Dekati Fine Particle Sampler (FPS) is a complete sampling system for particle measurements from all types of combustion or industrial processes. Adjustable dilution ratio, dilution temperature and residence time allow flexible and well defined sampling from i.e. vehicle exhaust or power plant stack conditions to suitable concentrations and temperatures for measurement devices.
Aerosols produced in combustion and industrial processes generally have a wide range of characteristics. Particle concentration, temperature and relative humidity can change radically even inside a single process. Depending on the aerosol characteristics, particle distributions change through coagulation, condensation and nucleation during sampling. Attaining a representative sample from such processes poses many requirements for the used sampling system. Dilution ratios, temperatures and residence times have to be controlled to achieve a representative result. Fine Particle Sampler (FPS-4000) provides the tools for attaining a reliable result in all conditions. Furthermore, the controllable dilution ratios and temperatures make the FPS-4000 an ideal instrument for nucleation studies.
Dilution is done in two stages. The first dilution stage is done using perforated tube technology, which has been proven to be an effective tool in aerosol studies. The dilution ratio and dilution temperature of the first dilution stage are adjustable and controlled. Dilution at sample temperature eliminates the effect of volatile and semi-volatile vapours, while cooled dilution maximises the effect of nucleation and condensation.
The second dilution stage is an ejector diluter, which acts as the sample pump and returns the sample to ambient temperature. Dilution ratio of the ejector diluter is also controlled and adjustable.
With these characteristics combined to a reasonable price, the FPS-4000 system is an ideal solution for all sampling problems
Dekati Fine Particle Sampler is specified and designed under the supervision and financing of the European Union Particulated DG-Tren project by Dekati Ltd. The project was supported and encouraged by the automotive and fuel refining industries for harmonizing the sampling methods of exhaust gas in fine particle measurements.
