Differential Mobility AnalyzerHow does this spectrometer product surpass conventional technology?

DMA, Differential Mobility Analyzer, 10nm to 500nm sizing
  • The DMA is a very short 8 inches in height with 4 Dimensional Control
  • a) Pressure compensation for precise particle sizing at nearly any altitude
  • b) Temperature compensation for repeatable size response at different locations
  • c) Mass Flow Control of airflow dynamics
  • d) Highly accurate, Step or Scan Mode, electrode control for improved size response
  • 10:1 Sheath Flow with Linear Flow Control to improve size resolution
  • Recirculation of the Sheath Flow to stabilize size response
  • Boltzmann equilibrium charge is established on the aerosol, minimizing double & triple charged particles, using a low level ionizing source.
  • Software selectable Step or Scan mode DMA

CPC Condensation Particle CounterCPC Condensation Particle Counter, 10nm to 500nm, counting

  • Dual Cavity design to prevent water condensation from dripping back into the N-butyl liquid, which causes a single cavity CPC to reduce its count efficiency
  • Flouro-inert liquid can replace traditional N-Butanol, (Butyl Alcohol) which has an undesirable smell
  • Constant Temperature counting to improve count accuracy from 10nm to 500nm
    Miniature CPC size to reduce physical space required of traditional CPC counters
  • 30 day N-butanol liquid supply

5 Modes of Operation in One System

The Model 1000XP-A includes a Laser Particle Spectrometer (LPS), a Differential Mobility Analyzer (DMA), also referred to as an electrostatic classifier and a Condensation Particle Counter (CPC). The LPS counts and sizes particles in the 500nm to 10,000nm diameter range. The DMA and CPC form Scanning Mobility Particle Sizer (SMS) for counting and sizing aerosol particles in the 10nm to 500nm diameter range. The SMS is operable in the traditional high voltage stepping mode, or in the more rapid, scanning mode, i.e. as a Scanning Mobility Particle Sizer, (SMPS). The nominal cycle time for the SMS is 1 minute. For the DMPS, the cycle time is adjustable from 2 min. to 15 min. These instrument components can be used singly or in combination to allow the SWPS to be used in one of 5 instrument modes:
  1. WPS - Scanning Wide-Range Particle Spectrometer SWPS = LPS + SMPS; 10nm 10um, 1 minute cycle
  2. SMS - Scanning Mobility Particle Sizer 10nm 500nm, 1-minute cycle
  3. DMS - Differential Mobility Particle Sizer 10nm 500nm, 2 min to 15 minute cycle time
  4. WPS - Wide-Range Particle Spectrometer WPS = LPS + DMPS + CPC, 10nm 10um, 2 min. to 15 min. cycle time
  5. LPS Laser Particle Spectrometer 0.5um 10um, 15 second to 30 minute cycle time
