UF-CPC 100

Condensation particle counter for number concentration up to 105particles/cm3 (single count mode) and 107 particles/cm3 (photometric mode)

The Palas UF-CPC 100 is a butanol-based nanoparticle counter with high efficiency. It measures the number concentrations of ultrafine particles (UFP) in aerosols. Model 100 is designed for concentrations up to 105 particles/cm3. This makes it very suitable for determining the particle concentrations of aerosols, not only in ambient air but also for synthetically produced aerosols, for example, for measuring the efficiency of filter media. In nephelometer mode, measurements up to 2 · 107 particles/cm³ are possible. The counter can be easily combined with the Palas size classifiers (Scanning Mobility Particle Spectrometer / Mobility Particle Size Spectrometer).

The patented evaporator and condensation module is maintenance-free. This allows continuous operating times of up to one year - unique.
