Palas UF CPC 50 Condensation Particle Counter

$0.00

The Palas UF CPC 50 condensation particle counter is a state-of-the-art measurement device optimized for highly accurate low concentration measurements (for example: downstream from a filter medium or in operating rooms). The Palas UF CPC 50 measures the total particle concentration of ultra-fine and nano particles suspended in air or other carrier gases. These particles are enlarged by a condensation process in order to enable the precise determination of their number with an optical light scattering detector. The working fluid (butanol or water) is vaporized as a condensation agent. The nano particles to be measured are directed through the vapor atmosphere, during which the vapor condenses on the nano particles in a cooling zone. The condensation process is influenced by the nano particles themselves, as well as the working fluid, the operating temperatures, and the volume flow.

Description

The Palas UF CPC 50 condensation particle counter is a state-of-the-art measurement device optimized for highly accurate low concentration measurements (for example: downstream from a filter medium or in operating rooms). The UF CPC 50 measures the total particle concentration of ultra-fine and nano particles suspended in air or other carrier gases. These particles are enlarged by a condensation process in order to enable the precise determination of their number with an optical light scattering detector.

The working fluid (butanol or water) is vaporized as a condensation agent. The nano particles to be measured are directed through the vapor atmosphere, during which the vapor condenses on the nano particles in a cooling zone. The condensation process is influenced by the nano particles themselves, as well as the working fluid, the operating temperatures, and the volume flow.

In addition to their number, the Palas UF CPC 50 also measures the size of the droplets and provides the user with additional information concerning the condensation process. This novel and patented working fluid delivery system provides greater flexibility. The user is no longer limited to butanol or water but may also opt for more environmentally friendly or better-suited working liquids for special applications, in addition to butanol and water.

In addition, the modular design of the components enables the end-user to easily perform most maintenance tasks (cleaning, pump replacement etc). In research mode, the user is able to easily adjust a variety of parameters such as the temperature settings on the saturator using the 7″ touch screen. For process control applications, the Palas UF CPC 50 supports a standard interface with various protocol options (Modbus etc) and provides features such as remote access and data storage on the Internet or an internal network.
