Pumped Counterflow Virtual Impactor Model 8100

Description

On-line separation of coarse from fine aerosol over the 0.3 to 5 micron range with a virtual impactor that fits in the palm of your hand.

The PCVI is a virtual impactor that allows on-line separation of coarse from fine aerosol. The separation size is variable over the 0.3 to 5 micron diameter range, and the device is small enough to fit in the palm of your hand. With two mass flow controllers, the flows inside the PCVI can be varied to quickly change the particle size that passes through the counterflow and into the sample outlet flow.
