High-Pressure Device for Fluid Extraction from Porous Materials: Application to Cement-Based Materials

Abstract : A high‐pressure device, reaching an axial pressure of 1000 MPa, intended to the extraction of the pore solution of rigid and slightly porous materials, has been developed to improve the efficiency of extraction. This paper gives an application of fluid extraction from mortars made with Portland cement. It includes an experimental study of the performance of the apparatus, and an analysis of the results in terms of efficiency of extraction, repeatability of measurement, and effect of the squeezing pressure on the pore solution composition. Results shows that: (1) the squeezing efficiency using our apparatus is higher than those found in the literature; (2) the measurement uncertainty ranges between 1.5% and 14%; (3) no significant effect of pressure (up to 1000 MPa) is observed for concentrations of Ca, Na, K, and Si. This paper suggests conducting extraction at 1000 MPa, especially on old concrete or concrete made with low W/C ratios.
