Phase Doppler Particle Analyzer (PDPA) with Solid-State Laser and Fiber Optic Probes

UGS: TM250

*Merci de noter que cette page est disponible en anglais uniquement.*

The Phase Doppler Particle Analyzer (PDPA) system utilizes a solid-state laser to generate laser beams through the fiber optic probe to form the measurement volume for the simultaneous size and velocity measurement. The fiberoptic probe arrangement offers flexibility for measurements in confined or hazardous environments. 

Détails du produit

The Phase Doppler Method is based upon the principles of light scattering interferometry. Measurements are made at a small, non-intrusive optical probe volume defined by the intersection of two laser beams. As a particle passes through the probe volume, it scatters light from the beams into a multi-detector receiving probe, strategically located at an off-axis collection angle. The phase shift between the doppler burst signals from different detectors is proportional to the size of the spherical particles.

The employment of solid-state lasers and fiber optic probes, offer flexibility for measurement in controlled or hazardous environments. With the fiber optic probe having fiber cable as long as 20 meters, the measurement can take place far away from the operator, for convenience and/or safety. Individual solid-state lasers provide the desirable wavelength and power (up to 1W) to be coupled with the fiber optic probe for challenging spray applications.

TSI’s PDPA systems provide accurate and reliable flow velocity and particle size data from all measurement situations – from simple flows to high-speed, low SNR situations. With a sampling rate up to 800MHz and photon-counting level sensitivity, only TSI electronics have the speed and versatility to handle all of your PDPA measurement needs. Backed by over 25 years of producing phase doppler and laser doppler systems, versatility is not only a design goal -  it is built-in.
