Condensation Particle Counter 3750-CEN10

SKU: 3750-CEN10

As a first step in harmonizing the measurement of ultrafine particles (UFPs) in the atmosphere, the European Committee for Standardization (CEN) created the Technical Specification CEN/TS 16976 which is currently being turned into the European standard EN 16976. This standard defines a set of requirements for the Condensation Particle Counter (CPC) and the sampling system.

The CPC Model 3750-CEN10 is fully compliant with the EN 16976* European standard.

Product Details

The new model builds on a multi-generation lineage of TSI full-flow CPCs, which have served as the gold standard in nanoparticle counting for several decades. The new updates extend the concentration range, provide easier use for everyone with an intuitive direct-touch user interface, new software, and secure internal data storage for months of data.

The CPC model 3750-CEN10 fits seamlessly into the family of four Butanol-based CPCs, which includes the High Concentration, the Ultrafine Particle, and the 1-nm models. In addition, the 3750-CEN10 is now fully integrated into the Scanning Mobility Particle Sizer (SMPS) family. The SMPS model 3938W50-CEN enables ambient air monitoring stations to measure size distributions of ultrafine particles in compliance with CEN/TS 17434:2020.
