pressure between pores represents the pressure between whole membrane
As flow through membrane increases, pressure difference also increases
Varying pore diameter exponentially increases pressure difference
Consists of various couplings and fittings to maintain pipe diameter
Each sensor is fastened securely to the frame
Membrane holder located at center of system
Pressure Transducer on both sides of membrane holder
Thermocouple placed near end of system
Flow Sensor at end to validate pump flow
System elevated to keep flow level
