Unipolar Corona Diffusion Charger for Aerosols
The Cambustion Unipolar Diffusion Aerosol Charger is a standalone product which places a high level of electrical charge on an aerosol. The UDAC is derived from well established technology contained in Cambustion's DMS500, which was launched in 2002.
The UDAC uses a corona charger, which allows aerosols to be charged to a much higher degree than is possible with other techniques such as radioactive or x-ray bipolar equilibrium charging.
The touchscreen interface and automatic computer control of relevant parameters, coupled with integrated diagnostic and warning capability make the UDAC a convenient building block in aerosol science experiments.
Use of multiple sheath flows of HEPA filtered air minimise particle losses inside the system.
A key application for the UDAC allows the generation of an aerosol of known mass concentration, for use as an aerosol mass calibration standard. This technique couples an aerosol generator, the UDAC, a Cambustion Centrifugal Particle Mass Analyzer and an aerosol electrometer, as illustrated in the schematic below.
Cambustion also offers an aerosol flow meter accessory for the UDAC. This offers realtime measurement of the aerosol flow (via orifice delta P) and interfaces with the UDAC for power and data output.
