Applications

Combustion Processes: Engine Emissions

Following are the manufacturers working within this application with links to their specific capabilities.

Dekati’s instrumentation is used for both tailpipe and blow-by gas emission measurement.  Set ups include exhaust sample conditioning and particle detection.  Real-time measurements are calculated, providing the measurement of particle mass concentration and size distribution.

Visit http://www.dekati.com/applications/emissions/engine-emissions for more information on this application.

The Kanomax Aerosol Particle Mass Analyzer (APM) has been used extensively for investigations into the fractal nature of soot.  When used in tandem with a particle size mobility analyzer, the effective density of soot particles can be determined.  

Visit http://www.kanomax-usa.com/product/aerosol-particle-mass-analyzer-model-... for more detailed information on the APM.  

Pegasor’s simple sensor can directly measure raw, hot engine tailpipe emissions without the need for dilution or conditioning.  The resulting measurement is expressed as mass concentration and/or number concentration.  Pegasor’s sensor technology is used more specifically in the following applications:

  • On Board Diagnostics
  • In Use Emissions Testing
  • Portable Emissions Monitoring
  • Engine and After-treatment Development

Please visit http://pegasor.fi/en/our-technology/engine-emission-monitoring/ for more detailed information.

Topas’ instruments are used in the measurement of crankcase blow-by emissions.  In addition, their instrumentation is used to test the performance of oil mist separators both within a vehicle and during separator product development.  By detecting the oil content in blow-by gases, great improvements in engine efficiencies have been gained.

Industrial Hygiene and Occupational Health

Following are the manufacturers working within this application with links to their specific capabilities.

Air quality at work is a growing concern.  Long-term exposure to fine, airborne particles has often been linked to serious health conditions.  Dekati’s instrumentation is used real-time in the workplace to assess these particles and characterize them based on particle number concentration, surface area, size and composition.  Complete chemical analyses may also be performed.

Please refer to http://dekati.com/applications/occupational for a more detailed explanation.

Kanomax instruments are preferred by professionals that must monitor and maintain industrial hygiene to ensure occupational safety, comfort, and productivity.  Sensitive, hand-held and table-top instrumentation can detect ultrafine particles and their concentration in real-time, in a variety of work-place applications.
