The effect of $SrCO_3$ content on the microstructure, porosity, flexural strength, and pore size distribution of clay-based membrane supports was investigated. Green compacts prepared from low cost materials such as kaolin, bentonite, talc, sodium borate, and strontium carbonate were sintered at $1000^{circ}C$ for 8 h in air. It was possible to control the porosity of the clay-based membrane supports within the range of 33% to 37% by adjusting the $SrCO_3$ content. The flexural strength of the clay-based membrane supports was found to strongly depend on their porosity. In turn, the porosity was affected by the $SrCO_3$ content. The average pore size and flexural strength of the clay-based membrane supports containing 4 wt% $SrCO_3$ were $0.62{mu}m$ and 33 MPa at 34% porosity.
Key words: Membranes, Clay, Strontium carbonate, Porosity, Strength
