Differential Mobility Analyzer 3086

SKU: 3086

A Differential Mobility Analyzer (DMA) is the key component for particle sizers like the 1nm SMPS which is used to perform particle size distribution measurements. The model 3086 is designed to cover a general size range from 1 nm to 50 nm. The Electrostatic Classifier 3082 can be used with any of the four TSI DMAs (see other models 3081A, 3083 and 3085A).

TSI DMAs are equipped with an identification tag so that the classifier automatically recognizes the installed component. This hardware auto-recognition supports data quality.

Product Details

Each DMA is designed for specific purposes. The model 3086 specializes on covering the size range from 1 nm to 50 nm. An optimized flow path reduces diffusion losses and improves size resolution.

Make sure to download the newest firmware update for the Classifier 3082 and the newest Aerosol Instrument Manager software.


  • Particle size distribution measurements, especially of nucleation particles and new particle formation events
  • Monodisperse aerosol generation

Features & Benefits

  • Size range from 1 nm to 50 nm depending on flow settings and scan time
  • Compatible with Electrostatic Classifier 3082, which supports the exchange of DMA models, which allows users to achieve various particle size ranges


There are two levels of service to consider based on your needs: Clean and Calibrate, and Repair, Clean and Calibrate. As every instrument model is unique, please refer to the model-specific service option cards below for details on what each package includes:
