|Name||FAAM TSI-3786 Ultra FIne water-based CPC|
|Name||Condensation Particle Counter (CPC)|
|Acronym||Condensation Particle Counter|
|Measured parameter||Number concentration of submicrometer aerosol particles|
The particles are detected and counted by a simple optical detector after a supersaturation vapor (butanol or water) condenses onto the particles, causing them to grow into larger droplets. The CPC uses a (laser diode) light source, a condensing lense, an internal microprocessor control, volumetric flow control and a front panel display.
