The so-called opposite electrode pair measurement strategy is adapted in a filtration/expression cell filled with a model material packed bed.

In this paper, we investigate the electrical properties of a packed bed, with particular emphasis on its overall conductivity.

As a special case study we treat potassium chloride solutions, using model materials of different particle sizes.
