The Fast CPC is a thermally diffusive, laminar-flow condensation particle counter. The Fast CPC measures the concentration of particles larger than a known threshold size within a gas sample. The instrument also detects particles that are too small to be detected optically (using light scattering techniques) by condensing a vapor onto the particles so that they grow by several orders of magnitude in size. The Fast CPC has a short response time to capture time-variant aerosol particle concentrations.

The FastCPC incorporates a unique wick design that uses a parallel-plate geometry for the aerosol flow path to facilitate aerosol sheathing. Traditionally CPC wicks have always been circular. The transition from a circular profile to a parallel design is achieved by using a unique patented two-piece design. The wick design allows for a shortened flow path and therefore a spectacular 50% response time of just 80 ms. The working fluid in the FastCPC is n-Butyl alcohol and the transport system has been designed to reduce chances of flooding. Coupled with D50 of 1.9 nm, an aerosol flow rate of 300 ccm and a compact design, the FastCPC is a remarkable breakthrough in CPC design.

Advantages of the FastCPC:
*Fastest response time of any commercially available condensation particle counter.
50% response time ~ 80 ms
10-90% response time ~ 35 ms
time constant (Ï„) ~ 20 ms
*50% detection efficiency at 2.4 nm.
*Relatively high 300 ccm sample flowrate.
*Reliable active working fluid transport system avoids flooding-related failures.
*Compact design.
*Vapor diffusive, laminar flow operation provides a stable detection efficiency.

The Scanning Threshold Particle Counter from Kanomax FMT is the world’s only online UPW particle measurement tool for 10-20nm particles. Unlike optical particle counters, the particles are counted regardless of their composition and refractive index.

Kanomax FMT provides products such as Scanning Threshold Particle Counter, the Liquid NanoParticle Sizer system, new Nano-SpotLight, new Fast Condensation Particle Counter. Upcoming products include a Drift Tube Ion Mobility Spectrometer.
