Fast Mobility Particle Sizer (FMPS) 3091

SKU: 3091

Monitor the size distribution of quickly-changing aerosols. Whether outdoors or indoors, some aerosol populations change too rapidly for standard aerosol size measurement techniques. The Fast Mobility Particle Sizer (FMPS) 3091 measures particles in the range from 5.6 to 560 nm with 1 Hz time resolution. This combination of two-decade size distribution and 1 Hz time resolution makes the FMPS a very valuable tool for monitoring particle exposures in rapidly changing environments. Suitable for measuring near street canyons, airports, or mines, as well as emissions from processes such as incineration, cigarettes, or printers.

Product Details

The Fast Mobility Particle Sizer (FMPS) 3091 spectrometer offers a total of 32 channels of resolution (16 channels per decade). It uses an electrical mobility measurement technique similar to that used in our Scanning Mobility Particle Sizer (SMPS™) spectrometer. However, instead of a Condensation Particle Counter (CPC), the FMPS spectrometer uses multiple, low-noise electrometers for particle detection. This enables particle-size-distribution measurements in real time, providing the unique ability to visualize particle events and dynamic changes in particle size distribution.

The FMPS spectrometer operates at a high flow rate (10 L/min) to minimize diffusion losses of ultrafine and nanoparticles. It operates at ambient pressure to prevent evaporation of volatile particles, and it requires no consumables.

The FMPS spectrometer is easy to transport, set up, and operate. Equipment be configured to measure single or multiple runs continuously for up to 12 hours in length. Its large, color VGA display and built-in control knob provide easy access to instrument features, set-up menus, and data displays.
